NEDSON ZULU ENTERS CHURCH TRIUMPHANT

 Nedson loved the work he led in Tete Province. He served with great joy, and he taught many here and there about the fullness of the Gospel and God’s mission. Nedson focused on training leaders and building the capacity of others for ministry. His devotion to the Lord was inspiring. As Outreach trustee Berry Long wrote, “May the Holy Spirit comfort all those who are grieving over Nedson's death. I know that Nedson's life offered praise and honor to our God, and I know that Heaven is rejoicing at his entry. I can hear the words, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant.’"
