Yesterday morning we got a phone call from my in-laws that informed us Jim's sister had passed away. This has been a very hard thing for all of them. I ask that you pray especially for her son who is a foreign exchange student in Japan. He will hopefully be arriving tonight. Also for Jim's youngest brother who was so close to Barbara and this is tough for him. And most importantly for us to be able to shine Jesus on this situation. His mom is a devoted Buddist and will be having a Buddist funeral. Please pray that God's light will shine thru us.
