    A family, a church, and a community near here, lost its pastor about mid morning Saturday. He leaves behind wife and children, a family of faith and many friends, and a testimony of faith in the finished work of Jesus and encouragement to others to know and proclaim the gospel. (Not privileged to hear all the news, this is told from what I could find on IN.)

    He was on a motorcycle on a main US hwy, traveling west when a east bound car turned in front of him to head north. In full safety gear, he still sustained fatal injuries. He'd resumed riding a motocycle about a year ago and was a member of a Christian motorcycle club/ministry as well. He was in his 50's.

    Please pray for his family and community, for the mid aged woman who was driving the car which hit him, that somehow, inspite of the tragedy of loss, her life may be blest in a spiritual healing and response to the message of salvation, and for others who heard him witness about the perilousness and unpredictableness of life and the 'now' time for salvation and living for Jesus.

    Please remember also those who will minister comfort to his family and church and that God will fill the leadership which he leaves behind with persons of deep faith and character.
