Several years ago we mentioned a Loron Christian lady who had a long-term illness, and we asked you to pray for her.
Over Christmas, Alice made a long trip to the south of Ivory Coast to visit some of her relatives on the coffee plantations. When she returned to the village she was very weak. Her family brought her to a hospital in Burkina Faso and we visited her there in March.
This evening, after trying to call the village for a couple of weeks from here in the UK, I was able to contact one of the believers by telephone. He told me that Alice passed away earlier this month.
We were very sad to hear that news, but we rejoice that she is now with the Saviour she loved and served, and she is no longer suffering.
We thank the Lord for the many years that Alice continued to serve in teaching Bible lessons to the boys and girls at children’s church, leading the ladies’ singing group, and helping with teaching literacy among the Loron people.
Please pray for her family.
