Sad

Last night I found out something very sad. I’ve known this family of 3 for practically my entire life. They were always admirable for their spiritual qualities and had many blessings for that. They had the opportunity to travel the world and visit countries like Singapore, Thailand and some countries in Africa as well, preaching in sign language to the deaf ones in those areas. Yesterday a friend told me that the husband just up and left his wife, step-son and religion for another woman (whom I also know.) It’s heartbreaking and almost unbelievable. I used to think so highly of him. They seemed like such an ideal family. The wife was able to quit work to serve God full time. The son (18 now) has two college degrees and is currently working towards a degree in nursing, is a straight A student who also devotes his life to preaching the good news of God’s Kingdom. Tonight some friends and I are going out to dinner with the wife and son to distract them for their problems for awhile and help encourage them. It makes me think though, if this man did that to such wonderful (and I mean truly wonderful) people, what is to say that any man couldn’t change for the worst?

This is sad. I hope your taking the wife and son out helped them feel better, if just for a bit.

I hope you can continue to help them and be their friend. They will need you now.

Yeah, it seemed like it did cheer them up quite a bit. And Saturday they are having a get together at their house and everyone is bringing food and we’re going to have a wonderful time. I spent some time with the wife the other morning and she told me about how she’d been up since 3am, her mind racing. I feel terrible, but we’re doing everything we can do to help what’s left of their family. Only time will allow them to heal.

The time you are spending with her and the things you are doing will be a great help.

You are a good friend to be helping her through this.
