Somewhere, Out There

The Gospel text for today was John 14: 15 - 21. Jesus assures his disciples and us that we will never be alone. God sent the Holy Spirit to comfort and guide us. It's good to know that God walks with us through everything, no matter what. How great it is to know that we are not in this alone, that God is with us along the way. Knowing this offers us comfort, it offers us hope and it helps us to endure hardships.

Last week we heard the sad news that my husband's cousin was missing. Carrie Zucker was last seen on Monday, May 23rd, 2011 in front of St. Lukes Lutheran Church, 401 Scammel Street in Marietta, OH. Her picture is above. She has dark blue eyes, very short brown hair, she's around 150 lbs, 5'5"-5'7" tall. When she was last seen she was wearing a dark brown v-neck shirt, black capris and sandals. If anyone has information on Carrie Zucker's whereabouts, please contact the following authorities: Marietta, OH Police Department: 740-376-2007 or Parkersburg, WV Sheriff Department: 304-485-8501.

We would appreciate it you would pass along the word. We know she's somewhere out there...we just wish she'd come home!

Pray that God will hold Carrie is God's strong loving arms, pray that she might return home or at least contact her friends or family to let them know she's ok. And pray that God's love and strength will wrap around all those who love Carrie. Thanks!
