Please Join Me in Prayer

Please pray for three families on our church. A young married man, Dan Firman, and three teen boys were on their way home from work when they were involved in a serious accident. Three of them were killed instantly and the other one is still hanging in the balances, but it is not looking good at all. Dan's wife is expecting their first child in January; his brother was two cars behind them and saw the whole thing. I'm sure he's still in shock. Two of the boys were brothers, the oldest two of 6 children. Their mother said she lost the one who took care of her (the oldest who just graduated from high school this year) and the one who made her laugh (he was going to be a junior this year).

We are having a prayer meeting at 11:00 this morning at our church. Would you join us in prayer for these families? Right now they are in the bubble of God's grace, which will hold them up and carry them through the next few days of decisions and family and funeral. The next weeks and months will be harder as day to day life tries to "settle in" unsuccessfully.

Our teenagers at our church are really having a difficult time, and I covet prayers for them. They have had quite a difficult year and seem to really be questioning how God could allow this to happen. All of these young men had superb testimonies and loved God.

Thank you for praying.

    I hate to leave this on a post like this but couldn't find an e-mail address. I was wondering was your mother-in-law Judi Vest? I didn't know her but I have read the book her family wrote containing her writings (Let Her Own Works Praise Her) many, many times because it is one of my favorites. I wish I could have known her she seemed like such a godly, humble, lovely lady.

    You have a beautiful blog and a beautiful family. (o:

    Many Blessings,

  7. Thinking and praying for you tonight.
    Hope things are doing better and the school year is off and running...
    love, mrs.musser
