Please Pray for the Barnes Family

Elizabeth Barnes, 18 year-old daughter of Pastor Ron and Susan Barnes, died on May 17th while she was on a trip to France. The funeral will be on Sunday.

Although I don't know this family, I think I can safely say that our family can identify with what they are going through right now. Their church, Grand River Community Church, is a Fellowship Baptist Church in Elora, Ontario. I hope and trust that their church is taking care of them as well as our church took care of us. I do know that our Saviour is able to sustain them.

My husband and I were privileged to attend Elizabeth's funeral today. It truly was a service that glorified God!

It doesn't do justice to the blessing of attending the celebration of Elizabeth's life, but you can get a taste.

There were many people from many different walks of life in attendance. I'm certain that Elizabeth's family would appreciate prayers for the extended family - that the Lord would be gracious to them and rescue them, as He did so graciously rescue Elizabeth years ago.

Blessings to you from Ontario.

This weekend, though, I received a nice reprieve and I actually felt somewhat normal for a couple days. Yesterday morning was wonderful. I felt great at church and we even enjoyed a nice lunch out with a group of friends. It actually had me a little concerned, that I suddenly felt better, but this morning everything is back into full swing. As much as I don't enjoy it
