Thank you to so many of you for your prayers for my sister-in-law, Brenda. I wish I had news — any news — but unfortunately today has been quite dry with news. The police are still searching, the media has been amazing at picking up the story, and people around the world are praying.
I know of at least three churchs here in Toronto that are praying, and I’m sure there are at least three others in London/Woodstock that are praying as well (I’d bet that number is even higher). On top of that, through the beauty of the Internet, Facebook and Twitter, we have people praying in:
- All over Southern Ontario
- Thunder Bay, Ontario
- Ottawa, Ontario
- Atlanta, Georgia
… and even …
- Brisbane, Australia
- Medellin, Columbia
- Gladstone, Oregon, USA
- Harare, Zimbabwe
- (I’ll update this as more places chime in)
I know that our family has REALLY appreciated the prayers. It is amazing to feel the prayers of others being lifted up to God and to know that the Father is listening and responding with love and grace.
Keep praying, and we’ll keep you updated.
I am old friend and school mate of Brenda’s from Western U.School of Nursing. I join with so many who are heartbroken about this news of Brenda. She was beautiful, inside and out, a woman of singular intelligence, grace and goodness. Her life was one of service to others and to her Lord. Our prayers are with you and your family, and all of Brenda’s family. May the God of all comfort be your comfort, strength and peace in the coming days.
