I received a difficult phone call today, letting me know our sponsored child Victor passed away. Please pass along my gratitude to the person who called me, I was in shock and didn't catch her name....she was very patient and helpful and I appreciate the time she took with me on the phone.

I am incredibly sorry and sad to read this news Kristen.  I very, very well remember Victor and his Grandmother from knowing you in the sweet days of OC.  My thoughts and prayers are with you and Victor's family and friends.

Psalm 34:18  “The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.”

Matthew 11:28  “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.”

2 Corinthians 1:3-4  “Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God.”

Isaiah 41:10  “So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God.  I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”

Isaiah 43:2  “When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you.  When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.”

Psalm 18:28  “You, Lord, keep my lamp burning; my God turns my darkness into light.”

Psalm 46:1-2  “God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.  Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea.”

Oh thank you sweet friend. I wish there was an OC to run to when news like this comes. My heart is broken over this but I'm trusting that the Lord had his reason for taking him home. Compassion said he died from complications from tuberculosis. I wondered why I hadn't been hearing from him, he'd been hospitalized I believe.
