|June 17,2013 heaven gained a remarkable man. A man that lived his life for Christ, a man that put others before himself,a man that saw the good in all things. This man was Chris Anderson, a husband ,father and my brother in Christ.
Im sure since hearing of this news you have all shed countless numbers of tears,and have said "I cant imagine this happening" or "he was so young". I'm sure you have lifted them up in prayer,brought meals and made visits. To me, that wasn't enough I felt that the Lord wanted me to do more, I felt he laid having a 5K in his honor on my heart. When my Lord speaks to me ,I will listen!
After speaking with Michelle and the girls, She said "they are all extremely excited at the idea". For a better understanding of who Chris is,or what happened,or to see a remarkable example of a faithful and loving wife please follow #pray4chris.
