08 Mar Urgent Prayer Request / Update
Early this morning, Sunday March 8, while preaching at his church, Pastor Fred Winters, of First Baptist Church Maryville, Illinois was shot and killed. Apparently a few others were wounded as well. I consider First Baptist Maryville to be part of my larger-out of town-church family. FBC is the Church where I have spoken at and recorded my Islam DVD’s. I stood in that pulpit just a month ago. Pastor Winters is the courageous pastor that graciously welcomed and hosted me for these events. He leaves behind a wife and two young daughters. Beloved, please pray for Pastor Winter’s family, the others who were injured, FBC Maryville and all who have been affected by this utterly demonic event.
For those in the St. Louis area, a prayer service will be held tonight at 6:00pm, March 8, 2009, at Metro Community Church in Edwardsville, IL.
