I was saddened to receive this message July 15th from Bishop Moses Kobba Momoh of our partners in the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Sierra Leone.
“I write to inform you all about the sudden death of Rev. John J. Squire. He was a District Pastor, proprietor and Head Teacher of the Willie Hunt primary school.
He died on Saturday 14th July, 2019 at about 5:30 pm in Bo Government Hospital.”
When I visited the church in Sierra Leone last October I had the opportunity to meet with Pastor Squire and hear of the good work being done at the school. This school is named for the late Rev. Willie Hunt whose, along with his spouse Mrs. Laura Hunt, generosity and commitment to the ELCSL helped make the school possible.
Bishop Momoh is meeting with Pastor Squire’s family, and we will share more news as it is appropriate. Please keep Pastor Squire’s family and all of the ELCSL in prayer. #NTNL #ELCSL #InMissionTogether
