  4. To the Family of George Southland, I ran the Transport For Christ Truckers Chapel in Milldale, Ct. It was a great joy to have George as a Chaplain on the team. George helped in many ways to make the ministry successful. God used George in a mighty way to a bring many truckers to a saving faith and knowledge of Jesus Christ. He has been welcomed with open arms into the presence of His Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. He will be missed. I have the joy of being with George soon in the presence of the Lord Jesus Christ. May you rest in the comfort of the Lord Jesus Christ. Chaplain Glenn P. Hilt
