John and Wanda Casias
Yesterday on facebook, a friend asked for prayer for a missionary family in Mexico that had been murdered. You can see their website here and read a news article about the death here. My heart aches for their family, not for them, as they are in Glory. They had ten adult children (so I've read). I did not know them, but they're a fellow brother and sister in the Lord. Would you please pray for the Lord to comfort thier family?
Yesterday in my devotions I read about the stoning of Stephen, my devotional book had me read I Peter 4:12-14. I thought it was quite fitting.
"Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you,
as though some strange thing happened unto you:
but rejoice, in as much as ye are partakers of Christ's sufferings;
that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy.
If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy are ye;
for the spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you:
on their part he is evil spoken of, but on your part he is glorified."
I Peter 4:12-14
