Death of the Mother of our Confrere Paul Namono


Paul NamonoI am deeply saddened to inform you that the Mother of our Confrere Paul Namono passed away this afternoon. As many of you know, Paul has already lost three relatives (two brothers and an uncle) in the past four months. It’s hard to find words to say to Paul. 
He will leave Malawi tomorrow for Burkina Faso.
May our hearts go out to him during this difficult time and our prayers serve as comfort to Paul and his loved ones.

Paul NamonoIt’s with great sadness that we announce the sudden death of another brother of our confrere Paul Namono. Mr Fernand Namono who is the elder brother to Paul passed on early this morning in Ouagadougou after a fall which led him into a coma on Wednesday. May he rest in peace. In the event that he gets a ticket Paul will be leaving for Burkina today. Paul, we hold you tight in our prayers in these most painful moments of your life.

Paul NamonoDear All,
At the moment Paul Namono is attending the Session for Confrères in their Second Term of Mission, in Kumasi, Ghana. 
Over the last few days, when Paul was on his way to the meeting, he sent us very sad news. Paul’s cousin Namono Bienvenu was in Form 4.  A month ago he complained of stomach pains but despite all the treatment he received it did not help and he passed away the 4th July and was buried on the 5th. Then yesterday Paul gave us news of the death of Namono Pele, his uncle and younger brother of his father.  Pele had lived in Ivory Cost for a long time.  Before leaving Lilongwe Paul phoned Pele and he did not mentioned anything about his sickness. Then when Paul was on his way to Kumasi he received a message from his sister that Pele was very sick. Two days later on the 9th July he died. 
Please let us remember Paul and his family in our prayers.  Maliro nkulirana!
May Bienvenu and Pele rest in peace.
Yours in Christ,
Bill Turnball, M.Afr
