In The News


  • Kampala, Uganda - 74 people are killed in bombings by militant Somalian al-Qaida terrorists

  • Eleuthera, Bahamas - the "Barefoot Bandit" is arrested amid a hail of gunfire after 2 years of robbery and vandalism
  • My daughter is in Kampala.
  • My son in in Eleuthera.
It's only when we experience such peace-robbing tests that we can really know the truth of “You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast, because he trusts in you.” (Is 26:3). And God did provide His perfect peace as we waited to hear the details.

Thankfully, Lauren and her team are fine. They are staying 10 miles outside the city. This mom and dad are rejoicing. But there's a mom who is happy her bandit son got arrested, because it means he didn't get killed. And there are people who are grieving the loss of their children, spouses and parents.

So thank you so much for your texts, emails, and calls, and especially your prayers. Let us keep praying, and not just for safety, but for His peace, comfort and healing.

Wow, Susan! Nothing like His perfect peace! I'm thankful that your children are safe.

PTL! for intervening for their safety and for your peace of mind.

It's a big, bad world out there and we parents surely need to depend on the Lord to take care of our chicks, in every situation.

I am definitely praying. Every time I think of our five missionary kids who have gone out from our church this month, I stop and pray. And I pray for all the parents. As the mother of a daughter who was once a missionary, I know the fears, the joys and, yes, the peace of God that you are feeling. God's blessings on you all!

Hi Susan,

Thank GOD your daughter is okay (and your son, as well). I know with my son serving his 3rd tour in Iraq, I'm living proof that we can have peace in the midst of it all. Aren't you grateful? HIS peace is priceless!

Jesus give us HIS peace, not the peace of the world. I am thankful your children are safe.
