Voice of the Martyrs' Glenn Penner passes on to glory

Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of his saints. Psalm 116:15

In His perfect wisdom and timing, the Lord called Glenn Penner, former CEO of Voice of the Martyrs Canada, home to be with Him on January 26, 2010 at the age of 48 after a seven-year battle with leukemia.

But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope.
For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.
For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep.
For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
Wherefore comfort one another with these words.
I Thessalonians 4:13-18
