Please pray for the family of Pastor Rafael Luna Ruiz, who passed away April 10, after his battle against COVID-19 (Coronavirus). Pastor Luna was a devoted husband, loving father, and grandfather, a caring friend, faith-filled pastor, business owner, and community leader.
Bishop Karen Oliveto said, "We give thanks for the life and ministry of Rafael. May he rest now in God's strong, sure arms."
His passing will leave a big void within his family, congregation (Centro Cristiano de Alabanza El Remanente at John Collins United Methodist Church), the Mountain Sky Conference, and the community. Rafael left a powerful legacy and now the family is preparing to continue to keep his light shining.
As you would imagine, there are large expenses that the family is expecting, including funeral costs, medical bills and reoccurring regular bills that need to be attended to, to care for the family. A GoFundMe page has been set up to help the family and you can donate online. You may also send checks to Grace UMC, 4905 E. Yale Ave., Denver CO 80222-6906. Please put in the Memo: Fund in memory of Rafael Luna Ruiz.
