Tim was an amazing young man with a fire in his belly to see every breathing human being come to a right relationship with Jesus Christ. His goal in life was not to be a better man but to be more like Christ in his everyday walk as he did life with others. What a hero.

To the family of PFC Bishop, I offer my sympathy and heart felt best wishes in the loss of your equally brave soldier.
