Bereavement Notice

Father, we thank you for your loving arms of comfort during this time of loss in the life of our bereaved WIM Sister. We are grateful that you comfort us in all our tribulation.  Thank you for comforting our hearts.  We know that we can cast every care on you because you care for us. O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? We are confident that to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord.  Father, we thank you for your grace to get through the sorrow of our loss. In Jesus name. Amen.
