PASTOR GORDON AND RUTH SHIRA

Pastor Gordon Shira, Charlottesville, VA, served on the FFHM Board as a spiritual adviser from 1973 to 1985. Gordon was also very involved in the establishment of our Bible Institute. Gordon is now in his 90s and his wife, Ruth, requests prayer. Gordon is now facing life-threatening physical problems. We pray for God's will to be done.
