Beloved Voice of Prophecy soloist Del Delker passed to her rest this morning in Porterville, Calif., at the age of 93. For more than five decades, whether over the airwaves, in a church or at an evangelistic meeting, her strong contralto voice unabashedly shared Christ's love with rapt audiences around the world. Said Voice of Prophecy Speaker/Director Shawn Boonstra, "Del had the ability to preach a sermon through a song. Her face was radiant with the love of Christ, and over and over, I heard people say that listening to her was a taste of heaven!"
Her close friend (and pianist/organist) Phil Draper said, "I spoke to her last week and found her bright, witty and jovial—but tired. She was ready to rest in the arms of Jesus. She commented how she'd sung and talked about the soon coming of Jesus and was amazed it hadn't happened. Next awakening she will see Him face-to-face. I promised her we'd travel through the Universe singing His praises. Rest dear friend, Del. I will see you in the Morning."
