Please Pray for the Lauries


Greg (of Harvest Crusade Ministries) & Cathe Laurie's oldest son, Christopher, died yesterday in an auto accident here in California. He was 33 and leaves behind his wife, Brittany, who is pregnant with a little girl due to arrive in November and a 2 year old daughter, Stella. The Laurie family has ministered and evangelized in Orange County and beyond for years and are long-time dear friends of our McClure family. They are full-throttle dedicated to our Lord Jesus and the kingdom of God. Please pray for Brittany, Stella, baby girl Laurie, Greg, Cathe, and all their family for strength and comfort through this very difficult severe mercy.

How tragic and sad... it sounds like he will be missed by everyone who met him.

Prayers to his entire family...

Ugh...this makes my heart hurt. Thank you so much for posting, though, as the body of Christ can rally around this family in prayer during this time.

So sorry. The frowning providences of our Lord are so often difficult to understand, but thankful this family has a deep faith and love for Jesus.

greg and our pastor are friends so we have had the pleasure of having him teach at our church. i love that he is on fire for GOd...and is so cut-to-the-chase about things. as our church prayed for them last night, i thought about how very close the family is with GOd...and yet how much closer they will be to Him after this tragedy. i thought about how greg's teaching will even change as he experiences God in a new way. GOd's ways are not our ways...and yet He is always good.
