Tragic News

Monday, February 04, 2013

Today i received some tragic news from one of my former students. Her sister died in her sleep last night. Please pray for the family of Jodie Vaughn-Borchers. She leaves behind a husband and three young children.

It had been my privilege to know Jodie and her family as our church sought to minister to her and her siblings. We have stayed in touch over the years thanks to social media. Her sister shared the news with me today, and then asked if i would be available to do the funeral later this week.

Prayers for this family would be greatly appreciated.

    Oh, Coop! Such sad news, indeed. It's so hard for the families when these untimely deaths occur. But it's hard, too, for the officiants at these services, which some people don't realize the way we PKs do. I'll be keeping you and your family in my prayers, as well as Jodie's.
