Pioneer Missionary, Gracie Cutts, Passes Away

Grace B. Cutts, known to the Alliance family as Gracie, went to be with the Lord today, January 21, 2005, in Toccoa, Georgia, at the age of 80. Gracie and her husband, Bill (who died in 1997), served as C&MA missionaries to Indonesia for 38 years. 

Bill and Gracie went to Irian Jaya in 1948 and were involved in pioneer literacy work, Bible translation, Bible school teaching, and church planting, specifically among the Moni people. They fostered the translation and publication of the Moni Bible from beginning to end. Gracie touched the lives of many people all over the world with her fiery spunk, her heart for the hurting and unreached, and her passionate love for her Lord. 

Gracie is survived by her four children: John Cutts, Amy Meredith, Faith Ritchey, and Bill Cutts, Jr. Please pray for John and his wife, Joy, who have been involved with the relief effort in Indonesia. They have encountered visa problems in trying to return to the United States for the funeral. The Funeral will be held Saturday, February 12, at 2:00 p.m. at First Alliance Church in Toccoa. Rev. John Harvey will be officiating. Grace will be buried next to her husband in Toccoa.
