Tribute to Lalzoliana

A TRIBUTE TO LALZOLIANA


(October 12, 1990 – September 3, 2020)

Our beloved friend Lalzoliana, a student of B.D. IV, unfortunately met with an electric shock on 26th August, 2020 at 5 P.M. While we expected him to recover soon and while we were earnestly praying for him, he rather went to be with the Lord on 3rd September, 2020 at 3 PM.

The A.I.C.S family is very much saddened by the fact that such a horrifying misfortune, which we never thought and expect even in our dream, happened to our beloved member. It stunned us, frightened us, terrified us, and we do not know how to cope with it.

Lalzoliana has been a good and promising student, very bright, friendly, innocent, gentle, well self-disciplined, diligent, jovial, and adorable, one who demonstrated a candid life. We could not understand why A.I.C.S lost such a precious student.
Human mind, in fact, could not comprehend what had happened to him. We do believe, however, that the God of love would have held him dearly at His bosom now, and explained to him all the things that had happened to him; and then he would be peacefully resting now at the side of the loving God.

A.I.C.S will remember Lalzoliana. All the good things which he exemplified in his life will be mentioned again and again along with his name in the days to come.

When he almost had finished his preparation to become a good minister of God, and when we did feel that it’s not yet the right time, he but answered the higher call from heaven. We do share the sorrow of his mother, his siblings and his relatives from the bottom of our hearts. It is our prayer that the good Lord would always abide with them giving them peace and comfort from above.
