  • N.B

    To the parents,family and friends of Jaden.Reading this made me think of a brochure I read,where it talks about is peace possible?When horrible things happen to good people,especially children we wonder is it really possible? The answer is in Gods word the Bible. At Psalms 37:10,11 it speaks of the wicked one will be no more,but the meek ones will posses the earth. This means all the things we worry about as far as our/children safety,crime,sickness and a host if other things will be no more. My thoughts and prayers are Jaden and the Donald family in this time of need.
