The daily treks into Fayetteville to visit Prit’s mom in the hospital have now come to an end. Lucia Andrews Adams gained her independence this 4th of July. Lucy fought a long, hard fight which stretched back over 1 1/2 years. Repeated trips to hospitals, rehabs, and then back home resembled a revolving door until her exhausted and frail body finally said “Enough!” On Thursday night, her immediate family with their spouses gathered around her bed. We prayed, shared memories together, and thanked her for what she meant to us. Finally, one by one, we released her to the Lord. On Friday morning, she closed her eyes for the last time putting off her corruptible body for an incorruptible one.
It is the end of an era. P.G. and Lucy both lived sacrificial lives. When most retirees were enjoying their golden years, Prit’s parents were juggling Rehoboth Ministries’ finances and shipping boxes to Haiti. P.G. and Lucy counted it all joy to do the Lord’s work and Haiti never had two more devoted fans.
Since the army had moved them 27 times over a span of 30 years, Prit’s parents were done with traveling. Their joy consisted of spending time with family members and being heavily involved with their church family at Northwood Temple.
July 4th will be a day of remembrance for the Adams family for more reasons than one. Most of our readers know that on July 4, 2010, Prit suffered a brain aneurysm. Two days later, a second one almost took his life. With God’s help and the prayers of countless intercessors, he not only survived, but is still doing the work of the ministry today.
We salute you, P.G. and Lucy, for a life well lived.
