Labstone… {we love you brother – always}

He fought the good fight. And this morning, Labstone Chanda went to be with Jesus. Please pray for Sarah and his three young, beautiful children. We will all miss him greatly. Most of our memories with Labstone are filled with belly-ache laughter. He left his job as a school teacher to take a risk with us in building schools, serving orphans and making a difference for the sake of the gospel. He opened his home to orphans with no place to call home. He loved them-and he loved us. He was a friend and brother…

He is survived by his wife Sarah and three children Georgiana, Natasha and Kapata…and 450 orphans at Wiphan Care Ministry.

“Life is fragile. Labstone was a good friend and a great man with a heart for the underprivileged and for God. His life impacted greatly hundreds of widows and orphans for God’s glory. In God’s economy, he lived a righteous life. He will be missed. His citizenship was not in Zambia or in this world. He is home now. I can’t wait for our reunion one day.” -Scott Bowen, Wiphan USA President

Oh I am so so sorry! My heart just breaks for his family and friends. Those sweet children. The Mother’s heart that grieves for the love of her life. Makes me cry.

I will be praying. And for you too!

Blessings, Naomi

Our hearts are with his family & all of the children who are feeling his loss. Praying for God to bring healing, peace, & JOY to break through the sadness. Praying for many hands to lift his wife & his hildren up during this time.

Oh gosh, I am so sorry to hear this. I had been keeping Labstone and his family in my prayers. May they find some understanding of God’s goodness in this, and rest in his peace.

his death has left me with much wonder and at the same time speachless. we shared the same floor building at INSURANCE HOUSE IN NDOLA and i used to insure most of his cars. a very cheerful person he was. and when i broke the news to my wife Priscilla she did not believe me, all said was ‘A CHEERFUL AND HELPFUL PERSON HE WAS’. I WILL DEFINATELY MISS HIM. MAY THE LORD CONTINUE TO PROTECT AND PROVIDE FOR HIS FAMILY.
