MoiseIt is with grief and a heavy heart that I send this news story today to the FCA:

One of our own FCA pastors has gone home to the Lord — very heart wrenching.  Moise (Moses) Mamy, who was Jon & Anna Erickson’s long time partner in ministry in Guinea, West Africa, was martyred this week while teaching people how to avoid getting Ebola (see the Fox News story here).

Please pray for his family.  His wife, Nowai, and his children: Jacques, Amos, Enoch, Emanuel and Marie.  The first three are married with babies or very young children.  They have just been told this morning.  Pray especially for Amos, who along with his wife and baby are in Ivory Coast attending seminary.  Because of Ebola, the border with Ivory Coast is closed for entry.  Please pray that they are able to easily leave there.

Moise had been to our FCA Convention in Minneapolis a few years back and was a part of the FCA in Africa. I was there last June to visit Jon and Moise to see the great work they were and are doing in Guinea. I met his whole family and saw the love of Jesus radiating out of them. Together Jon and Moise built a medical clinic, three schools and planted 20 churches among the Mano people. He will be greatly missed!

We are taking donations to help Moise’s family through this hard time – currently Jon and Anna Erickson are home on leave and out on the U.S. West Coast, so please pray for them through this great loss and time of grief as well. If you would like to help the family please send donations to Christian Hills Church 9001 West 159th Street, Orland Hills IL. 60487.
