It is with a heavy heart we inform you of the death of our dear friend 13 year old Daylight student Nancy Chepoisho.
Nancy was a warm and wonderful young woman who brought much joy to her friends, family, and classmates. She passed last week in the night, after having a slight fever before bed. It is unclear what disease caused her death, but all too often it is like that here in rural Kenya.
The whole community, the staff, and children of Daylight gathered nearby to bury Nancy and pay their respects to her family. It was a beautiful time of coming together for the family and sharing stories about Nancy.
We know that the children, especially the 4th graders, are mourning her loss. Many of them have already lost so many family members and friends. Please keep the children and staff in your thoughts and prayers. Children who have seen so much tragedy often remember other traumatic events after a death and it can be so challenging for them.
Even the angels in heaven are surely weeping for these children, but now we trust Nancy to God’s good care.
