Hello Everyone,

We have just received notice that a dear friend has passed on to be with the Lord. She was a missionary to Africa and a powerful woman of God. Valerie Rich-Dixon has gone home to be with the Lord today. We are asking that you keep her husband Chaplain Calvin Dixon, her mother Letha May Rich and Brother Elder Sylvester Grant and family in prayer.

Sis Valerie was a treasured co-laborer with AOF. She accompanied Dr. Peggy to Nigeria and Togo in 2004, as well as serving as a missionary in Sierra Leone prior to that trip. The Nigerians and Toglese who met her will never forget her and have been forever impacted by her life and her love for the Lord and for them. She was very instrumental in helping to get AOF off the ground in the Liberty County area, before she and Chaplain Dixon were transferred to Virginia

She will be sorely missed here, though we know Heaven is rejoicing tonight. We will be sending more information as it becomes available.

For the Kingdom's Advance,
Drs. Joe and Peggy Rayman
