The funeral service for Mrs Dorothea Scarborough will be held tomorrow, Saturday, 21 May at 10 AM
at Holy Trinity Church, 5 Vriende Street, Gardens, Cape Town.
Mrs Dorothea Scarborough was a Missionary, with the London Missionary Society, to the Gilbert Islands, on the equator, in the Pacific Ocean.
For many years Mrs Scarborough led the Women's World Day of Prayer.
She was the Editor of the International German language Vox Afrikana and UCANEWS.
She also founded Gospel Defence League.
Mrs Scarborough was a founder member of the Reformation Society in 2005 and of Livingstone Fellowship in 2006.
For 15 years she attended the Thursday night Reformation Society meetings and Livingstone Fellowship services at Livingstone House.
Even as her body grew older and weaker, her mind was sharp, her analysis incisive and her convictions like iron.
Mrs Scarborough was gracious and friendly, but she had a doctrinal backbone of steel.
She would not back down, she would not bow and she would not bend on any matter of Biblical faithfulness, truth and principle.
Mrs Dorothea Scarborough was faithful, dependable, courageous, principled, steadfast, fervent, dedicated and relentless.
We grieve, but we do not grieve as those who have no hope. "For to me to live is Christ and to die is gain!” Philippians 1:21
Dying Christ destroyed our death.
Rising Christ restored our life.
“Jesus said: ‘Whoever hears My Word, and believes Him who sent Me, has eternal life
and will not be condemned. He has crossed over from death to life.” John 5:24
