I received a very sad call last night.  Renia died around midnight.   She was having difficulty breathing yesterday.  Her growth grew a lot in the past 2 weeks.  She called her mama and gave her a kiss and a hug just minutes before she died.  We are thankful that we were able to bring her body back here to Cazale and have a small service this afternoon.

A few of you wrote and wanted to know if there was anything you could do to help Renia or her mama.  She will be returning home within the next few days.  She has sold a lot of her material items and animals within the last several months.  These funds were used to care for her other 2 children while Renia and her mama were seeking medical care for the past several months.  Any amount of funds will be helpful for her to begin starting over with her 2 boys.  When she is ready to travel home we will have a staff member travel with her to get her home to her other family members.

We thank each of you that have given or prayed for Renia and her mama.  They appreciate it and have felt the prayers of many over these past few months.  Please continue to pray for Sonlange (her mama) as her heart is hurting so much right now.

    Please tell Renia’s momma that I’m praying for her and I’m so very sorry for her loss. Renia had just joy and light in her face. She was just beautiful. Thankyou for ministering to her and to her family.
