Today during chapel, one of our married couples, Tom and Tori, found out that Tom's dad died this morning. He wasn't sick or anything....he just didn't wake up this morning. It was very sudden and unexpected. They flew out this afternoon to California to be with the family and prepare for the funeral. Pray for Tom. He's taking it really hard. He's not sure if his dad was a believer or not. He professed to be a child of God, but they still aren't sure if it was genuine. Pray for Tori as well. She's my age, and now she's faced with the challenge of trying to comfort her husband during this time of unimaginable grief. Looking at her face 15 minutes after they got the call, I recognized the confusion, shock, horror, and unspeakable grief that we all felt a year and a half ago. Please please PLEASE lift them up in your prayers!!!
