+ Requiescat In Pace + Rev. Dr. Edwin Suelflow

It has pleased our Father in heaven to call Pastor Suelflow home to Himself. Please keep his family in your prayers.

He has now come to his reward, to the place prepared for him and all those who trust in Christ Jesus, to Mount Zion, to the heavenly Jerusalem, the city of the living God, to thousands upon thousands of angels in joyful assembly, to the church of the firstborn, whose names are written in heaven, to God, the judge of all men, to the spirits of righteous men made perfect, to Jesus the mediator of a new covenant, and to the sprinkled blood that speaks a better word than the blood of Abel. For lo Christ says: “I am the Resurrection and the Life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live.” Thanks be to God! He does all things well. May he rest + in peace. Amen.

The Rite of Christian Burial is Saturday, Jan 5, at Peace, Sussex, Wisconsin. The Visitation 8:30 to 11:30 a.m. and service at 11:30 a.m. Interment follows at Emmanuel, Adell, Wisconsin.
