Sad news about J

As we drove back from Budapest yesterday we got a very sad message.  Church plant friend “J,” that we have been asking prayer for, has passed away.  He had heard the Gospel many times…our hope is that in his final moments he did realize his need for Christ and turn to Him in repentance. 

Thank you for praying for J for the last couple of weeks.  Please pray now for his family and friends who don’t know the Lord; ask that God will use this to bring others to think seriously about where they are in life, and that they will acknowledge their need for the Saviour and put their faith in Him.  Also lift up the believers at the church plant, that they will not be discouraged or overcome — there have been several other deaths in the circle of friends there — but that they will feel the comfort that the loving Father gives and will be even more courageous in their witness to their lost friends and family members.
