Elijah was carried by the angels to be with his Jesus on Saturday afternoon or evening.
Doctors aren’t sure what happened, he was moving Saturday morning but when Isaac checked for a heartbeat in the evening there was none. Ultrasound confirmed death in utero.
We don’t know why he died but we are grateful for the 40 weeks that we had with our precious son. We are so grateful to God for all his blessings and that Elijah was such a part of our family for that time.
Life Verse: Psalms 139:14-16 “I praise you because I’m fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book…”
Elijah- The Lord is Yahweh
Mahoro-Shalom of God (Burundi’s Language, where Isaac and I met)
Mubezi-The Lord is my comforter (Isaac’s mother tongue)
Favorite Moment: Family prayer time Elijah would kick and play as we prayed.
Character: My precious one listened and obeyed every time I told him not to kick mommy.
Parent’s Prayer: Every day we prayed for Elijah’s life: that he would grow to know the Lord and reach many with the gospel, that his love for the Lord and passion for Christ would change his generation.
