Bruce’s Friends

My friend Shelly (Evidence of Grace) has written a moving piece on what her husband would say to her if he had the chance.  Brian was killed in a car accident leaving her and three small children behind, and her blog is a way for her to work through the grief.  Good writing here.  If you’ve ever lost a loved one, especially to tragedy, then you should read what Shelly wrote.  It will move you.  If it doesn’t, perhaps you need a heart checkup.

His peace on you and your family, Shelly; and may you continue to reach beyond yourself.



I’ve taken a cue from Amber, and I’m just pointing out some new links (and some old ones):

  • A couple of my friends have started blogging. Smitty is Crockpot Faith and Shelly is Evidence of Faith. Stop by and say hello.
  • I’ve also added a new page: Blood:Water Mission which was started by Jars of Clay. As they say: “Blood:Water Mission exists to promote clean blood and clean water efforts in Africa, tangibly reducing the impact of the HIV/AIDS pandemic while addressing the underlying issues of poverty, injustice and oppression.” HT:Amber
  • Of course there is still WaterAid, WorldVision, and the ONE Campaign to make poverty history.


Heard from Jami, everyone is fine.  They will be home next weekend.  Their phone went dead and they were unable to make contact until 1:00 this morning (Sunday).

Thanks for all your prayers and continue to remember them as they return home.


I’ve mentioned that I have a friend who is on a two-month mission trip to Peru.  Actually she is heading up the team of college aged young adults.  She’s only 21 herself. We heard last night that the coordinators haven’t heard anything from the team in over a week.  I don’t know if that is normal, but if you would, please pray for contact of some sort.  Her name is Jami.
