SERVANT DEATH: PASTOR ELECTROCUTED WHILE ...

... performing a baptism. Kyle Lake, popular young servant pastor of the innovative University Baptist Church in Waco, Texas, was killed by electrocution during the morning worship service October 30.

The church has replaced its web site with this announcement ...
This morning, Sunday October 30th, our pastor Kyle Lake was involved in an accident during a baptism and was transported by EMS to a nearby hospital. Kyle passed away around 11:30am. Not only did we lose a pastor but we've lost our friend. Funeral services are pending and we will update the website as soon as we have more information.

There will be a gathering tonight at 8pm at First Baptist Church Waco which is located on the Corner of 5th and Clay. This is a chance for reflection, an opportunity to be with friends and to pray. There will be counselors available if anyone needs to talk to anyone.

We are confident that Kyle is in heaven today because of his trust in Jesus Christ as his Savior.
"And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life. I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life." -1 John 5:11-13
The family would like donations in lieu of flowers to be sent to University Baptist Church, the church that Kyle pastored and loved. You may send this to 1701 Dutton Avenue, Waco, TX 76706.

The visitation has been set for tomorrow, October 31, 2005 at 6 pm at Wilkerson-Hatch-Bailey and will be come and go.

Please continue to keep the Lake family in your prayers
May God who has welcomed home his faithful servant now hedge in Kyle's family and comfort them during this time of grief and pain.
