I just saw this and other posts - amazing. I'm John W. Spiers III and Donald was my Uncle, my Dad's brother. I knew of him from my Dad, who also past away. Donald was a good man and used to call me on occasion.
: I happened to come across Spiers.net
: when doing a search for the name
: Spiers. I tried to find him in the
: family tree but was unable to do so.
: I've known Donald Spiers, because
: for the past 30+ years, he served as
: the Senior Pastor of New Testament
: Church and on 8/19, he had passed
: away; He was
: 78 years old (I believe).
: I am aware that he has not been in
: touch with his family for years and
: that his
: other siblings have already died.
: As a result, I doubt anyone in the
: family know him or off him. Pastor
: Don was born in MA (USA) to a
: Presbyterian Pastor and later on in
: life when to become an architect
: (working in OH and CA) before he
: became a missionary; he served in
: South America (primarily Argentina
: where he is known as the Father of
: Pentecost) and did crusades all over
: the world with individuals such as
: Billy Graham and Oral Roberts
: Sometime in the 1960s, he left the
: mission fields and became the pastor
: of New Testament Church (now based
: in Newark, NJ USA).
: He was loved by all who knew him and
: our churches all over the world are
: the loss. He was responsible for
: overseeing all of our churches in
: Americas, Europe, West Africa, and
: Australia. His death is a huge loss
: to us.
: My purpose for writing this post is
: to find out if you have any
: relating to his early life or
: career. Your help would be greatly
