On the 31st day of May in the year 1688, John Bunyan, well known author of "The Pilgrim's Progress", went home to be with the Lord. John Bunyan was imprisoned for preaching the word of God, and in the eleventh year of his imprisonment he accepted a pastorate of a Baptist Church. The guard was so fond of Bunyan that he would allow Bunyan to go visit his church and preach. However, as he was on a journey in the year 1688, for the sake of the ministry, he contracted a fatal illness and departed this world to enter into that city of which God is the builder and maker. Would to God that someone would love Him enough to serve as did Bunyan. God give us some men!
