Last Saturday, February 7, our dear friend Andrew Mark went home to be with his Lord. Andrew never wasted his cancer, but glorified the Lord in it for the last 2 years, looking to God for strength and grace and joy until his Savior took him. At the end of my visit with Andrew last week, 3 days before he died, he asked for prayer that he would look for opportunities to serve God and others instead of looking at his own misery. Praise God for this man!
Andrew leaves behind his wife Grace and their two young children, AJ (4) and Gracie (2). Please pray for Grace and her children in these next days and weeks and months. Andrew and Grace both have wonderful testimonies in our Lord Jesus Christ and God has been so faithful the past 2 years to continually help them to honor Him in their struggles. I believe God will continue to bring glory to Himself through this family.
If you’d like to read Andrew and Grace’s story from these past couple years, check out their blog at http://www.graceandrew.blogspot. com/ or their website at http://www.graceandrew.com/. It will inspire and challenge your faith and cause you to lift up your heart to God in worship.
