Earnest prayer request
If you read my blog regularly, you've become familiar with what my co-workers have called "Kenny's Mexican family" ever since this little episode. Every so often Sylvia or Damaris/Daniela (whose name varies by context) or Daniel wanders through these blog posts. But, although I haven't made a point of it, you've probably noted the absence of Sylvia's husband from any of those anecdotes. That's because he went back to Mexico several years ago and hasn't been back since, although he and Sylvia have never gotten divorced.
Three or four days ago he was killed in a car wreck in Mexico. Both those kids loved their dad, and Daniel in particular was about to leave to go spend the summer with him (Damaris can't take a whole summer off work but Daniel's still just 15). Well. He went to his dad's funeral instead.
So I'd be very grateful if you'd pray for my friends Sylvia, Damaris and Daniel.
