It was just a regular December night at our home on the Shields River in Montana. We watched the weather on the 10 o’clock news and plodded to the bedroom. He-Who-Takes-Long-Steps led our usual prayer time thanking God for leading us through our day. We prayed for our family, name by name, and then our friends and missionaries. Then we prayed for those going through tough times and for a good night’s sleep. We did not know that was not to be.
