Indy Tragedy

By now I'm sure you've heard of the Indiana State Fair tragedy. The stage collapsed during a thunderstorm on Saturday night and 5 people were killed along with numerous others injured.

It was a freak accident and caused the fair to be closed yesterday. Although it has reopened today all further scheduled concerts have been cancelled.

Would you join us in prayers for the family members who have lost a loved one and for those still recovering, whether physically or emotionally?

The TV coverage continues to talk about how people came together to help, how some folks actually turned around and headed towards the stage instead of away -- just to start helping others. The reporters seem shocked by these actions --- and yet Monty and I have seen this continually over the years!

We know how God reaches in at our most desperate moments and touches our hearts -- your hearts -- with the desire to be His hands and His feet!

Our deepest gratitude to ALL of you who have volunteered over the years! You turned toward the need and not away, you opened your hearts and extended your hands to those who just needed someone to care, someone to show them God's love.

Monty and I look forward to working with all of you again, wherever and whenever God plans.

In the meantime, please pray for healing, for peace and for comfort for all.

Until next time . . . count your blessings today! It will take you all day!!!! Susan and Monty

We're continuing to lift up the families of those who were killed as well as those who were injured and are still hospitalized. A 17 yr old boy whose back was broken (he may never walk again); a 5th grade girl named Jade who is in a coma; a 30 yr old mother and 22 yr old Ball state Senior, both in critical condition.
