I was hit hard last night when I found out from a friend about the wife of a friend's tragic death. Rev. Michael Poynter was a few years behind me at Seminary, and then we would see each other every so often at St. Louis events like CPH's warehouse sale. His wife Rachel and my wife Laura seemed to be pregnant at exactly the same times (except for our last pregnancy.) Reading "Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of His saints" was a blessing this morning.
Please keep their congregation, children, and Mike in your prayers.
