Ingrid Reneau, our missionary in South Sudan, sent the following message yesterday. Please keep her family in your prayers.
Just a quick note to let you know my father passed away this morning after a long battle with bone cancer. Mom was by his side.
I will fly into Oakland, CA by Saturday.
Please pray that the Lord will embrace my mother with His loving arms, filling her heart with comfort and a peace that passes understanding. Also pray for my sisters and the rest of my family in their sorrow.
I also ask for your prayers regarding my trip home, that God will strengthen and sustain me as a torrent of emotions are swirling within. Pray that the Lord will use me as a channel of His love, comfort, and blessing while visiting my family.
I so much appreciate your prayers,
