In the presence of wife and children, father and brothers and the wider Protestant Evangelical community of Gjakova, was conveyed to the Gjakova city cemeteries the body remains of the pastor the “Kosova Mission Church” Skender Hoti.
“Today the pain is big but we should be encouraged by the fact that God does not accept death but that he only calls home his children. Jesus has promised us that in my Father’s house are many mansions; for each one of us and also for Skender. Therefore, today we do not say goodbye! But see you” said pastor Driton Krasniqi while conducting the funeral.
Afterwards portions from the Holy Scriptures were read reminding the participants the very Jesus’ words: “Whoever hears my words and believes him who sent me will not be judged bus has crossed over from death to life” (John 5:24).
The participants prayed together for his wife and the three children and the extended family of Skender. The Gjakova churches have been fully mobilized to provide a dignified funeral to the member of their community.
Evening memorial service was held where so many people evoked memories from the life of Skender Hoti. Remember that Skender Hoti was severely injured by a fire that had engulfed his house in Gjakova, on December 28, 2016.
