Pastor, I found you again on cable this morning after a period of 2 years. You have a God given ability to convey His word like no one else. Thank you for your obedience to His word and conveying it like only you can. We love you a bunch and will keep you in our daily prayers. Terry and Joan Benson Vacaville, Ca.

Pastor Pearson you crossed my mind the other day and I wondered what happened to you. I use to watch you on TV from Mississippi. I remembered your fondness of Mississippi from your sermons. I'm sorry to read about the loss of your wife. I now go on YouTube and catch your old sermons. They are still good just as I remember them. God Bless

Dr. Pearson, Please accept my sincere sorrow for the loss of your wife Sandra. I watched you on Breath of Life and always enjoyed your sermons and your delivery. I always wondered about your family, the Pearson's. That is my mothers family name. I've been working on our genealogy for some time. They came from North Carolina. If you have history of Pearson's from N.C and you would be interested, please contact me. I don't want anything except family history. Thanking you in advance and in HIS Service, Carol

I am sorry to hear about the passing of Pastor Pearson's dear wife. I discovered Pastor Pearson's broadcast at a time in my life, when God had turned turmoil into triumph. I'd lost a home I'd owned 20 years. Although I lost the home, God blessed me to have the home sell for more, in foreclosure, than I owed on it. Therefore, I was able to get the overage and purchase another home in another state. Pastor Pearson, in one of his broadcasts, affirmed that I was on the right path with my perspective about rearing children, as I now have, in my old age, another child who is just 2. His mother initiated a court confrontation over custody. Pastor Pearson gave me confirmation that one shouldn't allow children to run the home or the parent. I was raised to believe this also. I had already been a single-parent father, who raised 4 children that are now grown. Their mother left us when the youngest was 3; that child never knew her mother. My father was a single-parent, also, after my mother died; I was 9-years-old then. I pray that Pastor Pearson is physically fine, knowing that the ministry is a very demanding undertaking. Having a degree in Broadcasting, and having worked in News Production, I also know the demands of producing a weekly television program. I therefore pray for Pastor Pearson's health and strength in whatever God has him doing, hoping that he can and will continue doing what he has been doing.

You have my deepest sympathy, I wondered what happened to Elder Pearson on the Word Network. I'm truly inspired by his sermons and always marvel at the passion he displays when delivering the word of GOD. May GOD bless and keep you and your family during these difficult times and your listening audience (California)will continue to lift you up in prayer.

No one can say anything to make you feel better, no one understands the loss that is uniquely yours...no one but Christ! Know that a enormous wall of prayer surrounds you and your family. I've recently lost my dad and I am ever awaiting that distinct trumpet sound...allow bible truths to sustain you...its all we've got to depend on and trust in.

We send our deepest sympathy to Elder Walter L. Pearson and the Pearson/Holland family. It is impossible for us to find words to adequately express our sincere empathy at this time of your tremendous loss. We, however, remind you of the words of the prophet who wrote: "For Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God; and the dead in Christ shall rise first." I Thess:4:16. We will see Sandy again. As you know, Jesus has made this a reality for all who fall asleep in Him. Yet, it always hurts to lose a God-sent wife, mother, sister, aunt, or friend as special as Sandy. Please know that you are in our prayers daily, in our hearts hourly and in our thoughts always. We wish you peace in the midst of this storm. With God's help, you will make it through.

Pastor Pearson, I was saddened to hear of the passing of your dear Sandra. I often listen to you via the internet, and hear the love you have for her whenever you'd speak of her, or her great meals. I am praying for you, and your family that the very love of which you have preached for so many years is the same love you will depend on to take you this time in your life. May it comfort you to know that as many lives as you have blessed with bringing the Word of God, is as many persons that you have lifting you before the throneroom of heaven.
 
Pastor Wallin O'Connor | Aug/12/09 06:08:31
Our prayers go out to the Pearson family, may HIS love surround you and keep you. Pastor O'Connor and family

Pastor Pearson, Erica, Walter III and family. We share your pain and sorrow at the passing of Sandra. Our loving Father has laid her to rest to keep her from the wrath that is coming on the land. As she sleeps awaiting the trumpet's sound, rest assure that God is with you all. He will comfort and keep you. Be strong and hold on to the loving arm of Jesus. He is coming soon. It will not be long. Hold on, Hold on, Hold on.

Oh Lord, haste the day when our faith shall be sight. Dear Pastor Pearson, she is sleeping, awaiting the trumpet sound. Hold on and continue the work the Master has given you the privilege to do for Him. He won't keep long. We are praying for you in this part of Africa, where we love your preaching that we re-preach in our congregations. Be of good courage and may the Lord apply His comforting balm on your heart. You are not alone, we are with you and most of all, The Most High is with you. Even so, come Lord Jesus!

Dear Dr. Pearson and Family. Earth has no sorrow that heaven cannot heal. We are all saddened and mourn your loss. The bible tells us weeping may endure for a night but joy comes in the morning. I lost my husband two years ago and I can say that when we know Jesus it is possible to have joy again. As you go through each day, hold to Gods unchanging hand and He will keep you in perfect peace. God bless and keep you always is my prayer. Cloretta G. Brown
 
Doreen P. Washington, Miami | Jul/30/09 10:07:38
Dear Dr Pearson: I have fond memories of your beautiful wife and you. During these challenging moments of yours, I trust that you will find comfort in your love for Christ. It's not long now - soon and very soon, we are going to see the King, and we firmly believe that Sandra will to. You will remain in my prayers.

Elder Pierson, You preached at a Youth Congress in Dallas, TX, I was the Music Coordinator and Program Director. I have been praying for you and your family for the last two days. I first began my prayers when I found out your wife was ill. Stay encourage. My dad died last year and I never felt such pain. I depend on God daily. God still has work for you to do remeember you must go on, I heard your sermon this morning on the Hope station. Please stay fight on. We need the gift God has given you. I also work with Pastor Black. esther

Like much of the rest of the Adventist world, I too, am saddened by the loss of Sister Pearson. However, my sadness is directed toward those loved ones who are left behind and very well may be crippled in their labors for the cause of Christ, as a result of her death. Therefore, I lend my condolences to her husband, Elder Walter Pearson, who has inspired my heart countless numbers of time with his preaching; her children; her sister Vivian Joseph and others. May God sustain and keep each one, during this painful hour and may each one of them keep their lives, so in sync with God that they will be able to live with her again throughout the ceaseless ages of eternity is my prayer.
