Five deaths in four days

I was just realizing that there have been five deaths in my little world in Mozambique in the last four days. They weren't directly in my life. It wasn't my nephew, it was Tio Joao's. It wasn't my daughter, it was Pastor Andre's. It wasn't my classmate, it was Paito's. It wasn't my brother-in-law, it was Felipe's. It wasn't my mom, it was Abelo's. I can honestly say I am grateful I haven't lost any of those people directly in my life, but it is difficult to walk through that with others, especially in such a short time.
