Some things are hard to process.
Before school my mom woke me to tell me that our friend and church member was martyred this morning. Jeremiah Small, a missionary in K*rdistan, taught highschool humanities, English, and Bible at the Classical School of the Med*s. He was a faithful witness to his students, part of our community, and servant of Jesus.
I have so much confusion and sadness mingled in my head right now, that I can't really say much more. We're grieving for his students and his family.
Our hearts our broken, but our hope is secure.
