Last week I served at a funeral for the beautiful wife of John Arenas who went home to be with the Lord on December 19, 2010. John and his wife Mary Ellen were extremely close, they were always together, they were incredible examples of husband and wife. John took care of Mary Ellen with tangible love, to the very end, always by her side – something I will never forget. I just thought I'd post this so that you might remember him in your prayers, he really needs the Lord's strength to make it through and finish his own race with joy. Mary Ellen also left behind 8 children who could also use your prayers – the most important request, of course, being her hope that all of her children would be reconciled to God and her, one day, in heaven.
