Obituary: Pfr. Martin Ehling

Pfr. Martin Ehling, President of the UAC of Germany, was always smiling and available, still young and enterprising. No one imagined such a rapid departure. Nor do we understand God's timing and ways of calling us next to Him for eternity. We accept them with faith. We will understand them in the charity of heaven and we live in that hope that we may become more and more dynamic missionaries.
