The Anglican Church in North American is saddened by the death of former Bishop Alpha Mohammed, who passed away on Monday, March 14. Bishop Mohammed, a converted Christian, led the Diocese of the Rift Valley (part of the Anglican Church of Tanzania) and was known for his evangelism through many church and diocesan plants. He was known to many in the worldwide Anglican movement. Please take a moment to ask our Lord to grant him eternal rest.
Into your hands, O merciful Savior, we commend your servant Bishop Alpha Mohammed. Acknowledge, we humbly beseech you, a sheep of your own fold, a lamb of your own flock, a sinner of your own redeeming. Receive him into the arms of your mercy, into the blessed rest of everlasting peace, and into the glorious company of the saints in light. Amen.
