A recent letter from K and K* reads “We are grieved to inform you that our one local Brother that we have spoken of and shared about often, succumbed very suddenly to his deteriorating health condition and went to be in his eternal Home. The last months of his life were spent in the most intense persecution that he had faced in his five years of following the Messiah… persecution from his family and from the government left him physically weaker than ever, but he passed away determined to live for Him and declare His Story to his fellow North Africans. ‘John’, in his mid-20’s, was a fun-loving friend to our family, a Brother in Christ and, for us, a neighbour. We traveled many hours to be in his home village to partake in some of the three-day funeral, and now that his mother and two siblings are back in our city, I have and will continue to go often to sit with them during the 40-day period that is set aside for mourning. Please prey for these interactions. These are sacred spaces to walk in with people and we do not take the privilege nor the responsibility lightly.”
