Rev. Jeff Kingswood’s father, Mr. John Kingswood, went to be with his Lord yesterday, October 30. He was 92 years old. He was at home with his wife Alida, Jeff, and Joan who cared for him.
John’s health has been in a steady decline since he suffered a stroke last October 2020. That decline was accelerated recently.
John Kingswood lived his life as a faithful testament and witness to the saving grace of His Lord Jesus Christ. He loved to sing the praises of His Lord over the years of his life. He was steadfast and faithful in his faith and his greatest desire was to be with his Saviour especially in these past weeks.
Earlier this year (in February), the family also suffered the loss of Jeff’s brother Sye who passed away suddenly. With John’s passing away, he leaves behind his wife Alida, his sons Jeff, Matt, and Phillip (and their spouses), his many grandchildren (and spouses), and several great-grandchildren. Please pray for God’s grace and comfort for the family during this time. Your prayers are very much appreciated.
Rev. Kingswood served the ARP General Synod as the Moderator in 2013/14 and continues to serve as the Senior Pastor of Grace Presbyterian Church, Woodstock, Ontario (Canadian Presbytery).
Please pray for Cindy Scott, Central Services Office Administrator, at the death of her mother, Ann Deadwyler, who passed last night, October 30. Pray for comfort for Cindy and her family during this time as they just lost their father five weeks ago.
Continue to pray for Jeff & Suzanne Allers, World Witness Missionaries, who have tested positive for Covid. One of their sons has tested positive as well. Pray for their continued healing and for their other son to stay healthy.
