Subject: 18 year old Witness shot while on the Ministry
Dear Brothers & Sisters,
I'm sure most of you are aware of the tragic death of 18 year old
Brother Lenford Morris age 18 whose funeral was held yesterday.
He was shot while on the ministry.
This is an extract from an email I received yesterday from
a long time member of this group and a faithful sister:
If you have not already heard the sad news, one of our young brothers
was killed last week, May 5th, when multiple shots rang out and he was
hit by a stray bullet while out in field service.
18 yr old Lenford Morris, collapsed into his mothers arms after being
shot in the back. As shots were fired he rushed to his mother and his
sister telling them to get down!
Lenny, his mother and sister had just finished with a Bible
study and were leaving the residence when this horrible situation
occurred. This situation could have been so much worse had not a
car blocked other rounds.
The car was hit by 3 other bullets in the front of the car, while
sisters were in the back loading the trunk. The family stood firm on
the issue of no blood and the hospital team respected their wishes
and worked diligently to save Lenny with cell saver technology,
however, the injury was just too severe.
The family is very close to us. I studied with the father, who is now
a dedicated brother, and Pam studied with the mother to help her
revitalize herself spiritually..."
Thank you Wanda for sending me this.
