Death of the Rev'd James Ajak

It is with great sadness but with a certain hope in the Lord that I share that the Rev’d James Ajak passed away this morning. Please join with me in grieving the death of our brother, especially praying for his wife Rebecca and their children (including Grace, who was born three days ago). Please also be praying for the Sudanese community in Toowoomba (along with those further afield), as they grieve the loss of their minister. The funeral details are yet to be confirmed will be shared once they are. May he rest in peace and rise in glory.
