We went with 6 staff to the burial of Gabdesia. Over the phone we had contact with the family and we heard that they didn't have a coffin. So we told them that we would come with a coffin from Soroti. We got a coffin which was already made, but it was too long, so they made it smaller while we were waiting. the coffin fitted in the car, so we drove to their village (about one hour). When we arrived, we found them already started. They were all sitting under a big tree, near the house, in the middle was a bed, with the body of Gabdesia on it. People were sitting around it, singing, praying, crying. They gave us a space and we put the coffin there. A bit later, they laid Gabdesia in the coffin and they went on with their little service.
Gabdesia, thank you for staying with us, thank you for your smile and your sense of humor. I know you will enjoy your eternal life with the Father!!
Until we meet again!!
