Jay telephoned the bishop to say that his father died on Friday, 25 July, at 3 pm. He had been up and down, but the end came quickly and peacefully and he was surrounded by family and the larger church community in prayer. In his words to the bishop, Jay said that he was feeling a mixture of emotions, but that he was 'rejoicing in the resurrection'. The funeral looks like it will happen on Wednesday, 30 July. We will updated this notice when we get more information. Please pray for Jay, his mom and his sister as they mourn his loss.
