Please Continue to Pray for the Gonzales Family

As many of you read in the paper, saw on the news, or heard from Dave on Sunday, Army Spc. Tony J. “T.J.” Gonzales from Newman was killed by a roadside bomb while serving in Iraq. I do not know the Gonzales family personally, although they have been attending our church, but I have been praying for them almost continually since hearing about the death of their son.

They need to know that we are thinking of them and praying for them. You can go HERE, HERE or HERE to leave your condolences and prayers for the family of Tony J. (T.J.) Gonzales. And please, don't forget to continue to pray for them. Write their names (parents, Tony and Marlynn and sisters, Tammy, Megan, and Shaula) in your prayer journal or Bible so that you are reminded to pray often. There is not enough that we can do to honor the Gonzales family and their son for his sacrifice.

God, continue to hold this precious family close and comfort them in this time of great sorrow. Give them the strength they need to go on, and let them know that they are not alone. Amen

If you have a loved one serving in the military, please email me with their name so that I can add them to the list in my side bar on this blog.
