serious

Most of you guys know that i have been involved with youth ministry for many years now. And one of the great highlights is always youth camp in the summer. Yesterday some of my good friends from fbc richmond were at camp in Blue Ridge, Ga. A young man with their group from another church was pulled from the lake and given cpr. He was life-flighted to Erlanger Hospital in Chattanooga and is in a coma. He is breathing on his own, but has not yet regained conciousness. His family has flown down to be with Him.

The groups have all decided to go back home, because many of the kids are upset, and rightfully so.

Please pray for shane the young man who drowned;
Jeff, Kevin and the other leaders of these two youth groups as they try to counsel teens;
and the teens as they deal with these feelings and emotions.

Romans 8:28 (NLT)
And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.

Geron, I'm really sorry to hear about shane. I'll pray about him and send the request on to others.

That sort of thing can put a damper on kids for the rest of their lives. We had a loss at Faith Baptist Church last week--their minister of youth died very unexpectedly--only in his thirties. Too sad.
