please pray for the laurie family
I'm so grieved at this news.
This morning, the first-born son of Pastor Greg Laurie and Cathe Laurie was killed in an accident on the 91 freeway near Riverside, California. The initial report is that Christopher Laurie, 33, pulled into the carpool lane not realizing that the California Transportation Department had just shut it down. He drove into the back of a Caltran truck, which was parked in the carpool lane.
Christopher's wife, Brittany, is pregnant with their second child. They also have a daughter, Stella.
Would you lift this family up before the Lord? Ask Jesus to make Himself known among them, and to give them the only comfort that can help them through these next painful days and weeks and months.
Pastors Chuck Smith, Raul Ries, and Don McClure are at the home today. Pray that God gives them words to share.
Harvest Christian Fellowship has a statement posted here. If you'd like to leave a note of condolence for the family, you can do so there.
Update: This post includes a link to the webcast of Harvest Christian Fellowship's July 27th Sunday service, in which both Pastor Greg Laurie and Pastor Don McClure spoke on the loss of Christopher.
