An American Soldier

A few days ago I received the sad news that Jonathan Edds was killed in Iraq. The last time I saw him, he was an 8-year old kid in White Pigeon, Michigan. He and his family were part of the church I served. His father became the minister when I left. John and his two brothers Joel & Josh were great kids. Their parents, Barry & Julie are wonderful people. I can't imagine their grief. I'm going to White Pigeon tonight to offer condolences and to pay my respects to a great patriot. We owe a huge debt of gratitude to all of the men & women who put on the uniform for the USA. Please pray for their families.

We just buried the founder of IDES today. He was also a veteran of WW II. Our prayers to you and the family.
