Parents expressed their sorrow

Sarah, a victim of the bus accident, was in the group from Mount Zion Baptist Church in Huntsville, Alabama. She got into the bus crash which was heading to the airport for her trip to Africa.

Her mother said that Sarah had been writing her final paragraphs for the journal on the bus before that accident happened. So, Sarah's mother wanted to share her daughter's thoughts with the people who came on Thursday evening to the sanctuary of the Kingdom of God Church, reading that very entry aloud.

In that entry Sarah mentioned that her mood was quite bad, as she was going to spend much time in another place, that's why she felt uncomfortable. To feel better she decided to read her Bible, prayed and chose 1 Peter 5 and 2 Peter 1 for reading. The words from Holy Scriptures that she was reading really applied to her: she treated her little friends in Botswana as a flock entrusted to her by God and understood the importance to watch over them.
