Now his work is ended, And he is laid to rest,
I seem to hear him whisper, O’ Lord I’ve done my best!
Well done my faithful servant I know you’ve struggled hard
That’s why I thought to call you, From labor to rest…
Pastor Salome Gusman, a fisherman of men, and a faithful servant of the Gospel was born to Marcos and Maria Gusman on October 21, 1927in McDade, Texas.

He planted numerous churches in the surrounding area and enjoyed ministering to his family including grandchildren and touched many lives during his ministry. His faithfulness to duty in kingdom work is to be remembered and commended.
Into the Silent Church they trod,
Bearing the body of a man of God,
Tears streaming down many a valiant face,
They had known and love this man of grace
Their troubles and sorrows into his ears had poured,
The old, young, sick, healthy, poor, rich, dark, white and everyone
His mission finished, his reward ahead
In one quiet moment for the last time he bowed his head.
It has pleased our Heavenly Father on Thursday, July 16, 2020, at the age of ninety- two, Pastor Gusman translated from the labor of this life to the rest.
