Walking Through the Hard Times with Friends

I was saddened beyond belief on Sunday evening when one of my best friends call to let me know that his oldest son had died in a canoing accident on the Iowa River just south on Iowa Falls. Steve & Cindy are doing well and using this as an opportunity to see God goodness and grace, resting in the peace that passes all understanding.
