In Memory of my best friend; Roy Latumahina
1 May 1955 to 13 June 2007
Roy has been in heaven right now (June 13, 2007). I just back from his last sermon before tomorrow for funeral. As a friend and also a servant of God, I will give him a value better than Morris Cerullo or even Benny Hinn in term of character.
He never ask for help during our friendship or to other friends, but we help him by our will without his asking us to do. As a known God servant whom I ever meet, I saw Jesus's character are strong with him until his last time in this world. His served many people in jails, an usher, and many other things to help people full time.
A year before he passed away, a year he fought with cancer, He always praise God and thankful to God, always rejoice in God. He continue to send sms to motivate us, until his health so decreased he stop to send the sms to us. Last time I meet him two before he went to heaven, in very weak body condition he still able to do to motivate other people, including me.
Some sms (short messages services) from Roy during his battle against cancer (last stages) were:
