A Treasure Was Taken

On Saturday evening, December 26th at 10:45 PM, a treasure was called home. Sis. Nona Freeman, veteran missionary to Africa and one of the best-loved writers in Pentecost, at the age of 93, passed from this life peacefully at home with her family around her.

Sister Freeman and her husband, Rev, E. L. (Bug) Freeman, began their life in missions work in 1948 in South Africa. They left the United States with their five children ranging in ages from nine years to six months, and spent the next forty-one years in Africa.

Even after Brother Freeman's death in 1999, Sister Freeman continued to travel, preach and speak. She served the Lord in ministry for seventy years and has touched thousands of lives. Only eternity will truly know the far-reaching impact this great lady had.

Please be in prayer for the Freeman family during this difficult time.

"Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted. Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth. Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled. Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy. Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God. Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God."

Matthew 5:3-9
