The Rev. Dr. Charles Jaki, “Pastor Jaki”,  has been taken home to our Lord. While sadness comes here on earth at such a man taken from us, we cannot help but rejoice in what God has done for him and give thanks for all that God has done for us through him. His Bible studies and services at Mease Manor brought the gospel to many who would otherwise have not heard it. He was a poet, musician, and a great friend to so many, not only at Faith Lutheran, but in the community. He and Elaine were fixtures in the pews each week, rain or shine, their faith and love for the Lord was inspirational.

“Saints, see the crowd of witnesses surround us; Their lives of faith encourage and astound us. Hear how the Master praised their faith so fervent: ‘Well done, My servant!'”

(Saints, See the Cloud of Witnesses; LSB 667, 1)
