If you have attended services at THE BIBLE Baptist Church of Deland, or enjoyed them on line, you know our song leader, Daniel Wright. Dan took on the duty of leading our congregational music in 1989 and has faithfully filled that role for three decades. He has introduced us to, and given us a working knowledge of, nearly every song in two hymnals, has kept our music both conservative and spirited, and has been fully dedicated to his position. An extremely shy and private person, it took a great deal of effort for Dan to fill this spot but, by the grace of God, he did so.
Yesterday, Brother Wright informed me that he will have to step down from leading the singing in our evening services. He has been battling Parkinson’s Disease for some years now, the medications he was using to keep it in check have ceased to be of help, and he is in for a very difficult battle with this cruel affliction.
Your prayers for him are greatly appreciated. He has done much to help our church. When people think of The BBC one of the things that comes to mind is Dan starting off the services with songs of praise to the Lord. He is a faithful brother. Thank you for adding him to your prayer lists.
