Christen

My sweet and beautiful friend and sister, Christen Ringle, has gone home to be with Jesus. Thank you all for praying. Please continue to pray for Joe and for their children, Audrey and Hudson, and for all her family and loved ones. I don't pretend to understand but I know that God is still good and that He will receive glory in this.

The message below is from Joe:

"The Lord took Christen home to be with Him today. The pressure that was in her brain was too great for the blood to get to her brain stem. I want to thank all of you for praying and want to encourage you not to lose heart and to know that the Lord will receive great glory from this. Please continue to pray for my kids, Audrey & Hudson, as well as for me during this time. For those that may want to come to the hospital, we are keeping it to just family at this point. Funeral service details will follow. I love you all. Thank you for your service in prayer and love."

I am so sorry to hear about your friend. I too lost a dear friend just a few days ago. I will be praying for you as well as Christen's family. Although there is comfort in knowing they are in Heaven, the loss is still felt so greatly here on Earth.

I am so sorry to hear this. Our prayer group has been praying for her. Thank you, Lord, for your mercies- they are new and fresh each morning. Thank you for watching over Christen and for your promise that brothers and sisters in Christ will see her again. Thank you for Joe's faith; please bolster that in the days and weeks to come, and as he said, God will be glorified through this event. Watch over the comings and goings of Audrey and Hudson, and help them to understand You and to grow in their faith and service to You. Comfort Joe, Audrey and Hudson at this time and give them the peace that transcends all understanding. We pray in Jesus name, Amen.

Whitt,

Thank you so very much for all of your prayers last week. Though I was unable to respond to your messages, I want to let you known that I was very encouraged by them. What a blessing to be a part of the body of Christ. I thank God for you. Please thank your prayer group.

Blessings,
