Although we know that the earthly death of a saint (Christian) is the beginning of eternal life, grief will present itself to those loved ones who remain.
Our women have endured much in the past few months with illness & loss. Just last week, the Native Praise Choir stood in support of a choir member, Ruth Walker, who lost her husband. Then, last Thursday (3/24/2016), we had to accept the devastating news that our beloved sister, Mary Silmon (Mississippi Choctaw) lost her battle with cancer. And, now as we prepare to bid her farewell, we receive news that our first Creek lead singer, Hattie Beaver, passed away just last night (3/26/2016), from complications from heart surgery.
Please pray for our Native Praise Choir in these days.
