My sincere condolences to the family in the death of my dear friend and former colleague in Nigeria. She was a gracious host both in Mkar & GR. Her love for the people she worked with was very evident. I am so thankful to have known her as a faithful servant of our Lord and Saviour. May you cherish the memories.
