On Wednesday, March 14, we said goodbye to James Paul Thompson. A beloved son, a treasured brother, a wonderful husband, and an amazing father. In addition to an already full life he was also Pastor to several congregations and touched thousands of lives. He managed to find joy in every aspect of life. He was always finding ways to teach us more about Jesus than what was simply on the pages. God spoke to him in a way that spoke to others without effort. Paul was always able to make new friends; and make their lives better by knowing him. After dozens of mission trips, hundreds of lessons, and quite possibly a million pictures; Paul has returned home to be with Christ.
