Heaven has gained another angel!  We are certain this angel was greeted with the words, “Well done, My good and faithful servant” (Matthew 25:23).

On the evening of March 15, our dear Pat Ivey transitioned to her heavenly home.  Hearts here on earth are sad for our loss, but we can only rejoice that she is now out of pain, is face-to-face with the Savior she knew, loved and served so well, and is reunited with a host of loved ones who have gone before her.  Among those are her husband, Joe; twin sister, Felicia; and a host of other family members and friends.

As news of Pat’s home going has reached our FCAP family, several immediately recounted how when they first met Pat she greeted them with a warm embrace and made them feel so welcomed, secure, and loved.  That was our Pat!  She was a wonderful helpmate for Joe over these past 10+ years, embraced his life, family and ministry, and was a faithful prayer warrior.  Her words of encouragement, love, and reassurance in prayer brought hope and peace into the lives of many.

Please pray for Pat’s son and daughter-in-law (Seth and Daphne Brown), Pat’s three granddaughters and grandson,  and the Ivey family in this time of grief and transition to Pat not being in our midst.
