This is going to be short.
I forgot to tell you the exact—and very inspiring—way Tita Neneng died.
(And just in case you haven’t read about her fantastic life, click here.)
Her death was as dramatically beautiful as her life. Here’s how it happened.
The Monday morning she died, she led worship in Anawim, our home for the abandoned elderly. And the last song she sang was a song I composed, entitled Draw Me. Here are the lyrics (Reading them gives me the chills!).
Draw me now closer to thy throne,
Take me near to receive thy mercy,
Draw me deep into thy presence,
Oh lift my soul higher and higher…
Higher, draw my soul higher,
To thy throne where I will rest…
After worship, she should have rested—because Monday was her day off.
But this 83-year old woman insisted on orienting the new batch of caregivers.
At the end of her orientation, she closed her eyes, her head falling to the side. And that was it. The Anawim staff rushed her to the hospital, but even in the van, they could no longer find her pulse.
For the longest time, Tita Neneng would tell me, “Brother Bo, I want to die on active duty for the Lord.” And God granted that request. To the letter.
I don’t know about you, but that’s how I want to die.
Peaceful. Quick. Painless. And with my boots on—serving the Lord!
May your dream come true,
PS. Tita Neneng was my Early Financial Mentor. She was a successful businesswoman who earned lots of money—but chose to live a simple life so she could give to our ministry. She was Truly Rich!
