On Monday morning our dear friends Bryan and Rachel Gumpy were blessed with their firstborn, Charles. He was born 10 weeks early, and was quickly flown to another hospital. Bryan and Rachel got to spend three days with their little man. This morning he went to be with Jesus. My Dad and I, and our pastor and his wife, went down to see Charlie and his parents Tuesday night/Wednesday morning. He wasn't expected to live through the night. But he did, and all through Wednesday. Dad and I came home last night.
I have known Bryan and Rachel for three years. Before they got married, Rachel lived with us. She became part of the family. They are so young, not much older than me. It is very hard to watch them hurt.
We know that God will be glorified through this somehow. But it is hard. Please pray for Bryan and Rachel, and all of their family and friends.
For only living on earth three days, Charlie sure touched a lot of lives. He had thousands and thousands of people all over the US and the world praying for him and his family. I have never witnessed anything like it.
I have a few ideas I've been tossing around on how to raise money for the Gumpy's (for doctor/hospital bills, etc.). One of the ideas is a giveaway on here. To enter you would donate any amount to a PayPal account on my sidebar. If there is anyone reading who would like to sponsor the giveaway, please email me (my email is located in the left sidebar).
