Family Emergency
« on: September 15, 2013, 09:52:54 PM »
Around 1330 MDT on Sunday 2013.09.15, my mother Jane packed her bags and disappeared from her home in Tooele, Utah, leaving behind her new husband and two of my three sisters (the third sister is in a mission trip in Guatemala and has no knowledge of this at all). We have no idea where she is, where she is going, or what her intentions are. I simply ask for everyone to give up prayers for her safety and safe return to her family that loves her.

Thank you.

Oh, no!

Lord, have mercy and keep Jane safe from harm, and assist her loved one's in finding her and helping her.
