All the members of Faith Tabernacle, along with Pastor Harold & Joyce Davis, send love, prayers, and support to all the family members. Vance was a member for 30+ years. He was known as a "Prayer Warrior" in the church. He would faithfully every Sunday go in the men's prayer room and pray. He was a soft spoken, shy man until the spirit of the Lord moved in him. He would take the prayer lists and walk around the room praying, several list that remained in the room week after week, he wore them out walking and praying. When you came in the main entrance of our church many times Vance could be heard praying, What a welcome. I can say he is probably leading a prayer group in Heaven now. What a blessing he was to us all.
