Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

It is with great sadness that we have to announce the passing of Alfred Paetzold.

Alfred and his family served as missionaries to Mozambique for many years, returning in 2017 when he developed motor neurone disease. He went home to the Lord early Sunday morning, 18 August.

Please join us as we continue to keep Belinda and their three sons—Christiaan at Moody Bible Institute, Chicago, USA, Bernard and Stefan in RSA with Belinda—in prayer in their time of bereavement.

May the comfort and peace of the Lord Jesus surround each of us as we pray, and may the Paetzold’s ministry and example continue to bless others in Christ’s name. Please pass this information to others in your area.

All are welcome to a memorial service at 10:00 on 31 August at Jeffreys Bay Bible Church (visit for directions).

Serving together,
Dr. Pookkattu Paul
SIM South Africa Director
