October 22, 2015 Monument of Faith Church and the Henton family announced Apostle Richard D. Henton died.  Although we will miss Apostle Henton, rejoice.  Rejoice because those that are in Christ Jesus live an eternity with Christ Jesus after their body passes away.   While we are given 120 years as a maximum, not every body lasts that long.  But to know that Jesus welcomed Apostle Henton home into heaven is a great time to praise and thank God for the time that this world got to experience Apostle Henton.  Now is the time to carry on the love actions of Apostle Henton by loving God with all our hearts, mind, soul, strength and by taking the gospel into all the world.  This is the video link of Apostle Richard Henton and his son John Henton talking about reaching out to the communities served.

Tears are for a short season.  Apostle Henton’s legacy is to be remembered as a man who loved and trusted Jesus; a man who spoke God’s Word with fervor.  God lends us his breath for a short time and expects us to use it to glorify Him.  Its more than safe to say Apostle Henton glorified God.

John Henton and the Henton family thanked everyone for their prayers and asked for continued prayers, ” We, the Henton family, would like to thank everyone who has shown support to us in this time of transitional celebration. We ask that you continue to send prayers our way and that you allow us a small amount of time to make all arrangements final. We will keep everyone informed on dates and schedules to the Home-going of this Mighty Man Of God. Know that we love you all very much and that we appreciate every one of you. Keep checking on this page for updates.”

 Apostle Henton’s funeral is October 31, 2015 at 10 a.m., House of Hope, 752 E. 114th, Chicago, Illinois.  This is also where Pastor Meeks, Salem Baptist church, holds services.  The viewing of Apostle Henton is Friday October 30, 2015, 10 a.m to 7 p.m at the Monument of Faith Church, 2750 West Columbus Avenue, Chicago, Illinois 60652.  The service will begin promptly at 7 p.m.
