This one's for the children
I couldn't get through it without choking up, breaking down.
Telling the teenagers, and the littles, "Zach died this evening. He's in heaven now."
I couldn't even type that without sobbing.
But tonight I am not sad for Zach. He fought a hard fight.
And he fought it valiantly. Cancer tried to get the best of him.
But he found a way to redeem his time while fighting the death inside him.
No, tonight I sob for his wife, Jenny.
And their two children, Zion and Moriah.
Please join me in prayer for this family. Because God promises to be our comfort and our hope.
Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me. My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. You know the way to the place where I am going.... I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you. John 14:1-4, 18
And give. So that the legacy Zach and Jenny began can continue. And can touch many more lives in the process.
