Obituary

       Prophet John Elbert Jones, Sr,. son of Doris Blow Jones and the late Elbert H. Jones, began his journey through life on Sunday, September 3, 1944, in Southampton County, Virginia.

       Prophet Jones was educated in the Southampton County School System. For a number of years, he worked as a truck driver; later becoming an entrepreneur, where he owned and operated J.J., Inc. Trucking Company.

       Early in life, John, accepted Christ as his Lord and Personal Savior. Seeing the need to continue to nurture his spiritual gifts, John later united in Christian Fellowship with the New Beginning Word Ministry, where he served as a Prophet.

       On Tuesday, July 20, 2021, God in His infinite wisdom, lifted Prophet John Elbert Jones, Sr. from this world of sin, sorrow and pain, to a place of sweet eternal rest and peace.

       It’s sometimes hard to understand why these things have to be. Our sad hearts seek the answer, but it’s not for us to see we can only trust in God and know that in some way, It’s all a part of His great plan, we’ll understand someday. Memories are treasures no one can steal, death is the heartache nothing can heal. Some may forget you now that you are gone, but we who remain shall remember you no matter how long: wife, Carolyn D. Jones; son, John E. Jones, Sr. (Denise); daughter, Twyla S. Person; children-at-heart, Henry Hogan, Apostle Ronda Johnson (Rickey) and Tracy Kittrell; ten grandchildren, six great-grandchildren; mother, Doris B. Jones; sister, Shirley J. Mabrey (Lloyd); brothers, Elder Michael Whitehead (Delsa) and Floyd Whitehead; aunts, Martha L. Nicholson and Helen F. Blow; a host of niece, nephews, relatives and friends.
