I’m heartbroken over this, Mary. I thought I was going to be sick when Jason told me he got the email last night. I haven’t been able to stop thinking and praying for them. Thanks for gathering prayer warriors on their behalf!!
Been praying since I heard, can’t get them off my mind. I have a dear one, almost 12, from China, and a teen son, and cannot imagine the loss or the horror their young man must be going through. A challenge to this family, for sure.
Oh that poor family! My heart breaks for them, most especially for their teenage son. What a terrible burden he will carry for the rest of his life. It was an accident and one that he will probably always carry with him. I pray that the loving arms of our Father will carry each of them through this terrible ordeal.
We have two daughters from China and are in the process of adopting a third. Through adoption, I have felt such a link with the Chapman family. Why, why, why? Such a futile question, yet I cannot leave it alone.
Lord have mercy on this family. Comfort them, especially their son. Thy will be done.
Our family is saddened by their loss also. We met him back in March as our family received his Show Hope offering during one of his concerts. He is such a great guy, so personable and loving, he geniunely cares for each person he meets. What a blessing he and Mary Beth have been for orphans around the world. They have helped many families give an orphaned child a forever home. We can take comfort in knowing that the Chapman’s have Christ to lean on during this difficult time. For whatever reason (only God knows) this tragedy happened, it was not an accident on God’s part. Let us all come together and pray for this dear family….
