This past summer I met a young man who was on staff as a counsellor at a nearby Bible Camp where I served for a week. We quickly hit it off and made the decision that I would start mentoring the young man in fall. Our meetings together have ben good. He is a fine young man who comes from difficult circumstances, much like I had growing up. This past week he was diagnosed with cancer. His surgery is this Friday. Please pray for this young man and for me as I do my best to walk alongside him. Thankfully they found the cancer early and it seems to be contained to one area.
Yesterday I got news of a young 21 year old man that I knew, was killed in a crash that was the result of a police chase. I am very saddened by this news. He has a a daughter who is under a year old. Please pray for the family.
