The obituary for Rev. Stephen Mugabi

OBITUARY - Stephen Mugabi, The Late Leader of the AEA Relief and Development Commission

It is with much regret and sadness that I break the sad news of the passing of Stephen Mugabi. I was with Stephen last weekend when we heard of him taken ill and in a critical condition. I returned to the office in Nairobi Monday and in the evening got a call from Kampala that Stephen had passed.

Stephen until his death was the head of the AEA Relief and Development Commission based in Kampala. In this role he forged numerous global and international partnerships with Christian relief and development agencies. Stephen was perhaps the most dedicated and committed individual to the mission of AEA. In nearly twenty seven years of continous service to AEA he served in various roles including, Social Work Assistant, Finance officer, Ethics and Society and latterly and for most of his tenure head of Relief and Development Commission. Stephen was very supportive and dependable whenever AEA needed any assistance.

Stephen was 54, survived by his wife Sarah and four boys, Caesar, David, Jonathan and Daniel.

The funeral service and burial will take place in Kampala at the Kampala Pentecostal Church at 10am and burial at 2pm at September 13th in Kariki his home town and on the outskirts of Kampala.

We thank God for Stephen's life and service to humanity and are comforted in the belief and assurance that he has preceded us to have his rest in the Lord; the glorious destiny we all await, even if our desire is have this delayed. However, that time,place and circumstances are in the purview of the Lord, in whom we live, move and have our being. All praise and glory to Jesus our Lord, the author and finisher of our faith.
