Prayers Needed

Just got this message in an email from Elaine Kolodziej. She is the dear friend of ours who spoke at Jack’s Memorial. They own the newspapers in Wilson County where Sutherland Springs is located. She knew everyone who was killed or injured in the shooting.

 “Today is the funeral for the Holcombe family. John Holcombe is burying his parents, his wife and four children, brother and his brother’s daughter. 😦   I can’t imagine … Elaine”


Please keep John Holcombe in your prayers. Like Elaine, I can’t even begin to imagine what he is going through. And how shattered his life is. I pray Our Lord wraps him in His loving arms, giving him peace, comfort and the will to continue. May God bless him with the strength and courage to face the path ahead of him. We can’t understand, we can only Trust in God. This certainly makes our little issues seem extremely insignificant. Thank you with all of my heart,

    This is so very sad. I can’t imagine going through something like that. All we can do is pray that the Lord continues to give him strength. I will pray for his for Mr. Holcombe.

    This is beyond comprehension. I hope you don’t mind, but I posted this on my Facebook page. I know what it’s like to lose my daughter and my mother in the same year, but I can’t even come close to the grief this man must be feeling today, and every day since this happened. God give him comfort, mercy, and the peace that only Jesus can give which is totally beyond anything that we can say or so.

    Keeping Mr. Holcombe in my thoughts and prayers, as well as all the other victims’ families. Such a tragedy. 😦 Thank you for posting this, Mikki.

    Dear Mikki,

    This is so heartbreaking!! We don’t understand all of this, but I prayed for John!! I cannot imagine his hurt and pain! And it is all so unnecessary. In our country (South Africa) people, especially our farmer get murdered and those are the people who put food on our tables. BUT GOD IS STILL IN CONTROL AND THAT WE MUST ALWAYS BELIEVE AND HOLD ON TOO!

    God bless
