Joy and sadness

Yesterday was a busy day. The nursing school had twelve students this year that passed their final exams in September and graduation day was yesterday. I was invited and it was a great joy to see these twelve new nurses (male and female) enjoy the happenings.

Before the meal however, I heard sad news. One of the children of one of the workers on the mission station had died suddenly after a very short illness. He started this morning, after drinking a cup of tea with his dad, to vomit and had diarrhea. He died shortly after these signs started. He was only six years old. So a day of joy ended with the burial of this boy, called Emmanuel.

Ingbokolo and Adi are calm again. People have returned home. Still we need your prayers for security to return to the country of DR Congo.
