“It’s been a tough year,” Evans, senior pastor of Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship in Dallas, told The Christian Post during a sit-down interview in Nashville, Tennessee.

“I lost my brother, lost my sister, lost my sister’s husband, lost my niece of a sudden heart attack at 39,” he said. “I lost my father, and I lost my wife. My daughter Priscilla had lung surgery due to some growth irregularities that needed to be removed. My oldest daughter Chrystal has a growth in her leg that’s suspect. We’ve had a lot of challenges this year.”

Yet through it all, Pastor Evans stressed, he can confidently say: “God is faithful, even when He’s confusing.”
