Monthly Spotlight


    This is the most difficult news that I have to tell you. My dear husband and President of Capernaum Ministries, Jim Way went home to be with the Lord last Saturday, January 6. A celebration of his life will take place this Saturday, January 13 at 11:00 am at Capernaum Lakeside Lodge, 3111 Masterpiece Rd, Lake Wales, FL.

    Jim was all about the Kingdom of God – on earth as it is in Heaven. Because of the love he had for people, and the dedication to God’s work, his legacy will continue far beyond and  into the future. This is a sure promise.

    One of Jim’s favorite Bible passages is Acts 2:42-47. This translation is from his well worn New American Standard Bible:

    42 They were continually devoting themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer.43 Everyone kept feeling a sense of awe; and many wonders and signs were taking place through the apostles. 44 And all those who had believed were together and had all things in common; 45 and they began selling their property and possessions and were sharing them with all, as anyone might have need. 46 Day by day continuing with one mind in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, they were taking their meals together with gladness and sincerity of heart,47 praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord was adding to their number day by day those who were being saved.

    Jim will be missed greatly by many, but mostly by me.

    Thank you and God bless you.
