Andre Jones Retires after 27 years of Service

Andre is an incredible witness for Jesus Christ. He always has a smile on his face and an uplifting encouraging word to give for you. He has served 27 years in the Navy, many of them under the Command of the United States Marine Corps. Andre (pictured right between Pastor Tom and Pastor Rick) will be heading home back to the United States in a couple of weeks. We had the privilege of attending his retirement service here in Okinawa. It was such an honor to be there and to see the many distinguishing accomplishments that Andre has fulfilled. I will personally remember Andre as we would always see him in the Gym about 7am in the morning. We would just be getting started, but Andre was already working out. Before 7am he had already ran his 5k, and be finishing up, getting ready for his day. God bless you Andre, may the Lord continue to lead and guide you. Pastor Tommy
