It is with deep sorrow that I have to report the death of our Filipino brother in Christ, Pastor Alex Dane at about 3:00pm Philippine time (8:00pm NZ time) today, January 26th. Bro Alex had a stroke earlier this weekend and did not regain consciousness. Unfortunately Alex passed away in Ormoc on the island of Leyte which is some distance from Mindanao and Cagayan De Oro which is where his wife, Vivian, and family live. I understand that Vivian was with Alex when he passed away.
Some of us Kiwis first met Alex and family when we were involved in the first Kiwi ACMissioNZ work team to Oro Bible College in May 1990. After serving as a Pastor in BPACCI churches Pastor Alex worked in an NGO with those who had been left homeless because of recent typhoons and other such situations thus he was in Leyte recently.
We extend to Sis. Vivian and the family our sincere sympathy knowing that Bro. Alex is asleep in Jesus Christ awaiting the glorious Resurrection Morning when we shall be reunited in the presence of Christ our Lord and Saviour.
