As a pastor, no amount of preparation can really get you ready to preach the funeral of a family member, especially one for a baby. I would ask that you would pray for me tomorrow as I try to be a good brother in law, but also a good pastor as I minister to my family. Also, please pray I will have the emotional strength necessary as I preach. It is going to be a hard day, but God’s grace is sufficient. The service will be very God-honoring and Christ-exalting and I hope you are making plans to attend if you can. Ben and Jeannie are doing well and we pray that God continues to minister to their heart in powerful ways. Our God is good and we trust Him…and to Him be all the glory.
Praying for you Pastor as you represent Christ ministering to your family. It would be humanly impossible without His grace and strength, but I know and you know that your ” help cometh from the Lord., the Lord who made heaven and earth.” May His peace be upon Ben and Jeannie especially, and all of the family as you weep, yet rejoice in the hope you have in Jesus,
In Christian love, Lou
