Our Sweet Friend

20150730_151434It is with a broken heart that I share with you that our dear friend Elveson is now with the Lord.  He passed away this past Saturday.  Elveson didn’t have the easiest life here on earth, but now he is whole – no more pain, no more hardships.

I met Elveson during my first internship with NWHCM.  He came to the clinic with his mom.  Emma (also interning at the time) and I immediately connected with him.  We often comment on how it was God who brought him that day.  We were hoping to start a ministry with special needs children and did not know where to begin.  But on that day, he and his friend Claude came looking for us.  They became our first two students.  Over the next two years, we have come to know Elveson and his family well.  His home has been one of my favorite places to visit, and his laugher has filled our classroom. Some of Elveson’s favorite things were playing catch, kissing your cheek, playing with Fedna, music, and eating any delicious treat.  Elveson always loved to worship God.  He could wave his hands and cry out “Alleluia” with the best of them!  I thank God for the short time Elveson was a part of my life.  He will be greatly missed by all who knew him.

Thank you everyone who has come to love Elveson as much as I have.  Your visits and prayers have always encouraged his family.  Please keep Elveson’s mother and two brothers in your prayers.
