Floyd McClung, an author and international missions leader, will be remembered at a local service this Saturday. It will be held at 10 a.m. at Shoal Creek Community Church in Pleasant Valley, Mo.
McClung passed away on May 29 at age 75 in Cape Town, South Africa, after an extended illness he had battled since 2016, which left him incapacitated for more than five years. The day he fell ill, he was teaching and prophetically said to All Nations’ missions students, “If I cannot continue, will you finish the race?”
“I know that I know that I know that I could not have survived these last five-plus years without all the prayers that have been lifted up on our behalf,” said Sally McClung, Floyd’s wife and All Nations cofounder. ” I am so very, very grateful for all the prayers The last couple of years we have prayed for ‘healing or heaven’ for Floyd. Of course, we hoped for healing, but God chose heaven. I trust that choice completely and, ultimately, Floyd is now healed, too. He received both answers.”
Mary Ho, Ph.D., international executive leader of All Nations International said, “Although we grieve the passing of Floyd, we celebrate his reunion with Jesus and his strong apostolic calling to reach the neglected. Now the baton has been handed to each one who will take it. Will you help finish the race?”
Roy Moran, a friend of Floyd McClung and senior pastor of Shoal Creek Community Church, will serve as host of the event remembering McClung and his work in missions.
