Last night our dear friend Gloria went to be with the Lord, after a long battle with cancer. She leaves behind a husband, Andres, and two small children, Hillary and Andres. Gloria was a wonderful person, and a beautiful addition to our small church family here in Panama. She will be deeply missed. We take comfort in knowing that she is now healed of her cancer, and resting in the arms of Christ. But please pray for her husband and her children, who have a long road of healing ahead as well.
Update: I just spoke with Pastor Bert, and he let me know that Gloria's husband, Andres, is amazed by the peace he has in his heart. He is confident that the Lord will carry them through this, and his eyes are focused on Christ! Praise the Lord!
