Amy Lambert, a charismatic evangelist, died earlier this month after asking for prayers on Facebook.
Lambert was the founder and president of Invasion and Hope Rising ministries. She spent some time training with Reinhard Bonnke and working with Brian "Head" Welch of Korn. She died Jan. 7. She was 33.
"Our hearts are broken at the loss of our dear friend and former Discipleship Ministries Council Member, Amy Lambert. Amy passed away on Sunday, Jan. 7, 2018. She touched the lives of many through her ministry, and through the word of her powerful testimony. She left an eternal legacy on the hearts of every person she encountered, and our thoughts and prayers are with her family," according to the International Pentecostal Holiness Church website.
According to the obituary:
She was known for her heart of compassion, and unconditional love. Her vision was limitless and her zeal infectious. Amy was the founder of Hope Uprising and Invasion. Both ministries were birthed from her desire to reach the hopeless and rejected. Her passion for souls fearlessly and fiercely took her to some of the darkest corners of the earth.
Amy loved in a BIG way, in return, she was loved BIG by others! But by far, her greatest love was her blessed redeemer and Lord Jesus Christ. She was never ashamed of the gospel of Jesus Christ, and proclaimed it freely to all who would hear. Her light was bright, and will continue through those whose lives she touched.
We rejoice for her as she embraces the joys of heaven, and know that shortly, we will be with her again. She was born June 10, 1984, in Abingdon, VA. She was preceded in death by her grandparents, James Roberts, Judy Lambert and Bernard Lambert Sr.; one nephew, Israel Lambert.
Amy is survived by her mother, Donna Husband and husband John of Bramwell, WV; father, R.B. Lambert, Jr. of Castlewood, VA; two brothers, David Lambert of Seattle, WA and Jonathan Lambert and wife Nicole of Charlotte, NC; two nephews, Jack Lambert and Levi Lambert; grandparents, Lovis Roberts of Richlands, VA, James and Margaret Husband of Kissimmee, FL; several aunts, uncles, cousins, many friends, and her beloved fur baby, Gideon also survive.
A GoFundMe was set up for her funeral expenses.
Friends and family, we thank you so much for reaching out to us in the passing of our sweet Amy. The loss is devastating to all who knew and loved her so much. As you can imagine, we could have never planned for such an untimely death of such a young precious loved one and the need to cover such an expense is great. If you can help ease the financial expense of funeral costs it would be greatly appreciated. It is our desire to honor Amy's memory. She has blessed so many and given so much of herself to others.
