a weekly blog of Lynn and Debby Edwards and their mission in Moldova

Jan 26 2016 This is a picture of 1/3 of the couples who we are with in the MTC. We are next to our dear friends, the Alstons, who are on our right. We have become very close. It has been a difficult 2 days as our mom, Verla Edwards, died on the morning of January 25 in the Bow Island Health Center. Many of these people here have been very supportive and sympathetic, and it would have been hard to manage this time without them. We have managed to do this as we knew Mom was going to die while we were gone and both she and Dad wanted us to know they wished us to serve the Lord on a mission. It is still very hard, but we take comfort in the fact she is now at peace. It is hard to express our thanks to the wonderful people who work in the Bow Island Health Center; for the incredible care they gave to both Mom and Dad during the last few weeks. They did more than we ever expected and were so kind to all of our family. We must especially mention Laurie Haynes, a dear family friend, who we were told was an angel to our Mom and Dad. We knew she would do no less. How grateful we are to be from a small country town with such exemplary care. We mourn, but know we have competent caring family who will look after Dad. Mom's funeral will be on Jan. 29, and we will have been in Moldova about 5 hours by then. We love her and revere her life and will carry on as she asked us to. It is our duty.
