A young man named Joel (son of a church member in our congregation) was shot 4 times in a drive-by shooting. You can guess the city. Appreciate your prayers. Thank you so much!

This is awful! Will certainly pray. 

For those of us not in the USA, would you be comfortable telling us the city?

Chicago. That's no surprise to anyone in the US and probably not outside of it anymore. Beyond sad.

Praying and mourning our country's sad state with regards to gun violence. May Joel recover in full from his injuries and may his family be comforted in this trying time.

Meanwhile, Jesus kept on growing wiser and more mature, and in favor with God and his fellow man.

Or Detroit, Michigan.

I have an update on Joel. He has a bullet lodged in his brain. They are trying to make sure he's stable before attempting to deal with that. Way beyond my understanding but certainly not with God. Keep him, the doctors, and all his family in prayer. I do not know if he knows the Lord either, so that's a big prayer concern too.

Thank you all again for your prayers. So very much appreciated.
