Remembering Nurse Nkosi

Picture

With great sadness in our hearts we share the news that our sister Nurse Nkosi has departed this life to be with the Lord. While it is a comfort to know that her life was a testimony of faith in our gracious God, the entire Mukhanyo still mourns this loss with heavy hearts.

Nurse Nkosi, Mukhanyo’s librarian, died on 27 February after struggling with health for a long time. A few days later the staff and students of Mukhanyo at KwaMhlanga held a memorial service in remembrance of her, also praying for her husband Themba, her daughter and family. A large number of Mukhanyo staff were also able to attend the funeral the next day. Please pray with us for her family as they dearly miss a wife and mother.

The service at Mukhanyo was led by Rev. Isaac Maleke, Mukhanyo’s Dean of Students, who preached from Luke 12:13-21 where Jesus warns that God can take away life at any time: “We must be rich in God, ready to die anytime, as we believe Nurse was”.

Nurse served at Mukhanyo for three years during a time when the library collections expanded tremendously after Mukhanyo received two large shipments of theology books.
