Paul Aggrey has died . . .

Dear Friends:

It is with sadness of heart and yet joy of spirit and hope of what is to come that I write asking for your prayers. It seems that Jesus has finished the house that He built for our brother, Paul Aggrey, and wanted him to come and occupy it now. I got a call from family yesterday that Paul died after being rushed to the Zorzor hospital. Paul is Dennis' younger brother in Konia. Those of you who have met him know that his whole life was committed to serving God, leading and teaching in the church, and loving the children of Konia. He was a teacher at Konia Christian Revival School, the evangelist for Dorzinelor Christian Revival Church, an active leader of morning devotions at Konia CRC, the leader for the Children's Saturday Bible Studies, and the overseer for some CRCA projects, including the rabbits. He was kind and gentle and well loved by those who knew him. He was young and had hopes and plans to attend African Bible College starting this summer.

Paul is now free from the sin, and pain, and suffering of this world. He is safe and happy. He is in the place that he was created for--Heaven, and with the One that he was created for--God! Rejoice with him!

The Aggrey family, the Christian Revival family, and the Konia community are suffering loss and pain as they try to understand and are missing a dear brother, teacher, son, "father", and friend. Truly only God can fill the gap that is left. Please pray for strength, encouragement, and great faith and hope. Dennis is still deep in Buluyema Forest and someone from Konia was sent to carry the news to him. Please ask God to comfort Dennis and to give him wisdom about what to do. Since he is the big brother of the family he will be the one to help coordinate details. Please also pray for the family members in Monrovia that will not be able to get to Konia. We will all be meeting at our house tonight for a time of prayer together. Please ask God that this time of prayer would be powerful and meaningful and would be used by the Holy Spirit to comfort and remind us of the truth--we Christians don't mourn like those who don't have hope.

Thank you for standing...and kneeling with us.

Standing on the promises of the Risen and Returning Savior...
Vania Aggrey, CRCA
