Mingo Update

We just wanted to let you know that Mingo passed away this morning. He is the member of our church that we had been praying for since March. We received a phone call around 7:30 am and have been with the family most of the day.

He was on a waiting list for a liver transplant in Argentina and money had been donated to pay for travel expenses. He had been in and out of the hospital during these past 8 months, but always came through.

The family told us that last night he was fine. He was at home with his family talking and having a good time. He woke up around 3:00 am to get a drink of water and told his mother that he was not feeling well. She called an ambulance, but he had passed away before it arrived.

Thank you for your prayers for Mingo and his family. Please continue praying. His mother had been filled with so much hope and expectations and is now having a really hard time. His death really took all of us by surprise. He was only 19 years old. We do, however, take comfort in the knowledge that he is no longer suffering, is in heaven and that we will see him again someday.

The funeral and burial will be tomorrow morning at 7:30 am. We are praying that many will come and will desire a relationship with Jesus through hearing the testimony of Mingo's life.
