Maria Picazo, Executive Director, Abriendo Puertas

Two losses in less than a week. Another friend of mine died this morning. Maria Picazo was Executive Director of Abriendo Puertas, a local immigrant women's shelter. I served on the Board of the shelter and was lucky to get to know Maria. She died early this morning after a brave battle with cancer. She was such a fighter and such a gift. She will be so missed. Please pray for her and her family.

Chris White

Please pray for the family, friends and co-workers of Chris White. He is the executive director of the organization I work for. As he was walking down the sidewalk from a meeting yesterday afternoon in Wilmington, Delaware, he was struck and killed by a car. The three men in the car fled the scene and have not been found. They didn't even stop to see if Chris was okay. The car was involved in four separate hit-and-run accidents in minutes leading up to hitting Chris. Chris White was one of those good guys you don't often hear about. He was scheduled to take his daughter on a field trip with her school tomorrow. And was always talking about the treehouse he had built with his son. We have lost a good man.
