Ephesians 6:10

...applied in real life. Pastor Greg Laurie, in the wake of his son Christopher's death in a car accident, said, "The Lord is with me. I can't be afraid of suffering. I will continue on with greater commitment. . . . I have a task to do and I am going to do it."

"I can't be afraid of suffering"-that spoke to my heart of hearts-so convicting.

I found out about Chris death a couple hours after it had happened and very hard to take. We are praying for the family and everyone he has come in contact throughout his life. Please pray for his wife and kids!!

We went to Harvest for many years when we lived in California..I am sure it is heartbreaking..yet we do serve a GOD that understands our grief...and does heal..and does get us through these rough times..

Hi, Heather:

I was at the Foster post office last week and saw your van. I didn't realize it, but I was crying as I sat there and watched some STRANGER and her kids get in and drive away.

Love you and miss you so much.
