With hope in the resurrection, I share with you that Sr. Nora Adam, widow of Br. Lorenz Adam, passed away this morning, January 28 in Minneapolis, Minnesota, as a result of an aortic tear in her heart. The Adams served together both in the mission field and in congregations in the Northern Province. Nora and Lorenz served at the clinic in Ahuas, Honduras in the 1970’s. She was a member of the Lake Auburn Moravian Church in Victoria, Minnesota. I invite your prayers for her son Murray and his family in this time of grief and thanksgiving for a life well lived. Arrangements are not known at this time.
“Jesus, still lead on till our rest be won;
heav’nly leader, still direct us, still support, console, protect us,
till we safely stand in the promised land.” (MBW 799)
Lord of all life, we give you thanks for Nora’s long and faithful life, her godly example, and the many ways she blessed and encouraged us. Embrace her family as they grieve and assure them of our ongoing prayers of resurrection hope.
The Rev. Dr. Betsy Miller

Kelly Raiford, mother of Phil Railford, asks for prayers for the safety of her son (Phil), her pregnant daughter-in-law (Eunice) and grandson (Ian). Phil’s village in Mexico has been under attack resulting in the death of at least one person. At this time, she is not sure what the reason for the unrest and will be in search for more information this evening. Phil asked another missionary to get word to his parents to ask everyone to pray for safety and wisdom.
Please join in prayer for the Phil Raiford, Jr family; for their safety, the safety of their village, for courage of new believers, protection, and wisdom.
