If you read Life with Lynnie (LwL) yesterday, you'll know that I discussed Zachariah Anani. If you haven't read that LwL entry, please read yesterday's LwL entry.
Knowing I hadn't seen Zak in a very long time, I tried to make sure I could contact him. And, searched on internet to try and find him. I should let you know it was September 26th, 2016 when I did this.
I found out information about Zak.
I almost had heart failure when I read that he died July 4, 2016.
This was time when I was truly ill, and had returned home from hospital. At that time, I wasn't able to even write LwL blog entries, because I couldn't sit up at my computer. So, it's no wonder that I didn't find out that Zak had died.
I also wasn't able to drive, so I even though I didn't know that a memorial service was held on July 30th, here in Windsor, I couldn't have gone, unless I got a ride by someone.
Here is a link by Cape Gazette entitled, Zachariah 'Zak' Anani, fearless Christian: http://www.capegazette.com/article/zachariah-%E2%80%98zak%E2%80%99-anani-fearless-christian/114255.
If you read that article, you will have seen a photo of Zak, and read this information: Zachariah "Zak" Anani, 57, was called home suddenly by his Lord Jesus Monday, ,July 4, 2016, at the Toronto Airport, Canada as he was preparing to fly to minister in Egypt. When his luggage arrived without Zak, his brother contacted missing persons and he was discovered in his car in the airport parking lot.
Knowing that Zak was on in the process of flying to minister in Egypt, tells us that he was definitely doing work for God. For this, I praise him.
After all, it's important to do work for Him.
Just as we read, in 1 Corinthians 15:58, "Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord."
Yes, beloved brethren, we need to be stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.
It's so important to do work for our Lord.
Zak did. Very much.
So, I know he's in Heaven, being blessed in a special way... since he loved our Lord. And, was truly a Christian martyr.
Thank You, Lord... for having Zak as a friend and brother in the Lord, in part of my life.
Until next time...
