You don’t know me … my name is Paul Asay, and I write a blog for Purpose Driven Connection — part of Rick Warren’s ministry (he wrote the Purpose Driven Life a while back).
The blog, called Body Parts, is really designed to keep tabs on what the body of Christ is doing around the world. The good, the bad and the ugly. And every week, I try to give a little online “award” to someone who’s quietly making a difference. It’s called the O.J. Award — named after the Bible’s “other James” (a.k.a. James the Lesser), a guy who one can assume did fantastic work even though he didn’t get lots of notoriety.
I’d like to honor Aaron and your family with this award this week: Your story is almost unbearably sad — but inspiring, I think, for those who ask where God is during the toughest of times.
Let me not kid you: This is a small blog with a small readership … the ABC story will reach far more folks than my little online scribblings do. But, I’d like to think that your story will touch our readers and, perhaps, a few might be moved enough to send a bit of money your way.
My thoughts and prayers are with you all!
