Ocean Springs

Manuel Ernesto Lepe Villafranca, age 67, departed this life on April 16, 2023 and is with Jesus Christ, seeing his faith become sight. For 20 years, through Evangelistic International Ministries (E.I.M), Manuel served as a Missionary Pastor, along with his wife Maira, meeting the physical needs of the Honduran people and sharing Christ’s death, burial, and resurrection in the place of an eternity in Hell. (John 3:16)

Manuel is survived by his wife, Maira Lisette Alvarenga Calidonio; his daughter, Olga Sofia Bayles (James Jason Bayles); his father, Manuel Lepe Benitez; and his brothers, Carlos Lepe, and Gustavo Lepe. Manuel is preceded in death by his mother, Olga Maria Villafranca.

7I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Henceforth there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, will award to me on that day, and not only to me but also to all who have loved his appearing.” 2 Timothy 4:7&8

A graveside service will be held on Tuesday, April 18, 2023 at 2:00 PM at Pleasant Hill Baptist Church in Saucier, MS.
