Some of you have been asking for an update on the more recent developments in our community following the recent suicide, and the five subsequent suicide attempts by various friends of the deceased. I asked all of you to pray that God would protect this community, turning people towards His Son and away from suicide.
Well, your prayers have been heard. In the past week, there has been one additional suicide attempt, but it was unsuccessful. God listens to the prayers of His people!
But please do not stop praying yet. The funeral for the girl who did commit suicide was delayed, due to autopsy complications. It will take place this Monday. Monday evening, and the next few evenings after that, will mark the most dangerous time for this community. This will be the time when additional suicides will be the most likely. Please pray for this community, and I will update you again next week.
Yours in Christ,
First Baptist Church of Eagle Butte
