From our beginning in Richland, Mississippi, The Gospel Messengers have toured extensively, proclaming our Lord through song and testimony. Now based in Crystal Springs, Mississippi, we are continuing our ministry of serving and sharing Jesus Christ.

The Gospel Messengers
This past weekend was filled with sorrow, and yet with celebration. On Saturday morning, Larry R. Buchanan went to be with his Lord. Larry was my brother in Christ and a very dear friend. On Tuesday, we celebrated his home going with a memorial service. It was a wonderful time of reflection on his life and legacy. Larry loved his Lord, his wife, his daughter, his grandchildren, his friends, and his congregation of believers at Coble Church of Christ, where he ministered for some thirty years. Though the funeral service was a celebration of his life, no one could preach his funeral like Larry did himself. For you see, Larry lived his sermon everyday. The Bible speaks of Jesus Christ being a man acquainted with sorrow. Certainly, this could be said of Larry. But Larry never looked at the trials and tribulations of this life as problems, but rather, they were opportunities to show the love of Jesus Christ to the world around him. Larry will be missed greatly. There will be an emptiness in our lives, yet we know that the measure of this man is the love that he showed throughout his 54 years. There may be some in Centerville, TN, and the surrounding area that may never read a single word from the Bible but if they ever met and knew Larry Buchanan, then they could see the love of Jesus Christ. Paul wrote, "To be absent from this body is to be present with the Lord." We know that Larry is worshiping at the feet of Jesus, waiting on the day that we will all be reunited in Heaven fair.
As Paul wrote to the Corinthians, so he could have said to Larry, "Ye are our epistle written in our hearts, known and read of all men." II Corinthians 3:2
