Greetings, Fellow Soldiers in Christ,

Nan and I are in Perth, Australia for a Bible conference next weekend. Just this morning we learned that my nephew, Monte Jones, has died suddenly and unexpectedly. Details are scant at this time, but Monte is the son of my sister Sharon and her husband Lee Jones. He leaves behind his wife, Jessica, and two young children.

Monte was also the current director of Glenhaven Youth Ranch, and this will be a major blow to that work.

Please join us in prayer for those who most feel this loss, that the comfort of the heavenly Father, and the knowledge that Monte is face to face with his Lord and Savior, will sustain family and friends.

Thank you for your prayers,
