Papua New Guinea: Lynn Mullins reported that Engambo, her first friend in PNG, had gone home to be with the Lord. Engambo sent them their first sweet potatoes to roast in the fire. Sometime later they learned that she was the witch doctor's wife. She was a great lady and the first of her clan to be saved. Her last words were that there was a man standing beside her; he said he had come to carry her across the river now. Her response, "Yes, let's go!"
South Africa: Lois Eubank's mother went home to be with the Lord on February 18th. Her mother was at church that morning and had been giving her testimony. She talked a lot about her life when she was younger, and how the Lord had saved her at a young age. She went on to tell how good the Lord had been to her all these years (she was 73) and how He had blessed her. She testified for a long time, just praising the Lord and giving Him the glory for all things. Then she looked at their pastor and said that if the Lord would come and take her right then, she was ready to go and be with Him. Then she sat down and took a deep breath, and went home to be with the Lord. Praise the Lord, what a way to go home!
