a legacy for the lord By Gary Sprunger Steve and Treasa Fox joined BIMI in the summer of 1975. During their first term of missionary service, I had the joy of meeting them in Trinidad. They had come to help the BIMI team start churches. After their short term there, the Lord led them back to the United States to reach Native Americans for Christ. Steve was a devoted man. He and Treasa headed to Mesa, Arizona, to start a church on the reservation. Nearly seven years ago, Steve was diagnosed with cancer. Determined to faithfully serve Christ, Steve never missed an opportunity to be a witness for his Lord. The impact he made on the Indian reservation was unbelievable. Treasa wrote these words, “Steve went home to be with the Lord on Friday morning, June 12, 2015. The Lord allowed me to be at his side. He was well aware of his surroundings and the situation during his last moments. Steve was faithfully serving to the very end. He was at church both Sunday and Wednesday night teaching as best he could and went home on Friday. He left a handwritten prayer on a paper by his wallet which read: Because I don’t know how to pray each day and each night for the next day, Lord, because I don’t know when or what day you are taking me home—this is my prayer for each day. Lord, if I continue in this life today and am still here this evening, help me to live the day so you will be honored and be glorified and proud. And Lord, if I die today in this life, and you bring me home to be with you today, may I have lived this day in a manner that no one has to guess who I belonged to or why I was alive. I want to finish this life so that you might be glorified. When it is all said and done, I just want to finish well for you. Might this be our prayer, also. 10 Islander – October 2015
