Our daughter Leticia was in lockdown in a store in Christchurch New Zealand late last night. When we spoke to her by phone, dozens of innocent people had lost their lives through a mass shooting in a mosque. We are obviously so grateful to God that Leticia is safe, but our hearts grieve with our many dear friends in New Zealand during this very dark time. We pray for the Lord’s comfort and grace for all who have lost loved ones. In this time of hate, let us arise with the love of Christ to those around us in word and deed (Col. 3:17).
