Fall Harvest and Heartache
This week, the Chin fellowship of FWC had two memorial services. Van Zel, whose baby we dedicated a couple of weeks ago lost his mother. She had suffered a prolonged illness in her Chin village and then passed away early this week. She is survived by her husband who still remains in Chin, Burma and several children around the world (Germanany, High Point, Rangoon and other parts of the Chin state).
Also Hlamay’s brother who had traveled to India to get into a hospital for treatment of a stomach condition, passed away. We memoralized him at a Saturday night fellowship meeting. We certainly share the grief of these families so many miles from their close relatives. Pray for God to comfort them. Although it brings heartache to lose loved ones it is a blessing to report that both of these individuals were believers in Christ.
Harvest – We planted Ceyenne peppers to share with our Burmese friends. We have had an abundant harvest, so we are picking a good portion every few days. They tell me that the good ones are really red, so I have been waiting to pick them in the red stage. The other day I saw a Burmese young man take a pepper and eat it like I might eat a carrot.
