OK, I know not everyone here is a believer but I'd like to ask for a prayer for some friends.
We just got an e-mail from South Africa that a friend of ours was murdered. He and his wife were selling their home and getting ready to go sailing full time. Their goal was to help bring aid and outreach teams into needy remote areas of the South Pacific. Their daughters were headed out with them and I believe they had just got one through college. Suspicion is it was for the few dollars in his pockets. What a terrible mess.
They are struggling with what to do right now and the wife has to continue working through all this loss. Wish we could be there to help.
The police are not very likely to do much from what she says. They thought they were in a safe area.

Sad to hear, Prayers for his family
A real man loves his wife, and places his family as the most important thing in life. Nothing has brought me more peace and content in life than simply being a good husband and father.
Why not right now?
Holy God & Heaven Father, we praise Your Name above all names. We lift our hearts to you in asking that you sent your Holy Spirit to comfort this family in the time of their tragic loss. We ask for your hand to be upon them, that You be nearby as they struggle under the weight of their grief. We pray for your mercy & ask for your guidance. We rest in your justice, knowing nothing escapes your eventual judgement. Be close to us & this family. In the name of Christ Jesus we ask...Amen.
There are only TWO kinds of people in this world; those who describe the world as filled with two kinds of people...and those who don't.
You got it. So sorry to hear this.
I pray that God will bless them in spite of, and somehow, even thru all this.

The world is a dangerous place to live; not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don't do anything about it.
Sorry to hear that. Prayers sent.

It is always hard to lose a friend and one that is murdered is even harder. Prayers are sent for the family and you. We can only hope that if justice isn't served in this world it will be in the next.
Sorry to hear this...on the list!

My deepest sympathies, May God grant them the strength they need.
