Thank you!

Thank you all for your prayers. It truly is a week of Thanksgiving around here!

Update on the shooting:

It appears that two vehicles pulled up in front of my Mothers house around 5am and shot into the house. They then drove away. My Mother and Aunt heard a noise and discovered a shattered lamp in the dining room. They both thought there was some sort of electrical issue and that the lamp exploded. They cleaned up the glass. My Mother went to bed, my aunt went to her room to do her devotionals. At this point the two vehicles returned and opened fire on the house again.

I have another Aunt who lives next door who got a description of the cars and called police. The two vehicles returned a 3rd time as cops were arriving. Unfortunately at that point the police passed them and didn't realize it. However, they did not have the chance to shoot again.

As my Mother lay sleeping on her couch, a bullet came through the front window, pulled a flower and a branch off of the tree and then exited the room through an angel's wing and proceeded into the dining room where the lamp was shattered. I think it is amazing that that bullet missed her by about an inch and hit the angel instead.

The most amazing thing is that neither of these two ladies were afraid, they stayed here at my house because a bullet hit the electric fuse box and the electricity is unsafe but if they had their way they would've stayed home. They just kept repeating that the Lord had saved their lives and what a miracle it was. Thankfulness ruled the day!

So far there are no suspects in custody but I think they are on the right track.

Thank you all again for your prayers!

I'm glad your mom and aunt were unharmed. I will pray that those who did this will be caught and continue to pray for your family and your brother's conversion. May God bless you:)
