"David was the first son of our Founder and Presiding Bishop and Episcopal Sister Adelaide Heward -Mills. David was a Medical Doctor working and living in the US. He was 31 years old.

"We, also as a church, are heartbroken, however, we stand with our leader and his family and believe that God will comfort and see us through this very difficult season.
