DACULA, Ga. (BNc) – Jimmie Hill, who was an elder at the New Hope Road congregation, died on Thursday evening, Aug. 23.

Hill was a preacher and former missionary to American Samoa and served as co-director of the International Bible Teaching Ministries.

In an April 14, 2012 post on Facebook, brother Hill wrote: “An illness, such as incurable cancer, can torture and hamper the body. However, it cannot affect one’s spirit unless one allows it to do so. Illnesses such as this should set up a greater praise to God who always hears the prayers of the righteous…whatever happens, happens – God knows best!”

There will be a memorial service on Saturday, Sept. 1 at 11:00 a.m. at the New Hope Road Church of Christ, 3353 New Hope Road, Dacula, Ga.

Barbara has been involved in missions for over 25 years, both in the field and in publishing.
