Former GMSA missionary David Hamm was promoted to Heaven in April 9, 2016. He had been on hospice in Oregon for an extended period of time. He was preceded in death by his wife Evelyn and is survived by son Leroy. The memorial service was yesterday, May 7.
General Director Terry Thompson shared these recollections: “David signed me up for GMSA’s one year STOP (short term missions) program when I finished Bible School in the spring of 1970. The Hamms served a full term in Galvarino following the Bill Strongs. Pastor Alberto Huilipan told me that, as a boy, Evelyn gave him his first Bible.”
