Sono Harris Is With Jesus – Pray for the Harris family. “Today, July 4, 2010, at approximately 11pm, our dear mother, Sono Sato Harris, passed away and went to be with her Lord Jesus Christ. It was an entirely peaceful parting. Our family is grieving, and yet grieving as those who have hope because of Jesus’ death and resurrection for us. Goodnight, Mama.”

And it often lingers through the years, even after your children are grown and gone.”

Livingstone’s Lost Letter Deciphered – “The contents of an ‘indecipherable’ letter written by David Livingstone shortly before he met Henry Stanley have been revealed for the first time. The so-called Letter from Bambarre was scribbled by the Scottish explorer on torn-out book pages in February 1871.”
