In memory of Paz Corpuz

A lovely memorial service for Paz Corpuz took place at our church on Sunday 13 November. It included wonderful testimonies and memories of Paz by family and friends, some of her  favorite hymns, and an inspiring message by Pastor Roger Roberts.

Paz (Fausta) Corpuz was fatally injured in a traffic accident in Knokke-Heist on Tuesday 1 November. Feel free to leave a message of condolence to the family or your own memory of Paz by making a comment. Her good friend Meg Cools has collected some photos of Paz as a visual tribute:

  1. I am really sad to hear of the passing of Paz. She welcomed me during my posting in brussels, she really took care of me and my two kids,she was like a sister to me. To think that i hv been trying to get hold of her the whole of last year, little did i know she went. My condolensces go to her family, may her soul rest in peace.

    We were always greeted with a warm smile and a “How are you doing?” by our sister Paz since the time we started attending IBC. She was a very dear sister in the Lord and we will miss her but look forward to seeing her again…

    I pray that God’s peace and grace will cover Paz’s family
    Psalm 91:15
    He will call on me, and I will answer him;
    I will be with him in trouble,
    I will deliver him and honor him.

    John 14:1-3
    “Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me. My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am”

    I’m really surprised at the news and sorry for her and all others. I haven’t been in touch with her for a long time. She was very kind to me as well as all other people in the church when I was in Brussels three years ago. I don’t know what to say, but feel deeply sorry and pray for her and people left behind her.

    Praying for Leo and especially Jayson, Justin and Janine. This news has been such a shock for us, I can’t even imagine how they must feel. Lord, please surround them and all friends and family with your love, comfort and warm embrace. Fill them with the peace of knowing that Paz is with you in a far better place where all sorrow and pain are gone and that one day we will see her again!

  21. Francine Van Assche says:

    I haven’t known her personally but this is unbelievable to realise that your mum will never come back home on this earth!
    Lord to whom shall we go? You alone oh Lord has Words and ways to comfort this family..
    So to You we lift up our eyes, our help comes from You and You alone!
    United in Him who cares and loves and knows us best.
    May we be united as one family in this undescribable hard and difficult period!

  22. Ruth Wesselink says:

    We have not only lost a very special friend but also a part of our family. Paz was with us since 1985; she was like a younger sister to me and a second mother to our children. I still can’t fathom it! Pease pray especially for Janine – she is in total shock
