Our Communications Coordinator Marsha Bacon passed away on Tuesday, February 3, after fighting colon cancer since last March. Marsha has worked at GNPI since 2004. She will be greatly missed.
Our dear friend, colleague, and fellow follower of Jesus, Marsha Bacon, was invited “Home”. . . She fought “the good fight” and finished well.
— Executive Director Mike Schrage
Lost a friend and co-worker today to a bout with cancer. Our loss is heaven’s gain! Her faith was strong ever since she was first diagnosed. She inspired many people near and far. Marsha Bacon loved everyone and it showed. This picture is from the closing shot of a video I did where we had just enjoyed a one hour prayer service via the Internet with all nine of GNPI’s regional centers around the globe (for which Marsha was the main point of contact and communication). In this shot, she had just wiped away a tear, right before settling into this smile of joy and peace. And today, Jesus himself wiped whatever tears she shed, and she is now in perfect peace and joy in his presence. You will be, and are, missed. Thanks, Marsha, for your life of service to the kingdom that was always done in excellence and love.

I thank the Lord for your dedication to his ministry, the excellent work that you did, and the joy you always brought into the room. I am more than grateful for your love and friendship, through the years, across the miles, and through cyberspace. I will miss ‘chatting’ and giggling with you, my dear dear friend. Love you, Marsha Bacon.

GNPI-Mexico is saddened by this loss, but I know you are now at peace with the Lord. Thank God for your work and dedication to this ministry. No longer will I receive your messages of encouragement and observation of my work in this ministry.

Indeed, heaven has gained a great Warrior Bride for Jesus. No victories for Satan! I never got to meet her in person, yet God made a special connection between us. I’m so grateful and honored to have her as a friend and sister in Christ. Her courage, passion, and warmth was inspiring! She encouraged me greatly in my gift of art.

This woman was one of a kind. I will miss our little talks and inside jokes. I am so glad I got to say goodbye.

Marsha’s friend and worship pastor, Phil Mehrens, shared this video testimony recorded last fall.
“He knows the way that I take, and when he has tried me, I shall come forth as gold.”
