Sad News

Last week I posted an interview hosted by Pastor Greg Laurie here. On Thursday, Greg Laurie's 33 year old son, Christopher, was killed in a car accident. He is survived by a wife and small daughter. They are also expecting another child in November. Please pray for this family as they mourn their loss. Go here to see a picture of the family, read the details, leave a comment of support and/or contribute to the memorial fund that has been set up in his honor.

OH that is just so so sad..... a tragedy for the whole family. We have lost my two brothers in the same way... it is so very hard to get over. I hope they can all help one another at this time.

That definitely made me sad. I am a huge fan of Greg Laurie and he is a friend of our pastor...so I know that will touch him and his family deeply.

And what a horrible time to lose someone, while you are expecting. That will be so bittersweet for her to give birth to their baby.

Sad.
