I have shared here before about my friend who is my hero and her daughter, Emma, (also a hero of mine and one of my favorite missionaries). :) I just love these ladies and look forward to meeting them one day!
Emma had a friend, Alicia:

Alicia had cystic fibrosis. Terminal in the best circumstances. But she chose to be obedient to God's call and went to Africa as a short term missionary. Knowing the risks.
She went to be with Jesus on Tuesday, at just 23 years old.
I did not know her at all, but I am inspired by her and I want her story told- it deserves to be known!
Here is my friend, Linny's post, and here is a link to Alicia's blog- she requested that her sister do a post after she died.
Let's be obedient to God's calling- regardless the risk! Alicia was an amazing example, and now she gets to hear Jesus say, "Well done, good and faithful servant!"
