Henry Rempel, very likely the oldest living Grace Brethren pastor, celebrated his 103rd birthday on March 17. He is living in a residential nursing home in La Habra, California, and was honored at the Grace Church of Long Beach on March 18. (photo courtesy of Becky Dick)
Among the Grace Brethren churches he has pastored are Uniontown, Pennsylvania; Yakima, Washington; Norwalk, California; and North Long Beach, California.
He was thrilled to receive a television set for his birthday because now his “Sundays won’t be so pagan” and he can watch some Christian broadcasts.
He would love to hear from friends—the address is St. Margaret Home, 981 Flamingo Way, LaHabra, CA, 90631.
