Mulu's mother died unexpectedly

It is sad to report the unexpected death of Mulusew's mother, Etoyeh, in Ethiopia from natural causes Tuesday night (September 21, 2010).

Mulu's mother was like a mother to our mission when she was here. She went back to Ethiopia for a few months and had been looking forward to returning soon.

Mulusew and Muluken left promptly for Ethiopia to attend her funeral. They will return in two weeks. The boys are still here and plan on attending church this weekend.

Amma Etoyeh was a dear and sweet blessing to all of us and she will be missed. Our condolences and prayers are with the entire Mulu family.

We will be having the traditional third day memorial service for Amma Etoyeh on Friday evening, September 24, 2010, 6:00 PM, at the mission chapel.

The 40th Day will be on November 1st.

O Lord, may Etoyeh abide in the bosom of Abraham and Isaac and Jacob, where all the righteous dwell. And make her memory be eternal! May the entire Mulu family, and all who are grieved and in sorrow, be under the comforting shelter of Your wings. Amen+
