Tragedy Strikes Church of the Missionaries

Last year we were blessed to have a group of ten missionaries come from First Baptist Church in Maryville, Illinois.  They did many projects which helped to beautiful and improve our campus.  Their efforts were a labor of love.  (see article Work of Faith, Labor of Love)

Trinity is grieved to hear that their pastor, Pastor Fred Winters, was shot to death during worship services yesterday.  Our prayers are with them and the signs of love that they left at Trinity only further connect us to the pain and grief that they are feeling.  We were blessed by them, let us keep the people of First Baptist and especially the family of Pastor Winters in our prayers.  Gifts to the the memorial to be established for Pastor Winters at First Baptist may be given to the school office.

May the God of strength and peace beyond understanding protect them during this time of grieving.
