We express our Christian sympathies to Val Avink in the passing of baby M, one of the children in Val’s house at COTP.  Baby M was very sick and her little body was not strong enough to fight it off.  Pray for God to surround Val in this very sad and difficult time of loss. We pray for God’s loving presence to be a comfort to all who knew baby M and trust that she is now safe in the arms of Jesus.
