Diane, Grant and Matt,
Words cannot say how my heart breaks for you right now. Please know that your tears are joined with thousands around the country, and even around the world, and with our tears we lift up prayers for you.
I praise the Lord for the BSU and Mike, for it is he more than any other single person that taught what it meant to know Jesus, not just as Savior, but Lord of my life. You know he always taught us that the only things that were eternal are God's word and men's souls, and he lived out that belief by making eternal investments every day. I pray that you will have the continued joy of knowing, and learning of, the lives God touched through Mike's ministry.
The one thing Mike told me that I most vividly remember was that a person could not enter into God's presence and remain unchanged. That completely reformed my relationship with God, and gave me the desire to enter into His presence, and to be changed each day into His image.... And though he will be so missed, how amazing it is to me to think of Mike entering into God's presence Sunday, and being forever, completely changed!
My thoughts and prayers will be with you. Thank you for sharing Mike with the rest of us.
