We just wanted to write to you and ask you guys to pray for our friends. I am sure you have had of their names - Samuel and Margaret. We asked you to pray for Samuel who had a brain hemorrhage some time back. God pulled him through but then this morning We received a call very early (3:50am) from Margaret informing as that their little baby John passed away. He was admitted in one of the local hospitals a few days ago after being diagnosed with dehydration and severe malaria.

Our hearts ache for Margaret and Samuel! Samuel is just recovering from several head surgeries and this has happened just a few days after they returned to their home here at coast.. I am sure this is very hard especially for Margaret. She was at hospital alone when John passed away and Samuel still hasn't arrived - please pray for her that God would give her supernatural strength!

Please pray for us as we look for ways to be there for them and to encourage and comfort them. We will be headed to hospital just as soon as the sun rises. Pray that God will use this incident to bring our church very close and to teach us to carry each others burden - Laughing with those who rejoice and mourning with those who mourn.

The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not be in want. He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, he restores my soul. He guides me in paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.

Thank you for being there!
