Mama Ulumbi Shedrack Homegoing Fund

Philippians 3:20-21 But our citizenship is in heaven, and from it we await a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, who will transform our lowly body to be like his glorious body, by the power that enables him even to subject all things to himself

With intense grief, the family of Sophia Yona Luangisa and husband Mao Luangisa of Pelham, New York, is saddened to announce the sudden passing of Sophie’s mother, Mama Ulumbi Shedrack, in Tanzania on the morning of Friday January 12th, 2018.
