October 8

Today began with a phone call from Heather. Most phone calls from her have been pretty upbeat but this phone call was different. This phone call was bad news. A member of her Peace Corp group has died. She was discovered in her home in Zinder this morning. Heather has since traveled to Zinder and soon the members of her group will travel from their regions to be together. Sometime in the next few days they will hold a memorial service in Stephanie’s honor. Please keep this group in your prayers as they deal with the loss of a member of their Peace Corp family. Also please keep Stephanie’s family in your prayers. I cannot imagine what they are feeling right now.

The Peace Corp posted a story on their website. You can read about this amazing young women by clicking on this link.  http://www.peacecorps.gov/index.cfm?shell=resources.media.press.view&news_id=1621
