As you know, we spent the first six years of our time in Canada establishing a church in North Vancouver. We still love those people dearly, and this week, one of our families is hurting.
The 22-year-old daughter of this family suffered for many years from an eating disorder. She and her parents went through a lot with this disease. She nearly died several times. Last weekend, she chose to take her own life. We are heartbroken. Jessica was a beautiful young woman, but she believed the lie that she wasn't worth anything and that she was ugly. She was far from ugly, and far from being worthless. She was precious.
Please pray for the Holmes family. They need the Lord's strength in a very real way right now.
