This is very difficult for me to share with you. On Saturday, I was so very honored to officiate the wedding ceremony of Jordan Costa and Heather Favazza. Heather has, literally, grown up in our church. Nancy and I dedicated her as a baby, watched her grow through her teenage years, and become the beautiful bride she was on Saturday.
Jordan Costa has been a huge part of our youth ministry. He was a youth leader, and was the facilitator of our college & career ministry. He was definitely a handsome groom, with his family in attendance from his home out east.
I was called out of our first service on Sunday to find out that Heather and Jordan were in a terrible car crash while they were driving south for their honeymoon. Toward the end of the second service, I received the horrible news that Jordan had died. They had been married for less that 24 hours. Thankfully, and miraculously, Heather had no broken bones.
Our heart is broken for Heather, and the entire Favazza family. Sue, Heather's mother, is our young life director, and George is a huge part of our worship team.
I'm sharing this so you can pray for Heather and the Favazzas that somehow our Lord will surround them with His presence and comfort. Please hold them up to the Lord in this very difficult time in their lives.
Also, we are opening the chapel all day long from 9:00 am - 11:00 pm for anyone who would like to come and pray for Heather, the Favazza family and the Costa family. Please remember our young people, as well as Zac Weaks and the youth leadership team.
We don't understand......but we know that God is faithful, so our trust is in Him.
"The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are
crushed in spirit" Psalm 34:18
