Update July 21, 2010

Many of you have met our Worship leader, Sherly and her husband, Rodolpho.  They are like our children, so precious to us!

On Sunday, Sherly’s Mother came to Church of Light.  She has come from time to time from her little religious church.  Though she had been a Christian for a long time, she never knew about life in the Holy Spirit.  About a month ago, ‘Mama Sherly’ received the baptism with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in tongues.  She was so excited and said to Sherly, “I pray in tongues now!’  She got so free! 

After the Sunday Night Miracle Service, she was running around the church!  She said,   ‘I’m not going back to my church again.  There is such life here!  I’m coming to your church from now on!’

On Monday morning, she had been out witnessing.  Then she began talking with Sherly’s brothers about dying.  She said ‘I don’t ever want to go to a hospital to suffer.  I just want to go.’  She told one son she had been saving a little money and where it was hidden, so, in case… he should know where it is!  To another who was backslidden, she said, “Get back to church!”  She was fine, just talking with her sons… 

Later in the day, Mama Sherly was making food, when suddenly she had severe pain in her stomach.  Her family left with her for the hospital.  On the way, she said ‘I’m going to die!’ and… she did, right then! 

Pray for Sherly’s family.  The funeral viewing will begin at 6:00 a.m. and the service at 7:00 a.m. on Saturday, before the heat of the day.  The last days have been spent finding a casket, burial site and planning a ‘Celebration’ service.  “Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His saints.”  

Pray for Sherly.  She is the only girl among four brothers.  They are looking to her for strength.  She is a strong, young woman who was close to her Mama!   

The family expects about 500 people at the funeral, many who are unsaved.  Terry will give a salvation message, and we believe many will give their hearts to Jesus Christ because of Mama Sherly’s Homegoing!  Pray!
