Police Chaplain Ray Payne Promoted to Heaven – End of Watch: Sunday, September 2, 2012

It is with sadness that we pass on this message from Ray’s family…

“We just want to let our friends know that Ray Payne, husband of Barb and dad of Beth Williams, Ginny Dow, Deb Payne Ritz and Judith Payne Crotts, died this morning at about 11:30. Thank you for your prayers these past days. We are grieving but thankful that he is at peace.” – Judith Payne Crotts

“So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory. O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.”

1 Corinthians 15:54–58

Prayer Update

August 1, 2012 Leave a comment

A cross marks the location where Officer David Payne fell mortally wounded on July 23, 1988.

Warm greetings, in His Name,

It is now August and time continues to move ever so rapidly! After several months of doctors and tests, we have been given the date: Tuesday, August 7th, will be the start of the chemotherapy treatments.

Annual follow-up tests, including several bone marrow biopsies, kept track of the M.G.U.S., the pre-cursor to Myeloma, diagnosed in late 2002, following Ray’s time spent at “Ground Zero” (the World Trade Center – 9/11).

There is no known cure for Multiple Myeloma – cancer in the blood and the bone marrow – but our oncologist says “full remission is what we can expect.” “For with God nothing shall be impossible.” Luke 1:37

We would appreciate your continued, faithful prayers… our prayer and desire is that we would be a good witness to all the nurses and doctors we will come in contact with … we want to be “ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear:” 1 Peter 3:15

We did make it to Maine last week for the 3rd Annual 5K Road Run in memory of our son, David, and daughters Ginny and Judy were there, too! Lewiston Police Department also sponsored a breakfast following in honor of Officer Paul Simard. Many more photos are available on the Lewiston Police Dept’s Facebook page.

Recently Ray did a memorial service for a police officer’s young wife who died of cancer – they knew of Ray’s cancer, so there was a bond… we want to continue to reach our law enforcement community to show that there is a Loving God Who cares for them. Once again, thank you for your faithfulness in prayer and support.

In His Loving Care,

Barb and Ray
2 Timothy 1:12
