6/25 - ROBERT

It is with a heavy heart that I learned today that my beloved missionary friend in Mexico, Robert, has passed away.   He contracted COVID-19 and died on Sunday.   Robert was a man like no other our family had ever met.  He tirelessly took Bibles all over Mexico, going to remote locations to spread the Gospel. The last email we had from him in early June was that he was leaving for a remote location in southern Mexico and would be out of pocket for a week or two.  He was taking a load of Bibles and wanted to see if there was a church there.  I don't know if he found a church there, only that he became sick at some point on that trip.  He did go to a hospital, was diagnosed with COVID and then died there in the hospital.

Unless something happens with the peace process that I feel needs to be passed along quickly, I will take a few days to step away from the blog.  I loved this man dearly, and I will miss his godly wisdom and frequent encouragement.  I look forward to seeing my friend again someday.
