SERVANT DEATH: SBC/NAMB missionary dies

... under curious circumstances.
The death of a 32-year-old North American Mission Board missionary is under investigation by officials in the north Georgia county where he lived.

The sheriff's office in White County, Ga., is investigating the Jan. 27 death of William Flake, who directed NAMB resort ministries in a tourist area about 50 miles north of Atlanta. Flake ... was found at ... home in Helen, Ga.

Colleagues said his death was suicide, but White County Coroner Ricky Barrett declined to divulge the cause of death to an Associated Baptist Press reporter Jan. 30. "We don't suspect any foul play or anything like that, but the sheriff's department hasn't released anything on it," he explained, directing further inquiries to a detective in the sheriff's office.
Brother Flake is suvived by his wife Natalie and 8-year-old daughter, Jorjanne ... would you please join me in prayer for
both of them.
