Prayer for a friend

My friend in Christ, Orval Halley, needs the healing hand of God. He’s very sick with pancreatic cancer, and will not live much longer unless God heals him.

Halley was my pastor for about 12 years. He has been a blessing to me and my family. He “retired” from his pastorate about 4 years ago to pursue full time missions in the 10-40 window. Pastor Halley is a man who is sold out for the kingdom. He has a commitment to God that I have seen in few other people.

If God places it on your heart, please pray for him and his wife Roberta, and for their extended family. I believe that God has more for him to do in this life.

[update: Pastor Orv went to be with his Father on 5-9-08]

  1. I’m one of Orval’s nephews.If this is the Orval Halley from Yakima, Washington who is also the Reverend Halley who is my uncle…then I’m sorry to report he died early Friday morning.While I’m sorry he’s gone and I won’t see him again (and I haven’t seen him for quite some time), I am very comforted by the fact(!) that I know I will see him again, in Heaven.Thank you so much for your prayers and concerns; he truly was a man of God, and he will be richly rewarded for all he’s done for so many. -T

  2. Here’s the e-mail I just got, forwarded by my brother via my uncle’s oldest son, Steve.
