Another Update

I received a text from Sarah that Henry passed away at 8:00 this morning. My heart is so heavy.

Please continue to pray for them, particularly now as the grief of losing their son really begins to set in.

I am planning to visit Sarah this afternoon. Please be praying for that time. Please pray that God would equip me with the words, or the lack of words, that would be of the greatest comfort to Sarah. Please pray that my ministering to them would draw them to Christ. That is my deepest desire... that they would find the peace and comfort that comes from knowing Him. I cannot imagine going through this without my faith in God.

When Steven Curtis Chapman lost his daughter, he said, "The only thing scarier than going through this with my faith, is going through it alone, cursing God." That resonates with me so deeply.

Thank you for continuing to pray for this precious family, especially now...

Sarah, Henry and their family have been in our prayers and I am so sorry to hear this latest update. I pray that your time with Sarah will be a comfort for her and that she can heal as she mourns the loss of her son. I also pray that she can cherish the memories of the time they had together and continue to walk with Christ on this painful journey.

was hoping to not see these words...may the power of God's ministering spirit lead, guide, direct and comfort.

Oh God, be YOU wholly in this. And keep Stacey from the enemy as her own pain is still fresh as she seeks to bless others through her own circumstances. keep and comfort both of these mommies.

in Jesus name.
