Jim Beals Journey of Grace Is Coming to an End

Some of my family got together during the last Southern Nazarene University Homecoming. Jim is the nearest on the left and his wife Becky, my sister, is across from him on the right
I have been informed that my brother-in-law Jim Beals is nearing the end of his 6 year plus bout with cancer. Jim is married to my sister Becky and pastors the Hood River Church of the Nazarene in Hood River, Oregon. Jim has put up a courageous fight as has his entire family, but he has now been checked into a hospice in Hood River and the family has been called home. I may be joining them soon. Jim wrote his testimony for something called "Relay for Life" which can be accessed here:Jim Beals "My Journey"
