Alberto Rivera Passes Away
Dear ones in Christ,
A very dear friend passed away on June 20th, 1997. Dr. Alberto Rivera went home to be with the Lord.
Eighteen years ago, by the providence of God, the Lord put a man with a vital message together with a man who had a vehicle to spread it. I thank God for allowing me to work with Alberto in the creation of the six Alberto Series comics. God's two-fold purpose was to:
Thank God, Bible-believing Christians world-wide began using these comics to share the gospel with Roman Catholics. Multitudes have been saved…and the Alberto comics are still touching souls around the globe.
No one will ever know the war that Alberto and I went through together as we worked to expose Rome back in a day when very few were saying anything about this pagan religious system.
Yes, Alberto has been often attacked and criticized, but one fact is undeniable. For eighteen years since the first Alberto comic was published, this man lived by faith, and traveled the world, faithfully preaching the gospel and winning precious lost Catholics and others to the Lord wherever he went.
And though I am saddened at his passing, I am excited that, through his testimony in these comics, his message is preached today, and will continue to win souls until Jesus returns.
Alberto's dear wife, Nuri, and their son, Albert, have suffered a great loss and I'm sure they would appreciate your prayers during this very difficult time. Not only did they lose a husband and a father, but for the last six months of Alberto's life, he was too ill to travel and preach, which was their source of income. Now, they are faced with huge hospital and funeral expenses. If the Lord places it on your heart to send them a note of encouragement, please do so. Their address is PO Box 690897, Tulsa, OK. 74169.
Your brother in Christ,
