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!
