Tom Beatty a faithful servant, godly father and husband passed away on September 5. For Tom it was the joyous moment that all Christians wait for, to be in the presence of Jesus Christ face to face. For his loved ones, those who served along him and the thousands of incarcerated men and women he impacted in his sharing the gospel with in many years past, it was a bittersweet to say goodbye if only for some a short while, but for Tom it the most joyous moment when he heard Jesus Christ say to him 'Well done Tom, my good and faithful servant.

To Him be the glory
