Gertrude Ministries Founder Dies

Postby Kentucky » Fri Jun 20, 2014 6:57 pm

Dear Brethren,

As many of you know Gertrude Ministries was founded
by Lillian Gertrude;Tompkins Keegan in 1968 to further
the kingdom of YHVH on earth. Though the ministry
began primarily as a Youth Ministry, it grew to
embrace deeper teachings of the scriptures as
pertaining to the identity of YHVH's true Ishrayah
and their appointed destiny as messengers and
co-inheritors with Yahshua Messiah in establishing the
kingdom of YHVH on earth. As documented on our website
and ministry publications the focus of Gertrude Ministries
has largely been a work of intercession and fasting,
prophetic utterances and visions as well as fasting and
study of the scriptures to admonish, encourage, and
prepare the elect of YHVH for entrance into His soon-
coming kingdom.

This being said, it is my said duty to report that my
beloved sister, Lily, and companion in the ministry
for thirty years passed into the loving arms of her
Heavenly Father YHVH Almighty early this morning.
Suffice to say, her personal testimony and faith in
Yahshua has been a strength and inspiration to me,
since being called to work with her in 1984. Though
her home-going is a deep and personal loss, I am
comforted in the knowledge that she is now in a
far more excellent place, set free from years of
accumulated physical suffering and trial.

As Lily's successor and newly appointed Overseer
of Gertrude Ministries, I humbly seek the comfort,
understanding, and prayers of my kinsman in Ishrayah
for their help in perpetuating this ministry. As might be
expected, her home-going is accompanied by burial
expenses that must be met. Your consideration regarding
same are both welcomed and appreciated. Details are
available upon request.

Kindly know that by YHVH's grace and strength I look
forward to realizing the next phase of this ministry. May
YHVH bless and keep us all in the center of His will.

In His Excellent Love and Service,

20 June 2014
Please forward this announcement as YHVH leads.
Thank you.

Teaching you how to be healthy...the natural way

Dear Friends and Fellow Health Seekers,

Spring has come and gone, and summer has
finally arrived. Bright blue skies and warm
temperatures invite outdoor fun, but recent
developments in the ministry compel me to

As many of you know this ministry was inspired
many years ago by the needs of my sister, Lily,
who suffered health challenges throughout her
life, many of which were thankfully resolved by
adopting the Hallelujah Diet of Genesis 1:29.
Her remarkable recovery from a death-bed
condition in 1996 proved the excellence of living
foods in restoring the body to wholeness. A
nurse by profession, Lily's discovery of the healing
power of living foods revolutionized her understanding
of proper nutrition, an awakening that ultimately
compelled us to begin this ministry.

For seventeen years Lily and I have faithfully
proclaimed and lived the living foods lifestyle,
a way of life that is scripturally-based and
one which we believe is the pattern for
kingdom living. It has been our privilege to
share the health message on a one-to-one
basis as well as radio and TV. Those who are
familiar with our health ministry know that it
has been a labor of love, though many times
requiring considerable sacrifice on our part.

In light of our commitment to achieving
excellent health the living way, it is my sad
duty to report that despite enjoying the
'Hallelujah' lifestyle, Lily continued to suffer
increasing health problems, many of which
were structural. These problems culminated
in recent hospitalization followed by nursing
care. On Friday, June 20 at 2AM Lily's battle
with physical distress ended as she passed
into the loving hands of her Heavenly Father.
She was 86. Suffice to say, her testimony
remains a sterling witness of her love for YHVH
and her personal devotion to her Saviour and
Redeemer, Yahshua Messiah. Her obedience
in doing His will was exemplary.

It goes without saying that Lily's home-going
is a personal loss, a wound that only YHVH
and time can heal. Thus I earnestly seek His
grace and strength to overcome her absence
and journey on in the ministry. Where He will
lead, I do not know; but I do know that He
will not fail.

This being said, I covet your prayers and
continued support of this ministry in thought,
word, and deed. Embarking on a solo mission
is a new road for me. Kindly know that financial
contributions in memory of Lily are welcomed
and appreciated and will be applied to her burial
expenses. Thank you for your consideration.
It was Lily's desire and it remains mine that
you prosper in all good health even as YHVH
intends (3 John 2). May His blessings abound
unto you in marvelous ways.

"..weeping may endure for a night,
but joy comes in the morning.
Psalms 30:5

For your excellent health and His glory,
Artist and Health Minister
