I am proud to say that I was a member of First Family Church while David was a pastor. His teachings made a profound impact on me. He was a awesome soul winner and impacted many lives and many people will go to heaven when they die because of him. I am sad to learn of his passing. The Lord called him home for a reason that we will never know or understand. I pray blessings over his entire family. Beverly Perry Beverly Perry, August 18, 2014 To the family: I am truly sorry for your loss. Please find comfort and hope in the scripture at Revelation 21:3,4. r gray, October 13, 2011 My granddaughter and I were blessed to have met Dr. Allbritten at the Winners Edge Church when we visited during the Power Teams visit. I know He was a great man of God and I feel blessed to have met him. My condolences to the family. Brenda Kaye Nelson, October 7, 2011 It is with great sorrow that we heard about the passing away of Pastor David Allbritton this morning. I had the privilege of knowing Pastor David Allbritton and his family for over a decade. During the years late 90's and early 2000's, I was the Crusade Director for David Allbritton ministries based out of Dallas. A trip down the memory lane reminds me of a phone call to his office after hearing Pastor David Allbritton on KVTT Radio station in the late 90’s where it all began. It resulted in a crusade in Kerala, India, Gospel meetings in Abu Dhabi, UAE, and month long mega crusades in Ethiopia. The Ethiopian experience was the best of all. I still cherish our fond memories of street preaching, truck top preaching, and open village market preaching, and preaching from building tops. Several pictures of Ethiopia on the web and you tube were personally taken by me. Praise God for the Ministry of David. God used Pastor David to take me to Ethiopia and subsequently, I led two teams of Indian Christians from NY to Ethiopia. Now they have hundreds of churches, numerous schools and various social service projects established. Since 2005 several teams go to Ethiopia and minister each year. It all began with Pastor David and his zeal for winning souls. I moved his office to Florida and was glad to see him when he returned to Dallas. I have been David’s interpreter, tour guide, missions’ director, photographer and a friend. We spent long hours driving on dirt roads of Ethopia and in buses in India and United Arab Emirates. Of all the people that I have known and met in this world, there is none greater than David the greatest soul winner of our times. I have seen him weep and pray over lost souls. He leaves behind a great legacy for us to follow. The last I heard from him was last month when he called and left a message saying “hey Sushil, this is your buddy David Allbritton……” I will miss him here on earth but will see him in Glory when “The clouds be rolled back as a scroll; The trump shall resound, and the Lord shall descend”. Sushil Mathew, September 21, 2011 So many fond memories over the years I have known the Allbritton Family, too numerous to post. I came to the Lord Jesus under Bert Allbritton's ministry when I was 35 years old, and found more love, acceptance and understood that a Sinner like me could be saved by God's grace and mercy. The Allbritton family has left lasting impressions on my life and thanks to their sacrificialy giving of themselves, my daughter Jessica Nicole Akin also gave her life to Jesus. It is with heavy hearts we say goodbye to Pastor David for now, but we will see him in our Heaven's Home. Our prayers are with the entire family and just know your lives have touched ours for eternity. We love you and are praying for you! Love, Carla Jean and Jessica Akin, September 20, 2011
