Tragedy

Monday I received a call from Conrad Sherland. His children, Alyssa (7) and Ryan (9) had been discovered Sunday night, murdered in their beds. I immediately went to his home, where I spent several hours with a very broken man. I and several others from our church have been ministering to Conrad and his family this week. It's been a rough ride.

I covet your prayers. Please pray for Conrad - for comfort, that he would truly trust God through this tragic time. Conrad is a believer in Christ. Please pray for me, for Mark and for Rob as we continue to meet with Conrad and his family. Please pray for the community, that healing would come quickly.

Here is the link to a website that has been set up in memory of these precious children.

The funeral will be held on Monday, May 12 at Southbrook Church. Visitation will begin at 1:30, and the service will begin at 3.

I was truly moved when I saw the story on the two lovely children who are now with their Creater in Heaven. Their father does not know me, and I don't know the family. I'm just another Christian who is affected about things that happen in our world and say my prayers for the abused and helpless children in the world. Tell their father, he is in my prayers and that God will bring him comfort, and he will see his children again someday.
