palmer has left the building

My dear friend, hero and fellow church planter has passed away. Mark was a beloved father, husband, son, brother and friend. I miss him terribly bad right now. I am angry. But I refuse to be without hope. Even now, Palmer's steady, calm strength envigorates me and pushes me forward. What our enemy, Death, does not realize is that this has simply fueled our flame of chasing after Jesus' and his dream for this world even more passionately. Death will not win here, ultimately. Death's fate is already sealed. You will lose. Yahweh wins.

I miss you, Palmer... so very bad. Thank you for being a part of my life.

Sleep well, my friend. Pray for us.

So sorry for your loss. I did not know Palmer except through some blogs requesting prayers and donations to his medical fund. Life sucks and is so freakin' painful sometimes. Pax, Adele
