Dear Friends and Partners,

It is with deep grief that we announce the passing of Irvin Baxter. Though, we find comfort in knowing that he has without a doubt entered his great reward. He was 75.

Irvin was hospitalized last week with COVID-19. Since then, a vast network of churches and ministries, have been in almost constant prayer for him. The team at Endtime wants you to know that we appreciate your prayers and support through this season.

A memorial service is being planned for later this month. As we have updates on arrangements, we will make you aware.

In lieu of flowers, his family requests donations to Endtime Ministries to continue advancing Irvin’s God-give vision and the Kingdom of God.

Please remember the Baxter family in your prayers, that the “peace of God, which passeth all understanding,” would keep their hearts and minds in Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:7).

If you would like to share your thoughts with Irvin and our team, please do so via the form below as opposed to calling and emailing.

Judy

Irvin’s wife Judy remains at home and woke up today feeling a little better, but still fatigued

Irvin

Irvin has not improved. However, he has not gotten worse. This isn’t great news, but it also isn’t terrible news. They have told us that they expect him to make a full recovery, but he does have a long road ahead. The latest analysis on his lungs is that he is in the early stages of that portion of COVID. It would appear that the more challenging days for Irvin are ahead. Please specifically pray for Irvin in this regard.

Friday

Irvin’s wife Judy received a positive COVID test result on Friday. However, her primary symptoms are fatigue. She is recovering in their home and in communication with her doctor and receiving support from the family.

Saturday

Irvin continues to receive care in the hospital. His oxygen levels are not stable when he isn’t receiving oxygen. Thus, he is being closely monitored and supported accordingly. Also, he is exhausted and minor tasks are very challenging for his energy and oxygen levels. He is still alert and fairly well considering the circumstances.

Our Team

All of the team members who were in direct contact with Irvin have received a negative COVID test result. Presently, no other team members or anyone else connected to the Baxters have had COVID symptoms.

Hello Endtime Family,

Over the weekend Irvin came down with an illness that was a bit more complicated than an average cold. It was bad enough to prevent him from attending an in-person church service at his home church. If you know Irvin and Judy, you know that is a very big deal — they don’t miss church services.

Monday

His condition worsened on Monday and he felt it would be wise to be tested for Coronavirus (COVID-19).

Tuesday

His conditions remained the same on Tuesday, but the exhaustion from the ongoing sickness became more evident. The Baxters received the positive test results in the evening and his oxygen levels were lower than they should’ve been. Thus, they felt like their next move should be for him to receive professional care at a hospital. He walked into the hospital without assistance and was alert and in full communication with us. They began a treatment plan almost immediately.

Our Team

Within an hour of finding out about Irvin’s positive test results we called the handful of team members who were in direct contact with Irvin since Saturday and informed them of the situation, asking them to quarantine immediately and take the proper steps to ensure that they are not sick as well. Also, we are encouraging our entire team to work from home for the next couple of weeks until we can properly assess our situation.

Wednesday

Irvin’s oxygen levels are back up today and he seems to be heading in the right direction at this point. He intends to remain in the hospital until he recovers.

Judy

Irvin’s wife Judy has been caring for him around the clock. However, to date she has not had any COVID symptoms.

End of the Age

Dave will cover hosting End of the Age until further notice. Per usual, you can watch our show live weekdays at 3:00 PM CT – click here. You can also watch any of our archived shows here.

Please Help Us

As you can imagine, with an announcement like this, we will begin receiving a greater amount of calls and emails than usual for information. Our team is incredible, but we do have limited resources to assist everyone that reaches out to us. Please help us by not calling or emailing about Irvin’s status. We will continue to provide updates on this page and Dave will share brief updates on End of the Age.

During an unprecedented time, we hold on to the sure promises of God. “He Himself has said, ‘I will never leave you nor forsake you.’ So we may boldly say: ‘The Lord is my helper; I will not fear…’” (Hebrews 13:5-6). We trust in God’s provision and protection as we continue to serve His Kingdom purposes in a world desperately in need of hope and grace.
