A few hours before the New Year approached in Europe, we received a call that Jeff’s mom had passed away. New Years Eve was a sad night for us. She had been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s just three and a half years ago, and passed away as a result of the disease. She was 85 years old.
Jeff’s mom was a follower of Jesus, and it gives us joy to know that she is in heaven with Him. She is completely healed and reunited with loved ones that have gone on before her. While we can take comfort knowing we will see her again, the loss of family members is difficult.
Please be praying for us as well as Jeff’s family. Here are two specific prayer requests:
- For safe travel for Jeff out to California as well as for his brother who is coming in from Japan.
- For everyone to feel the presence of Jesus and his comfort as they grieve.
