This afternoon we received some devastating news from Namwianga. Virginia Chuulu, a lovely young woman who served as my translator during Zambia Medical Mission, died in childbirth on Sunday. Her infant daughter survived, but Virginia succumbed after having an emergency C-section at the Zimba hospital (about 30 miles away from Namwianga).

In addition to the new baby, Virginia is survived by three other young daughters and her husband Barry who is a teacher at the secondary school. She will be greatly missed by all of us who were blessed by her vibrant personality and her loving spirit.

Please pray for Barry and the girls as they face the trying days ahead.
