    Something is going on with our Kenyan people and it something that needs to be taken care of. I think we have a lot on our minds that our friends do not know. This is just sad. RIP Jane Ngatia.

    Jane is no longer with us. She loved her Saviour, the One who died for her. Now she is in His presence, where there is fulness of joy. Let us take her example. She was an evangelist and was not ashame of the gospel of Christ. Jesus said,I am the resurrection and the life. He that believeth in Me shall never die. Jane is alive and well.
    Thank God we will see Jane some day. Jesus, Thank you for making a home in heaven for those who believed.
    Do you want to see Jane Ngatia, then take hold of the Gospel of Christ, see yourself as helpless in need of the Saviour. Ask Jesus to come and transform your life, and give you a new heart and a transformed kife. Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be saved. When you leave this life, and you have made your peace with God, Jane will be there to welcome you with her Saviour.

    To Mr.Ben Ngatia and Rev.Mrs.Jemmimah Ngatia

    This is very hard for us to believe especially knowing that Jane had paid us a visit here in Baltimore not long ago. It looks like yesterday when she bid us goodbye and requested that we pay back her visit by coming to St.Louis.

    Can there be St.Louis without Jane? God knew we would never see her again and little did we know too that our visit to St.Louis will be without Jane.

    Hard as it sounds, we must brave our selves to tell Ben and Jemmimah to accept the inevitable and thank God for the few years Jane lived amongst us. I personally hope and believe Jane is in Good hands of the Lord she Praised every day. That she be happy and fulfilled where ever she.We have great hope of seeing her again when our time comes.

    Praise the Name of The lord the Giver who takes when the time comes for one of us to Go. Bye Jane but you will live in your hearts and memories for ever.

    am shocked to learn of Jane’s demise, she happens to be a 1st cousin of mine. Am however encouraged that she has gone to be with her maker. For uncle Ben and family, may God grant you peace and comfort in this difficult time.

    On behalf of P.C.E.A Bahati Youth Fellowship where the Late Jane Ngatia was a member in the 80’s, I wish to say poleni sana to Mr and Rev. Mrs Jemmimah Ngatia and family. May the Lord comfort you, guide and grant you peace. May Jane’s soul rest in everlasting peace and joy till we meet at Jesus feet. God bless you all.
