Faithful believer goes home

Libanya died, affecting the whole village.

As Libanya lie on his deathbed, he told missionaries Gene and Carol Trudeau that he was looking forward to going home.

Libanya, a Manobo man, was a strong believer for many years. He even taught Firm Foundation Bible lessons from memory since he could not read.

“He had a fantastic mind and probably never forgot anything he was taught from God's Word,” wrote Gene Trudeau. “He was a greatly beloved man.”

He had a wife, a teenage son, two blind daughters and two young children who will sincerely miss their kind father, teacher and caretaker.

Libanya pointed his hand toward the sky and said, “I’m going – there,” with that he left his earthly body and joined the Lord he loved for so long.

Pray for Libanya's family and for the missionaries who will miss an able co-worker.
