A couple of weeks ago, we introduced you on this blog to the Shikongo family. We have also shared about them in our last two newsletters. Last night we heard the sad news that Margret Shikongo passed away. As is social norm in our community, the funeral services started on Wednesday and will continue on through Saturday.
We have been meeting each week to study the Bible in the home of Margret and her husband, Abraham. We have been so impressed and encouraged by the faith and love that we see in this family. This was especially evident in Margret, who showed a genuine desire to know Christ and for her family to learn to follow Him.
Please pray for comfort for the Shikongo family as she left behind a husband, four daughters and a brother. Also pray that their home will continue to be a light of hope for their community.
