Word has been received of the death of Ryan Hulett, son of Clay and Kim Hulett, pioneer Grace Brethren missionaries to Asia.
Ryan died May 9, 2015 following a bout with cancer. He was 27.
Ryan was a graduate of Faith Academy in the Philippines.
Funeral services will be held Saturday in the Long Beach area. Information will be posted here as it becomes available.
The Huletts were among a team from the Grace Brethren Church, Long Beach, Calif., who began Grace Brethren ministries in Asia. They served in the Philippines from 1984 to 2006, according to Jay Bell, who was then college pastor at the Long Beach church. Clay Hulett was on the part-time staff in the college ministry and a number from that ministry went on to work in Asia, including Cecil and Debbie O’Dell, who served in Japan and now leads the Japanese Ministries of Greater Los Angeles for Encompass World Partners, and Eric and Debbie Smith, who now serve with One Challenge.
