Nona Freeman on Christmas Eve

From her family on  Christmas Eve, I received the following update concerning our dear Sister Freeman.

Based on her condition now; Mom is as weak as she can get and is not responsive at all. Her home going could be any moment. She is the lowest we have seen her the entire time. The family is by her bedside 24/7 and she does not recognize nor respond to anyone. She does not even respond to prayer, singing or scripture read to her and the world knows that is the life of Nona Freeman.

She is still not in any pain and we are doing all we can for her. She is not taking any fluids or nourishment and her doctors and hospice has removed all her meds except for patch forms. Everything is being done for her according to her wishes.

Now not only do we face losing my precious mom but there is also an unusually strong winter storm predicted for our area and our family is traveling in these conditions.

To the world she is Nona Freeman; Foreign Missionary; minister or legend but to us; this is our precious mother! Thanks for all your prayers and messages that is so comforting; we read them all. Please continue to pray for us now and in the days ahead. Updates will be released daily.

    Sister Freeman will always be remembered in a very special way in our family; she was instrumental in helping my husband come to Jesus. She was and will continue to be an inspiration to so many and she will be missed. I thank God for letting her be with us for so many years.

  2. I am so blessed to have known Sister Nona Freeman. I enjoyed her poems and books and many other writings. Yes we need more people like her, Our Lord Jesus, was truly seen through her acts of kindness, and labor of love in many different ways.

    Family, I don’t think it will be much longer now, that we will be joining her.
    What a day that will be!!!!

    So sorry for your loss. I have not heard Sis Freeman speak in over 20 years however seeing her brings back memories. She came many time to my home church in Pensacola. I bet Sis Freeman and Bro Welch are having a grand ole Apolostic Shouting time up in the heavens. Love you all your family.

    Dear Friends of Nona Freeman:

    We sorrow, yet rejoice to inform you of the earthly departure and heavenly arrival of our mother Nona E. Freeman 93 years old. She was a Jesus name Minister; Foreign Missionary; Daughter; Wife; Mother; Grandparent and beloved friend to millions around the world.

    She took the 10:45 pm flight, Saturday, December 26, 2009 at our home in Fort Worth Texas. Take-off was smooth after 93 years of waiting on the run-way. There was often layovers at various terminals in her life but she never complained.

    She began her Ministry in 1939. She spread the gospel of Jesus Christ for over 70 years as a Preacher; Speaker; Columnist, Evangelist and beloved author of more than twenty books. She preached and served as pastor’s wife throughout the U.S. and the continent of her burden, Africa.

    Upon arrival she was greeted at her Heavenly Destination by Jesus then she was finally greeted by her spouse of 62 years; her beloved E.L. ‘Bug’ Freeman!

    She was also greeted her daughter and our sister Marla, and not only a fellow minister but her beloved mother, Carrie Eastridge as well as a host of loved ones, the apostles and prophets of old.

    Those left at the terminal upon her departure; daughter and travel companion Sandra Freeman of Fort Worth, Texas, daughters, Linda, Sharon, son Dale Freeman, several generations of grandchildren, siblings, family and a host of friends around the world.

    The Home Going Service and Celebration of her life commonly called a ‘funeral’ will be announced Monday, December 28, 2009

    The Nona Freeman family thanks you and asks for your prayers at this time.

    Goodbye Sister Freeman. Thank you for your dedication to God. I was touched by many of your sermons, especially by one entitled, “So What?” that you preached many years ago in Louisiana.
