Clarence, Eveline and members of the DeSchiffart family.
Beverly and I were saddened to learn of the death of Clarence's father. Grief is a journey and the Lord promises to be with His people in that journey. We are grateful for the words of the Lord Jesus, "I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me though he die yet shall he live. " John 11:25 We are remembering you in prayer.
