Announcing her death he penned
IT IS WITH DEEP SADNESS THAT I ANNOUNCE THE PASSING ON OF MY DAUGHTER, ISRAELLA BUSHIRI.
AS A FATHER IT WAS MY DESIRE TO SEE HER GROW AND SERVE THE LORD, HOWEVER, THE WILL OF GOD WAS FOR HER TO RETURN BACK TO HIM. ISRAELLA WAS BORN DURING A TIME WHEN MY WIFE AND I WERE GOING THROUGH GREAT PERSECUTION, AND SHE HAS LIVED HER LIFE WITNESSING WHAT IT MEANS TO FIGHT AND LABOUR FOR THE LORD DESPITE TRIALS AND BATTLES. SHE CAME AT A TIME WHEN WE REALLY NEEDED HER AND THROUGH IT ALL, SHE OFFERED MY WIFE AND I, INCLUDING THE ENTIRE CHURCH GREAT COMFORT AND ENLIGHTENMENT.
WE ARE A CHURCH BUILT ON FAITH AND IF WE AREN’T CAREFUL TO OBSERVE THE WAYS OF THE LORD, WE CAN MISTAKE GOD’S WILL FOR GOD’S PUNISHMENT.
IF THINGS COULD BE REVERSED WE WOULD HAVE DESIRED IT TO BE SO. HOWEVER, THE WILL OF THE LORD IS ABOVE OUR DESIRES. WE HAVE EXPERIENCED IT AND HAVE ACCEPTED IT,’ BUSHIRI WROTE IN PART ANNOUNCING THE DEATH OF HIS DAUGHTER.
