Blood Is Thicker

Please pray for my brother and his family. It’s been a rough few months. My brother, currently in Bible college, just recently got a part time job after being out of work since September, but it doesn’t provide insurance. Which becomes a big problem since he and his wife just had a new baby in December. On top of that that his wife and both sons are sick without medical insurance. So today while they were out taking their son to the doctors because of strep throat, someone broke into their house and stole all of their valuables.

Thankfully, no one was home at the time of the robbery, so no one was hurt. But the sense of violation and insecurity that comes with that are hard, especially for his wife, who is often home alone with the kids in a bad section of town and already struggles with paranoia. That and the fact that because they weren’t insured, they won’t be able to get most of what they had back, including Jessica’s engagement ring.

So if you have a moment, please keep Nathan and Jessica Gardner in your prayers.
