One of the things you wish you never have to deal with happened. Our community here in Death Valley has experienced the passing of a coworker.
I really don’t have the words to express how it’s been. It happened. People were mourning. And now things are back to normal. But for so many people I know that it is not. She was a kind soul to so many people that I can’t imagine how her closest friends are feeling.
We held a prayer and reflection service. It was informal, and I felt so inadequate for leading it. I didn’t know what I was doing, but it doesn’t matter. God is in charge, and I know that He guided that time in the way that He intended.
We’ve had so many people praying for the community here in Death Valley. It’s been good. All I can say is that I’m grateful for the people I have around me and around the country.
