I received some very sad news today. Pictured above is one of the gogo's (grandmothers) I knew in Katlehong. She and another gogo lived together and were caring for 6 children. They were some of the hardest workers I knew. One day I showed up and saw corn growing around their shack. They were raising it to sell on the side of the street. Apparently, on Tuesday she and her granddaughter were crossing the railroad tracks and her foot got caught as a train came down the track. She was hit by the train and killed while her granddaughter watched. Please pray for this family! Pray that they would be comforted and pray for the children who are left behind. Pray for the granddaughter who saw it happened and is obviously traumatized. Pray that this will be an opportunity for the gospel to be shared!
