In Memory of Jeanne (death mentioned)

Some of you followed updates on my FB about our friends who are missionaries in Haiti. Jack and Jeanne were in a building that collapsed in Port au Prince. Jack was pulled out of the rubble after 6 hours, Jeanne was never found. She and two other missionaries died in the earthquake. My heart continues to grieve for my friend Jeanne and it aches for what Jack is going through. Today as I sat at my desk at work, the tears just poured when another church worker came back from Haiti and shared this picture. I worked on this page late tonight so that my poor DH wouldn't see me crying. But here is the first of what will probably be several pages about Jeanne. It's scrap therapy.

"goodbye Pastor Jeanny ... thy soul rest in peace" is a translation of what is written on the wall of the building where she died.

The kit is from Scrap Orchard. It's called One Love and it's a charity collab that benefits Haiti. It seemed appropriate to use. The font is from dafont and it's called Sunshine in my Soul.

Wow, this gives me chills. That's all I can say about it.

And although I don't normally buy kits I may consider purchasing that one. I saw it on ScrapOrchard after yall mentioned that site.

Thank you for sharing this layout.

I'll be praying for you, for Jeanne's family and the lives she touched. May God continue to use her flame of faith to reach many others after this tragedy.

I couldn't say it any better. This is such a touching layout and a very nice memorial to someone who seems like an incredible woman.

I'm so sorry for your loss. I think that your layout is beautiful, and that the scrap therapy is very appropriate here. I wish I could give you a hug in person, I know you need it.

Charys' words are perfect, I couldn't say it any better than she did. Maybe you can talk about the flame of faith in another Jeanne layout.

It breaks my heart to think of that poor place. God Bless all those poor souls who were lost or who lost someone near and dear to them. I'm so saddened to hear of your missionary friend Beth. May God give peace to her husband and family that only He can give. How truly tragic. I know that someone with such a passion for the Lord was well welcomed into Heaven. Her work I'm sure was never in vain. God Bless those who serve the Lord in missions!

What a beautiful testimony to her that you have created.
