Jerald Tanner of Utah Light house Ministry died peacefully yesterday evening. Here is an excerpt of an e-mail from his wife, Sandra Tanner.
Jerald entered heaven’s gates today (10/01/06) at 7:20 pm….
He went into a coma last night and didn’t give any sign of knowing we were with him today.
A memorial service is being planned for Sat. but not sure where–mainly
because we aren’t sure what size facility we need.
Pray for us as we grieve.
In Christian Friendship,
Jerald and Sandra were both generations deep in Mormonism. God in His wonderful grace led them both out of Mormonism to start a ministry providing humanitarian outreach to the Community, and printing critical research and documentation on the LDS Church. For this, they are known world-wide and looked up to by countless Christians.
I am glad for Jerald, yet sad for his family and extended family- the counter-cult community. We invite you to join us in prayer during this difficult time for Sandra, the Tanner family, and those who knew Jerald best. If you would like to know more about the Tanners and their work, visit the Utah Lighthouse Ministry web site. Condolences can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. Rest in the joy of the Lord, Jerald.
