As we drove out of the lane this morning to go to church this was our view. Not a very pleasant sight.
Our son Curtis, spent quite a bit of time building this mailbox for us, to go along with the cabins we live in. Like I said in this post, is this ministry easy? No, it can be very hard, trying and frustrating. This would be one of those days. We don't know who did this but a little while ago I posted about a Lost Boy. Then in another post I asked you to pray for the Lost Boy because he has left the ranch before completing it, and never accepted Jesus into his heart. Our heart goes out to this boy, we came to love him like our own, and he is still running, still hurting and still searching in all the wrong places. Please pray for him.
We are waiting for the police to find the person that did this crime. We find it a little amusing when we found an abandoned car along side the road this morning about two miles away from the ranch by a little country church and it happens to belong to the lost boy.
We do want the person(s) involved in this crime to be consequenced for their actions. So please pray that God would bring to the surface the truth in this whole thing.
We not only want them to pay for the crime but deep down we want them to realize that they can't keep running from God and have a "good" life.
Ecclesiastes 8:12-13 "Even though a person sins and gets by with it hundreds of times throughout a long life, I'm still convinced that the good life is reserved for the person who fears God, who lives reverently in his presence, and that the evil person will not experience a "good" life. No matter how many days he lives, they'll all be as flat and colorless as a shadow—because he doesn't fear God." The Message
