The passing away of sister Jovita has brought us all a mixed emotion—grief and joy. Grief because we have lost a person who was so loving and caring not only to her family but also to other brethren who needed her help. Joy, because she died active in her most beloved duty as a deaconess and in upholding her faith. She is a true Christian who followed and defended the truth unmindful of what others might think, say and do to her. May our Lord God comfort you in your period of bereavement. Our condolences.
“Here is the patience of the saints; here are those who keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus. Then I heard a voice from heaven saying to me, ‘Write: “Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on.”’ “Yes,” says the Spirit, ‘that they may rest from their labors, and their works follow them.’” (Rev. 14:12-13)
“For I am already being poured out as a drink offering, and the time of my departure is at hand. I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Finally, there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge will give to me on that Day, and not to me only but also to all who have loved His appearing.” (II Tim. 4:6-8)
