The Passing of Two Heroines of the Faith
Psalm 116:15 "Precious in the sight of the Lord
is the death of his faithful servants."
Sandy Mann, a disciple in May Pen, succumbed to her battle with cancer on February 28.
Sandy was a faithful disciple from the 1980's. She was baptized as a campus student, and joined the fledgeling mission team in May Pen soon after graduation. She became a key figure in the church in that town, and was integral in the spiritual stability and growth of the church.
She was a loving wife, to Nigel, and a caring mother to David. She also made a positive impact in the classroom and contributed to maintaining a high academic standard at a key secondary level institution.
Her legacy will exist in many ways in the lives which she impacted by her love and faithfulness shown in the kingdom of God and in the classroom. She will be missed here, but will add to the celebration in paradise.
Mitzie Walker's passing has come very unexpectedly and has left all of us in shock. Simone is very distraught as Mitzie was her very dear friend. She and Paul were wonderful companions to us on the mission field in Montego Bay in the 1990s, and have remained close friends since then.
I am saddened by the reality of the grief that her passing has created in her home as Mitzie was a fantastic wife, mother, and daughter-in-law. She was also a hard and fruitful worker for the Lord. She was reliable and was active in many church functions including Women's Days, Teen Camp, Zone & Family Group Leadership, and so much more.
I am comforted by the thought that her last day with us was her first day in paradise. She is with the saints who have gone on before. Let us keep Paul & Jordan in our prayers.
