a heavy heart

Last night, Chris and I received a devastating email that an entire family in our church had been killed tragically in a plane crash on Saturday evening. The father, Fred, was piloting the plane when he lost one of the engines and tried to make an emeregency landing in Alabama. Fred, his wife, and 5 of their children were all killed in the crash. They have a 16 year old daughter who was not on the plane. Please pray for their family and for our church family and Niceville community as everyone learns of their passing.

We never knew the Teutenberg's, but knew Fred's face as he played the bass guitar every Sunday morning in our worship service. From everything that we have been told, he was an amazing man of God and will be terribly missed. Praise the Lord that he (and prayerfully, his family) are now in the presence of our God.

Life is so short.

Please continue to pray for those left behind.
