Thursday Evening, May 30th, Moses Lafon, one of the pastors in Cameroon, got sick and Friday morning he passed onto Glory. From the human perspective it was totally unexpected. His wife’s names is Blessing and they have a 3 year old and a 5 year old. Lang is a church in the far north west part of Cameroon and they have a large Christian school ministry. Please pray for the family and the church. – Craig Noyes
Please be praying for Pastor Moses’ family and
church as they go through this difficult time.
Below is a message from Pastor Afoni in Northwest Cameroon.
Dear brothers and sisters,
The whole fellowship of brethren churches in Cameroon are in deep sorrow at the passing away of Pastor Moses Lafon of Lang church. He has left behind a wife and two kids under the age of five. We thank the Lord for his life and ministry of winning souls . 1Thessalonians 4.13-18 is our comforter (see below). We intend to give him a befitting burial on behalf of all the brethrens in the world knowing that his soul is hidden in Christ Jesus. We shall continue to comfort and support the wife and kids in the best way possible.
Thanks for your prayers,
1 Thessalonians 4:13-18
13 But we do not want you to be uninformed, brethren, about those who are asleep,
so that you will not grieve as do the rest who have no hope.
14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so God
will bring with Him those who have fallen asleep in Jesus.
15 For this we say to you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive and remain until the
coming of the Lord, will not precede those who have fallen asleep.
16 For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel
and with the trumpet of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first.
17 Then we who are alive and remain will be caught up together with them in the clouds to
meet the Lord in the air, and so we shall always be with the Lord.
18 Therefore comfort one another with these words.
