Pray for Missing Children

Hello friends and readers,

Today I’m asking for your prayers for my pastor, his children, and his family. Eric was granted primary custody of his children, Luke (11) and Cambria (10). The children were visiting their mother, Wendi,  for summer vacation, and they were to be dropped off with Eric outside a police department in Holland Michigan, on Tuesday. However, Wendi did not bring the children, and has since fled the state.

Wendi’s vehicle was last seen Tuesday morning outside her home; it was later ditched in Missouri, where some members of her family reside. FBI and police were led to Nixa, Missouri, and have not turned up any information there. However, they now have a lead that Wendi may have taken a dark SUV and driven the kids to southern California, where she has more family members.

It is absolutely imperative that those children are returned to their father as soon as possible. Here is some more information regarding the case:

My prayers are mainly for the children’s mental and emotional health after this ordeal. Whether Wendi successfully flees the country or she is arrested and the children are returned to their father, their lives will never be the same. A level of innocence has been stripped away from them that can never be repaired. There is so much anguish in my heart for the two of them. Please pray with me that the Lord will heal and restore and that these children will not wander off the path.

    Kim, I saw your post on the Babywise group about this. I hope that those children are returned as soon as possible. What really makes me feel horrible for them is that no matter what happens, they have got to deal with and heal from having someone (their mother, which makes it a bazillion times magnified) in their lives who is not responsible, safe, secure, or mentally healthy. Like you said, the emotional and mental healing is what also really needs to happen. I pray that they are strong and have many other resources to help them with this.

      Thanks for your prayers, Kristy. They have been returned to their dad, and now it’s the long, tedious, unpredictable road of healing. Miss you!
