    Dear Brothers, I praise the Lord because he let me a live with his ministry in Lilavois after the earthquake. I’m so sorry to hear of Bro. Antonio Lara’s death. I hope peace be in his family because he leaves in Christ’s work. And may joy be to his wife’s heart to praise the Lord because God puts an end in his minister service in this land. Lilavois Church of Christ will not forget to pray for our Brothers in Salvador because we are one in Christ .
    Brotherly yours in Christ
