PLEASE PLEASE PRAY!!!

I need my readers to please pray for me and MY family. My sister called me this morning to tell me that my brother was killed last night. His house was burnt to the ground and they found gas cans outside the house so they suspected arson. Once the fire got contained to where they could go in and look they went looking for his body in the house. They did not find his body. They then searched his property since there were pop-pops heard either just before the fire or during the fire. My brother was a hunter and had lots of ammo and guns so they thought maybe it was the ammo reacting with the fire. Upon searching his property they found him in a ravine behind his house and they say it appears he had been shot. He died in that ravine. He was not saved so that is more devastating than his death to me.

My parents are still not saved and I'm praying that the Lord will use us as we go to Mississippi to be with them to be of help and a witness to them. My sister is headed that way with her husband this afternoon. My parents are headed that way as well shortly. We won't go until we get word to go. Please pray for traveling mercies for our family as we travel there and that God would help us while we are there.

Thank you so much!!

Sis. Julie,
Please know that we are praying for you all. May the Lord grant you wisdom and dicernment to deal with your family. I know your heart has had much grief these last few months but remember what Job said in 23:10, "But he knoweth the way that I take: when he hath tried me, I shall come forth as gold." God bless you all. We love you all!!

Dear Julie,
I am so sorry for your heartbreaking news on your brother...I will pray for your great loss...and I will also pray for God to give you wisdom as you speak with your family that you will say something that will soften their hearts toward God...and perhaps you can be an instrument for bringing them to Jesus...
Love and prayers,
Mimi
