I praise God for the faithfulness and dedication of Reid to the high calling of missions and loving the people of Bangladesh. He came from a heritage rich in living to show Jesus Christ to a lost, sinful world. I know he heard the words "Well Done, good and faithful servant" and he is enjoying worshipping his Savior face to face. Thank you, Lord, for Reid.
