Israel

Israel Valcourt was laid to rest yesterday. The family could not afford to send the cadavre to a funeral home. They could not afford a casket nor new clothes for the funeral. We offered to make a casket for Israel and, as soon as it was done, a short funeral service was sung and he was buried. The family was invited to join us for Mass this morning where his classmates plan on eulogizing Israel and singing one of his favorite songs. Please continue to pray for the family.

Praying for the repose of the soul of Israel and for peace and comfort for his family.

Prayers as well for the Espwa community.
