Mr. & Mrs. Davies and Wesleyan Religious Heads during Funeral Service
In her short testimony at the Funeral Service, Madam Margret Conteh who was the junior sister to the late woman told the congregation that the families appreciate the timely and Godly intervention of the Wesleyan Church since the late woman was taken to Freetown for treatment and that they as family will never forget such condolence.
She thanked religious leaders of the church for honoring her elder sister like any other dignified member in society and that God will certainly guide and protect them for giving clear testimonies to the gathering on behalf of the late woman who she said will rest in perfect peace.
According to the Host Reverend Alusine Kargbo on behalf of the Wesleyan Mission Kamakwie, said the Funeral Service was scheduled at the Wesleyan Church because the late woman belonged to the Wesleyan Church Kamakwie and that the Late Woman was a strong member of the Wesleyan Mission in Kamakwie, Karene District in the Northern Region of the country and also a role model for young people in that part and even beyond, during her lifetime.
Reverend Kargbo expressed sincere gratitude to the Davies and Conteh Family for the great loss noting that the late woman was blessed with brave children who will certainly replace their late mother in the mission due to the moral training, quality education and good behavior she has taught them when she was alive.
“Thank you for joining us to celebrate the life of a Mother, Grandmother, Sister, Cousin, Aunt and Friend. Marie Davies was one of the strongest loving and caring person we have ever known,” Rev.Kargbo testified. She will be deeply missed and it is so wonderful that you are here to help keep her memory alive” Said Reverend Kargbo.
He encouraged members of the family to take heart and that the loss of the late woman does not only affect the Davies and the Conteh families but also a lot of other young people across several villages at Kamakwie one, two and three.
He assured family members that Jesus will surely accommodate her in Heaven for her activeness in serving the lord diligently during her days.
Speaking on behalf of Local Church attendants, Sister Mabinty Mansaray said the death of Mrs. Marie Davies is a big loss to the Wesleyan Church in Kamakwie noting that the late woman was a true believer of God who loved to give her best for others.
She said Mrs. Davies played an exemplary role for the construction of the Wesleyan Headquarter Church of Sierra Leone, Kamakwie Branch and that only God can reward her for the good works which she have rendered to those communities.
In his key message at the Graveside, Reverend Usman J. Fornah admonished family members to take heart while he delivered the Burial Sentences, committal and Hymn-pass me not o gentle Saciour. He said Jesus is the only savior, true light, and answer for any mankind on planet earth and that Madam Davies will Rest in Perfect Peace (RIP).
“Pass me not o gentle Saviour, Hear my humble cry; while on others Thou art calling, do not pass me by,” Rev.Fornah noted. Let me at the throne of mercy Find a sweet relief; kneeling there in deep contrition, help my unbelief.
He assured the family and the rest of other well wishers that the late woman will receive reward for serving the lord diligently during her tenure.
The man of God blessed the burial service with spiritual songs while he commended residents of Kamakwie for been so supportive throughout the difficulty and sorrow moment of the Davies and Conteh Families at home and abroad.
