Greatly saddened today....

I just heard that Derek Loux has passed away due to a car wreck this morning in Nebraska.

This man had such a passion and heart for orphans! He and his wife adopted 3 boys about a year ago. And almost at the same time adopted 2 older girls from the Marshall islands as well, making their family a family of 10 kids?, 8 of whom were adopted.

He was a part of IHOP in Kansas City. The world has lost a champion, but heaven has gained a saint.

My heart goes out to this family, 2 days before Christmas. I can only imagine their sorrow in wanting him here and their rejoicing in knowing he is seeing his savior face to face! I will be remembering them in prayer.

God does't always make sense..... but He is always good!

  1. That makes me so sad...I will be praying for their family.


  2. Oh my goodness, that is so horrible. I also follow their blog. They are AMAZING. OH my heart is grieving, friend. Sometimes things make absolutely no sense.
