Our friends, who serve in ministry with us, welcomed their first baby last Wednesday. We were excitedly awaiting the email but didn’t expect the shocking words we would read. Their precious baby boy was sent to the NICU and all week long, prayers were earnestly lifted up for God to save his life. This afternoon we learned that he was taken home to be with the Lord. We prayed for a miracle yet God did not answer in the way that we wanted for this family and it hurts so much. But we are also amazed at the outpouring of love and comfort that He has given.
I will always remember Gregory Michael. Our entire church body was touched by this baby boy’s life and the testimony of his parents, who lived out their faith in the midst of the darkest hours anyone could imagine. Their grief is heavy on my heart tonight.
