Faith in the Fire

For those of you who don't know, Chris' Grandma Hynd (his mom's mom) died in a house fire last night. She lived in a mobile home next door to Chris' mom and dad in the country south of Crescent City. Paul and Leslie saw the fire, but they couldn't get in in time to get her out-the fire was already too out of control. The hardest part was that they found Granny close to the double glass doors which is only about 5 feet from the outside door. So, there is a lot of self blaming going on. Please pray especially for Chris Mom and Dad as well as the rest of the family. Granny was 92 and ready to go home, but the way she died has everyone in a state of shock and mourning right now. Thankfully, Jesus is our Rock and our Anchor and Chris' family does know the Lord, so pray that they would cling to the Rock at this time. Thanks!

I saw your status on facebook and wondered how things had turned out. I'm sorry that it ended this way. Chris's family will for sure be in our prayers.
