Missionary for the Congo

My sister and I were raised by 2 hard working parents that loved us unconditionally. In 1994 the Lord called them to be missionaries to the Congo. For the next 2 years they travelled the U.S. and raised the required support needed to stay in Africa. In 1996 they said goodbye to family and kids but we new this is where God wanted them to be. For almost 15 years they preached and discipled to the people of the Congo. The people of the country loved my parents as there own and called them Papa Frank and Momma Judy. After some serious health issues for dad my parents had to retire from the field and come home and finally got to spend time with there kids and grandkids. Around 2014 my dad was diagnosed with Parkinsons. It was hard to hear that but we knew the Lord was in control. Over the next several years his health declined really bad.  Hospice has been called in and now we are faced with the reality that the time is coming close for him to head home. It is hard to acceopt the fact that this is happening but we know we will see him again soon. We are asking if anyone would be able to help with the funereal expenses that will be required to give our dad a proper burial. We would like for him to be honored for the work he did in the Congo and for the churches here in the states where had a part in starting and helping them grow. Any money sent will be used only for the funeral and any expenses my mom has incurred for the care of my dad.
