Yesterday in the city of Jackson, MS the life of a beautiful, vibrant, trusting young woman was brutally stolen. I happen to have known her. I can close my eyes and still see her fully engaged in participating in the fun at Christian camp. I know her family. I have for many years. They are dear friends with whom I have shared many wonderful times. They are my brothers and sisters in Christ. They are now completely crushed.
Yesterday the boyfriend in whom Heather Spencer trusted- even after his previous behavior screamed for her not to-murdered her. Her mother said that Heather just wanted to see the best in him.
Tomorrow I go to Jackson. I am asking God to provide for me the words to say to this precious family at her funeral on Friday.
I solicit your prayers- first, foremost, and enduring for this family- then for me.
