Today is my sons last day of school. He and a group of about 35 seniors went to a popular spot on the river to a rope swing. One of the boys went under and they are searching for him now. I will update as soon as I hear any news. Thank you for your prayers~
update**** Jesse returned home a different boy. His friend is still missing and the divers are working against the approaching darkness. Jesse said his friend seemed to have what looked like a panic attack midway the river. He started to go under and immediately the kids swam to help. Our rivers here are very muddy and in this case deep.
Before Jesse left the Dad had arrived and fell to his knees overcome with sickness. I can only imagine his pain. My stomach aches as well as my heart for this child and his family. They are withholding his name until all the family has been notified. He is a very loved friend and football player at his school. thank y'all for continued prayer. My prayer now is that they find this sweet child and the family finds Gods grace through this terrible time.
***** Around 10:00 pm Jesse's friend was found. I really have no words to say how I feel about now. How do you comfort a child that feels he could have done more. I over heard Jesse and one of his friends saying...."if we would have been a minute faster we could have saved him". This was not supposed to happen this way. I feel guilty that my child is home safe knowing a mother close by is forever changed.
