I don't know where to post this. I have been away from the board for many years, but Herb and I live in the same area.

Today is friday, June 15th. I haven't talked with the Peters family in a long time. I was going to Herbs house today when I stopped to talk with a friend who told me Herb has passed. I was headed over to his house to discuss a matter. I have never been so numb, Herb helped me through some really tuff times. He showed me how to get away from the religious spirit and have a personal relationship with God.

I used to go by the name of "in the desert" or "ITD".
There are many new folks here and I see many others I knew have moved on.

I remember talking with Herb years ago just before Holley bought him a web sight, he asked me, "dennis what will people do if I provide them with the facts?" "but I believe with all my heart this is what God wants me to do"

Shortly there after FP and the board was born. I was realy excited for Herb. He longed to share his insights from the biblical standpoint of world events and how they related to modern day revelation.

Holley shared that her father would help those in need, pray for them and share the gospel any time the chance was available. I was one of those who Herb helped. I was actualy at a point where I had given up, and probably would have done myself in, but Herb saw through me and began to share God's Word with me, showing me there was a difference between putting ones faith in man and "the church" and having a personal relationship with God.

What a great witness this brother was for me. I would stop by Herb's business about once a week and talk about events unfolding in the world and there relationship with biblical prophecy.

----------------------------------------

I love the Lord with all my heart today, but I believe I would have stepped away if Herb had not heard the Holy Spirit telling him to witness to me.
This was not an uncommon thing for Herb and Linda any week of the month.

I just wanted others to know that the Peters family have been a great inspiration in our community as well here on FP.

My brother I will miss you greatly! But know you have left behind a witness that has blessed many.

May the Lord bless the Peters family with strength, peace and wisdom.

God bless you all!

Thanks for sharing that. I didnt know Herb, I talked to him over a couple emails but thats it. But I never heard anyone say anything bad about him, he was spoken of always with respect and so many people who never met him had such love for him. When Herb posted his thoughts on the main page I sensed a very gentle soul behind those words and knew this was somebody who had something to say worth listening to. Im thankful the Lord lead me here.

Thank you all. If you talked with Herb or met him in person he was the same. Herb was real, he was no different weather talking e-mail or in person. I just found out that "Habbakuk" from a few years ago has also passed. This has been a very hard weekend for me. These two brothers and losing two family members all in the last two weeks have really taken its toll on me. God bless the Peters family and FP

:praying: for God-given strength and encouragement for you, Dennis, as this must be such a difficult and wrenching time for you!

Thank you for sharing your story and memories of Herb with us. I never met him, so every "I remember when" about him that I read here at FP makes him just that much more "familiar" to me....like I'm getting to know him more, even though he's been "promoted"........

I just love that! "Promoted"! What an apt description of what's really happened to him! :praise:
