Reverend Segovia Passes Away

MAASIN CITY – Reverend Samuel Ivo Segovia passed away last August 31. He was only 52 years old. He had served for 10 years as pastor of the United Church of Christ in the Philippines in Maasin City. Well known for his inspiring weekly sermons which were well crafted and attuned with the problems and challenges of our times, Pastor Willy was also very close to his family. At a time when most Filipinos dream of an easier life in the United States, he opted to return to the Philippines after a short time there, because he missed his wife and children so much. Reverend Segovia is survived by his wife Dein Nile and their children Ruth Naomi and Yeshua. (By ANTONIO M. REYES)
