David Salstrand Sr. Pastor of Abundant Blessings Church in Cabot, Ark., went to be with the Lord on Friday, June 25, 2010 at 1:53 p.m. He fought a good fight, finished his race, and is rejoicing with the Lord Jesus Christ. Pastor Salstrand touched and affected thousands of lives during his years of ministry. He was loved and respected because of his heart for people. He began preaching when he was 19 and preached the anointed, powerful, gospel of Christ for 43 years. His ministry started as a pastor of youth in Corpus Christi, Texas and then continued as a Senior Pastor at churches in Perryton, Texas; Wichita, Kan.; Dallas, Texas; New Orleans, La. and concluded at Abundant Blessings Church in Cabot, Ark. Pastor David was born in Corpus Christi, Texas on June 9, 1948 to Anna Govig and Oscar L. Salstrand. He is survived by one sister LaVaughn Jones and husband Rev. Sidney Jones of Pensacola, Fla.; brother-in-law, Dr. Alton Garrison and wife Johanna of Springfield, Mo.; two nephews and one niece. Also surviving is his mother-in-law, Alese Garrison. Pastor and his wife, Betty Garrison Salstrand were married on Jan. 3, 1969 at Sour Lake, Texas.

Pastor David loved God, his family, and the church which made him the respected man of God that he was. We salute a great man of faith knowing that Jesus has already spoken the words that Pastor David longed to hear, "Well done my good and faithful servant." Pastor you will be missed by many.
