This is the second blog entry that I have written, and I wish that I were not writing this at all because the circumstances are truly sad.

Last week one of our very own Scholarship students passed away due to medical complications with his kidney. Jhannell was such a quiet and sweet boy. He graduated from the Sonshine Learning Center preschool in March and had started first grade in June. He was seven years old.

We mourn with his family, but we can rejoice for him because now he is in a place where God “will wipe away every tear from his eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain.” (Revelation 21:4)

From one of the songs we often sing at the Sonshine Center:

“Come and go with me to My Father’s house
Come and go with my to my Father’s house
There’s a big, big house with lots and lots of room,
There’s a big, big table with lots and lots of food,
There’s a big, big yard where we can play football,
There’s a big, big house, it’s my Father’s house.”

He is no longer singing about this, Jhannell is now experiencing it firsthand.
