Please pray.

Today we lost Martin's Dad to cancer. Phillip has been fighting stage 4 cancer for 8 months and he fought well surprising the doctors and all of us. This afternoon the fight was over.
Please pray for Martin and his brother Richard and all of our family. Rich arrived at the hospital seconds too late and he is really finding this difficult, please pray for peace and an understanding our Father in all of this. Please pray for Mart as he is also finding it hard, even with the Peace of Christ. We are deciding when would be a good time for Martin to go back to the UK. We can not afford for us all to go so he wants to be here in South Africa with the children and I for Christmas and then travel after.
Phillip's wife Jan is also fighting cancer and is going through treatment. For her this is particularly hard and I am sure she is scared as well as being heart broken. We appreciate you lifting us up at this time.

Oh Vashti! I am so sorry for you and your husbands loss. I pray the God of all comfort will wrap your minds with peace that truly passes understanding as you wade through the grief process.

My prayers are with you.

Vashti - I am so sorry. I cannot imagine the loss, nor do I have words of wisdom. But I know the God who gives peace that passes human understanding and to him I pray. May he be with you all during this time.
