Leo passed away Dec 1, 2012
Leo was born May 19th 1961 in Phoenix, Arizona. Leo married Tamara Fields Schreven in 1983 and they made their home in Kettle Falls for the past 23 years.
Leo served as an evangelist in the Seventh-day Adventist Church for 30 years. His ministry touched the lives of countless thousands around the world and he will be remembered as a dynamic preacher who helped people find Jesus as their Savior. His All Power seminars have blessed multitudes and his DVDs and sermons will continue to benefit future generations.
Leo loved camping, boating, hiking, reading, horses and time with his family. Leo is survived by his wife Tamara, daughter Cierra, parents Leonardus and Johanna, brothers John, Herman, sister Nellie, their spouses and children.
“And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, no sorrow, nor crying; and there shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away. Then He who sat on the throne said, ‘Behold, I make all things new.’ And He said to me, ‘Write, for these words are true and faithful.’” Revelation 21:4, 5
“He was known for his dynamic speaking style and emphasis on personal development and financial growth based on biblical principles.”
We spoke on many occasions discussing how the Lord brought us together to preach the message of the good news to as many people as possible. As an entrepreneur of 30 years, I have developed excellent public speaking skills, however it was obvious that our union would see Leo deliver his message as the bright star that he was, and I was to assist him.
With my print and postal background, we talked about about providing ordinary Christians with free pamphlets every week that they could deliver to 1,000 homes in their area. These pamphlets would be paid and sponsored by local business owners to penetrate all households. Area by area Gods message would be delivered in your local community and grow worldwide to deliver God’s message around the globe. We called it the “Walk for God” Ministry.
This ministry for the ordinary christian would allow you to go online and choose the message you want. The printed pamphlets would then arrive at your doorstep ready for you to deliver to every home in your 1,000 pocket, every week. Your ministry to local householders would promote the local christian community and preach the message of Jesus.
Though delayed through our life’s circumstances, I do not wish our vision and plans to come to nothing. I wish to hold onto the inspired thoughts we shared and make them a reality.
However, I consider my life worth nothing to me; my only aim is to finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me—the task of testifying to the good news of God’s grace.
New International Version (NIV)
