Johanese Baun, CRC System Administrator and Mission Liaison Officer
I saw you yesterday and I never thought it will be my last. If only I knew it was our last meeting together, I should have spent more time with you. We spoke and laughed about something personal which left me looking at your radiant smile as you drove off. You have been such a great mentor to many. Despite being the Bishop of the UMC Conference, you have always stooped down to us all showing us what humility is. You left us broken with all the good plans you have for us.
I know I'm not supposed to ask, but only you have the answer God; why do good people have to die so sudden? I don't understand, but I do understand that's why I need you, that's why I run into your arms. 'Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened and I will give you rest.' Mathew 11:2 says.
To God be the glory. You will forever be missed by our UMC Family, the Yambasu Family, the CRC family, friends and colleagues. And you will live forever in my heart. Rest in peace, my mentor Bishop John K. Yambasu.
