Bishop Meares had a loving and beautiful spirit. He will be missed in ministry. We loved visiting Evangel we will continue to keep the family and his church family in pray, I know personally how it feels to loose a great leader as he was. Back in March our Pastor Bishop Ruth E. Satchell at the ripe age of 100 went home to be with the Lord. Absent from the body is to be present with the Lord.
