Pray for the Bridges

My heart aches tonight for Matt & Andrew Bridges and their family.

Matt and Andrew lost their father, Nelson, in a horrible accident that occurred this evening. The Bridges are very special to our family. Matt and Andrew were two of the most faithful students in Josh's youth ministry in Amarillo, and Matt took Josh's place as youth minister when we moved to Fort Worth. Over the years, we came to know the rest of the family, and we grew to love them as well. Nelson was one of the kindest men you'd ever meet, and he always had a smile on his face. He will truly be missed.

I am asking that you please pray for the Bridges family.


Brenda, Kelli, Matt, Andrew, and Ashley: we are praying for you.

I'm so sorry for the loss of your friend, Josh and Libby. I will be praying for their family. This is so sad any time, but especially at this time of year.
