Tribute to David W. Hood (1944 – 2020)

These words are dedicated to our good friend, colleague and brother in the Lord, Dave Hood, who passed away on December 11, 2020, from COVID-19.  Dave loved and served the Lord for years through his church and many varied endeavors, and worked tirelessly in putting together this 2020 Missions Fest Seattle virtual conference called Scatter2020.  Dave’s creative ideas, congenial attitude and contagious laugh, in addition to his outstanding skills, helped to make this conference a success and a good beginning for many years to come.  We are grateful to God for Dave and pray for his wife, Margaret, during this transition in her life.
