Ngo Ba Nhan
September 11, 2019
I was blessed to meet Mr. and Mrs. Ngo at the car rental center in Las Vegas on that fateful day.
This awesome couple has left a lasting impression that has changed my life Forever!
Nhan and Anh were so happy to be celebrating their 20th anniversary in Las Vegas.
They were here with Anhs parents to fulfill their dream of seeing the Grand Canyon.
I called "next customer" and these beautiful people came up Happy and smiling. Anh dancing and filled with joy.
I welcomed them, and this amazing loving couple was actually concerned about me and my work load.
Highly unusual in this day and age.
They were immediately special to me as we spoke, laughed and shared their plans for the week. We finished the transaction and off they went.
No one could have known what would happen next, within moments we would be forever changed.
Before Nhan could get on the road the Lord would be calling him home.
God said to Nhan well done my good and faithful servant this is your day to behold the kingdom of heaven.
It's with heavy hearts we must trust the Lord and Lean not on our own understanding.
For His ways are not our ways.
In times that make no sense I try to find a glimmer of God's grace and mercy. I would say in that moment, I'm grateful Mr. Ngo was very happy, he didn't suffer, and he wasn't already on the road.
Seems little comfort.
I pray your beautiful family draws comfort in Jesus. May he give you heavenly peace that transcends understanding. I pray you find rest for your soul in the good news of the gospel and eternal life.
Jesus said, In my Father's house there are many mansions, if it were not so I would not tell you this. I will go and prepare a place for you. Mr. Ngo was blessed with a beautiful heart and family.
Anh will forever be my friend for life. We share a bond that will never be broken.
God has brought us together in His love.
My prayers are with you and your family always.
My sincerest condolences,
September 10, 2019
Always in my heart.
