Condolences from Fredericton

Paul, the Missions Committee is quite simply speechless upon learning of the tragedy that has unfolded in recent days at the school. We are so very sorry for the senseless loss of your employees under such brutal circumstances.

We are heartbroken by news reports indicating that other employees at the school might have been involved. If the reportage is true, it compounds a very difficult situation for you and Caleb to handle. May God give you the strength and wisdom to cope and to carry on.

We are very relieved that the children were not harmed, but they must have been shaken to their core by this heinous crime on school grounds. May God comfort you all at this enormously challenging, sad time. And may the cook and the night watchmen rest in eternal peace.

Our deepest sympathies and our prayers go with you.
