This week went from one where I was hoping to get a lot of pastoral visiting done, to one where I will be doing pastoral visiting, but not of the people I expected. On Monday night I received a call from a member of the congregation I serve that their step-grandson had dies suddenly Monday morning. Their son and daughter in law are not members at our church, but I and my wife have started to get to know them over the past few years, and they would like me to do the funeral. I ask that you keep me in your prayers, as I did not know this young man (only 20) at all, so I do not know how he was with the Lord. Pray that I will clearly and lovingly proclaim the gospel at the funeral, and that God will use it to work in the hearts of those present there. Also, please pray for this family. I cannot imagine what it would be like to find my son dead, and then the police and paramedics and all the rest investigating to see what happened. Pray God will grant them the peace that can only come through faith in Christ, drawing them near to himself through his Son.
