Grieving yet rejoicing…..

Hi Everyone,

A brief update:  Leanne’s mom

This past Monday (May 13) Leanne was contacted by her sister in Saskatoon re her mom.  Mom’s health was deteriorating rapidly, and it was evident that she would soon be going home to be with her Saviour.  Leanne was able to get a flight on Wednesday, (May 15) and was able to be in Saskatoon by suppertime Wed night.

Leanne was able to spend 2 good days with her mom before her condition began to deteriorate.  This was such a blessing for Leanne and her mom, and we praise the Lord for that gift.

On Saturday (May 18) evening Mom went home to be with Christ.

We are sad, yet rejoicing for Mom is now with her Saviour, and she is free of the illness that has plagued her for so many years.  Again, we are reminded of the comforting words that Paul wrote in  1 Thess 4:13-18, for we do not grieve as those who have no hope, but we have hope in our risen Saviour.  This is the last one of our parents to go home, so we look forward with anticipation to someday seeing them all again.

Please pray for Leanne and her siblings as they go through the process of grieving and saying goodbye.

Thank you for standing with us

John
