If you have ever been to The Wilds in N.C....you have been blessed by the wonderful staff there. Yesterday morning a DEAR DEAR DEAR lady, (the wife of the program director) went home to heaven after a battle with cancer. Please pray for The Wilds and the Matt Herbster Family..she left behind 5 beautiful children.
This was Matt's Note...
Around 1:30 this afternoon, Julie was promoted to be with her Savior. We are grieving at our loss, but rejoicing for Julie. She now knows about the things that are unseen. She no longer is walking by faith for she is with her King! God has prepared for her a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory. II Corinthians 4-5
Thank you for your continued prayers. May God be magnified. "My heart is fixed, O God, my heart is fixed: I will sing and give praise." Psalm 57:7
This family is such an encouragement for how to endure trials. Last night Matt went to a cold bed. His children did not get warm hugs or kisses from their mom. When they woke up this morning, their mom wasn't there. A month from now, there will be no mom, no wife, no sister or daughter to call and talk to. There will be a huge hole, but this family is not dwelling on that, they are praising God that their Proverbs 31 lady is Home. "No, she is not here, for she is with her Savior." She is Home.
Please pray for the Herbster Family. They are rejoicing in the present, even though the package was wrapped a little tighter and it's now empty inside. God has a plan for their life and for yours. Rejoice in the trials in your life. Praise Jesus! - RejoicingInThePresent
