I cannot believe I am writing these words.  My fingers are shaking.  I have been awake for most of the night crying, and have not really managed to make any sense out of what I am about to say.

Todd’s sister Nicol (she sang in Selah) had her second child on March 17th of this year.  His name is Luke.  
Last night around 9:00 central time, she went to check on him and he was not breathing. Paramedics were called but they were unable to resuscitate him.  
Our nephew Gregory Luke Sponberg is now in heaven with Audrey, just 7 short weeks after we lost her.  
To say we covet your prayers is an understatement.  
We are on our way to Georgia where they live, and Todd’s entire family is also coming as well.
I don’t know how to ask for specific prayers, but please, be on your hands and knees for Greg, Nicol, and Summer as they grieve.
“The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears them;
he delivers them from all of their troubles.
The Lord is close to the brokenhearted
and saves those who are crushed in spirit.”
Psalm 34:17-18
Thank you.  I will post again when I have more specific prayer requests.
