February 1 Update

One of our dear saints passed away last week.  Kadriye had called us to come preach the gospel to her about four years ago.  She had been diagnosed with cancer, been operated on, and then refused chemotherapy after her first treatment.  The doctors told her there was nothing left for them to do.  Her sister-in-law has a church in her village, and she had told her about the Lord and the church.  So, Kadriye figured she had better set her house in order, and called us to come preach to her.  She gave her heart to the Lord that night; the rest of her family soon followed.  In the weeks and months that followed she saw the doctor again several times, and he was always amazed at her improved health.  He also heard that it was Jesus who was responsible for it.  Last year she had a severe stroke, then later, cancer came back.  When I saw her last week her body was mangled, but the few words she spoke were kind.  But that was last week.  This week the scripture has come to pass, "...Verily I say unto thee, To day shalt thou be with me in paradise".

Please pray for her family, especially her husband.
