G. A. Mangun Passing

From the World Network of Prayer:

It is with a heavy heart we inform you that Bishop G.A. Mangun completed his journey early this morning, June 17.

Surrounded by his family, he journeyed across the river to the sounds of a victorious angelic welcome. His death was as powerful and victorious as his incredible life. We mourn and rejoice, we grieve and celebrate.

The Mangun family is forever indebted to everyone for their love, prayers, and support.

While leading his local church, and serving on various committees and on the Board of the Louisiana District, Bishop Mangun also served the United Pentecostal Church International as a member of the Foreign Missions Board from 1982 until the present. He also served as an Executive Presbyter. In 2004 was inducted into the UPCI's "Order of the Faith."

The homegoing service for Bishop G. A. Mangun will be Tuesday, June 22, at 6:00 pm at The Pentecostals of Alexandria. Visitation will begin at 12 noon and continue until service time.

Graveside service will be Wednesday, June 23, at 10:00 am with procession departing from The Pentecostals of Alexandria at 9:30 am. Interment at Forest Lawn Memorial Park, Pineville, LA.
