Matthew and I were in DC for the past few days. I had a business trip for Strength for Service and Matthew came along to help my very pregnant self. It was such a blessing to have him along.
Tuesday night Angie called at about 10:30 EST bawling. She didn’t know much, but said that Todd’s sister’s new baby son, Luke, wasn’t breathing, and asked that we please pray. She cried out “we can’t lose another baby.” Just thinking back gives me chills and brings tears to my eyes. Despite resuscitation efforts, Luke passed away, just 7 weeks after the Smiths lost Audrey.
I can’t help but groan to the Lord and ask, WHY?! What in the world Lord? Why take another baby from this family who has already lost so much and experienced so much heartache? I don’t understand. It just is incomprehensible to me.
About a month ago, the Smiths were interviewed for my church and Todd sang I Surrender All. Below is the video of him singing. The powerful words ministered and continue to minister much to me.
Please listen to the song and pray for the Sponbergs and the Smiths. For specific prayer requests, please visit Angie’s blog.
