Prayers and Sympathies

Today brought devastating news at first light for so many.

Hartline offers our prayers for those recovering from the tornado's destructive path, and sympathies to those that have lost friends and loved ones.

Sympathies also go out to the Family of David Wilkerson, whose life was lost in a tragic car accident yesterday. We ask you to pray for his wife Gwen who was seriously injured in that accident.

David Wilkerson began Teen Challenge, a Christian outreach for troubled teens that continues strongly today. He authored the world renowned story, The Cross and the Switchblade, the astonishing true story of Wilkerson's outreach to New York teens trapped by drugs and gangs in the 60's. Over 14 million copies in print.

With Heavy Hearts,

Joyce, Tamela, Terry and Diana

I am praying for everyone in the area. I have lived through 3 tornados. They are so unpredictable. I am sad to hear the news about David. We often wonder why things happen to people who are helping others and leading others to Christ...we can't explain why these special people are called home "before their time"....I will continue to pray for everyone. I need to remember that God's timing is best. Joyce shared that phrase with me on a few occasions and it is wonderful advice.
