It is with great sorrow and grief that we inform you that sweet Peter Muthethia Muthoni has been called home to our Lord. He was 11 years old.
Peter suffered from Aids and its related complications. In recent weeks he had been in and out of the hospital. His latest hospitalization was December 17 at the Chuka General Hospital. He did not respond well to treatment and was unable to hold down food or medicine. This left him very weak. Since he could not be left alone Mama Phelistus, Mama Ellijoy, and Aunt Pauline had taken turns staying with him.
‘For I am already being poured out like a drink offering, and the time for my departure is near. I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day—and not only to me, but also to all who have longed for his appearing’.
2 Timothy 4:6-8
At 6:30pm December 18, 2017, Peter finished his race.
Peter leaves behind his brothers and sisters, the Kenya Connection Kids board and staff, and Ralph and Annice Yeary (his sponsors).
