In these days we have been through something really distressing: a young woman from our school passed away on Friday the 10th of February!
Lilas was 18 years old. She was one of the first to enroll in our Secondary school back in 2007.
You can see her in the picture above, wearing a white top with red flowers. On that day, last June, she celebrated her graduation to BC (something like our Middle school diploma, it’s a difficult exam between Secondary School and last 3 years of College).

Lilas was born in the small village of Beboura (Paoua), she was an orphan and she had moved into Bossemptele in order to study.
As she was getting good grades, she also got in our  Secondary school, the school we recently  built, which we have extensively spoken about. Lilas became a good student of First year. She was as beautiful as her age dancing as light as a butterfly….

Her life stopped, after a malpracticed attempt for abortion, during which 2 apprentice doctors caused her several ruptures in the uterus and intestine. The surgeon tried to intervene with another 5 hours surgery, however she went into irreversible coma and  the 10th of February her heart stopped….

Friday morning, at 5 am on my way to church, I heard screaming and crying. I asked around what was going on and they told me Lilas was dead! I cried!

Of course we organized her funeral and all the other stuff. The church was filled to the brim! All the students from our school, other youths and adults came over to pay their respect

I wonder how is it possible to have a funeral of a young woman of 18 ? We want to be in church to celebrate, not for mourning….
Let us pray for this seed, which suffered so much for its mistake, furthermore for the stupidity of the people who took advantage of it and for those who caused this terrible damage in the abortion surgery…let’s pray to bear fruit of coherence and careful consideration on Life, Love and Body
