Working Wednesday: Mourning with those who mourn

This week our hearts are heavy for Rick Geisel, one of our board members, as he mourns the loss of his wife Diane, age 43. Earlier this year doctors discovered a malignancy in her brain, and her health quickly deteriorated until the Lord took her home.

We find comfort in our faith that Rick and Gideon (age 13) and Grace (10) will one day be reunited with her. 1 Thessalonians 4:13-14 says, “Brothers and sisters, we do not want you to be uninformed about those who sleep in death, so that you do not grieve like the rest of mankind, who have no hope. For we believe that Jesus died and rose again, and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him.”

Please join us in praying for the family, that they may feel God’s loving arms around them and that God’s peace will cover them.
