Saturday

The Sovereign LORD is my strength;

he makes my feet like the feet of a deer,

he enables me to tread on the heights.

~Habakkuk 3:19~

I remember Bro. Ham when he was serving as pastor of FBC, Amite.  His wife and I were teacher friends.

Br. Jim Ham, former pastor of Amite FBC in the 1970’s passed away on Friday, January 19, 2018 at the age of 93.

“You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your mind, and with all your soul “, this is my description of Br. Jim Ham. His deepest desire was not in the things of God, or the favor of God, but for God Himself. He was an extraordinary servant of God, a dedicated shepherd of God’s people, a prayer warrior, and devoted friend. His passion for God’s word and his excellent storytelling skills made his sermons unforgettable. When I asked him what he wanted written on his tombstone he answered, “JESUS PAID IT ALL”! At the age of 93 and legally blind, he was still preaching and witnessing at his assisted living home, waking at 5:00 A.M. for prayer, and serving his Savior with his last breath. We send our heartfelt condolences to his family. He will be sorely missed, but I know he will be waiting for us to join him in heaven.
