I met Mr. Stan Reaves as an Uber driver in Tucson about 3 months back when I picked him up at the airport. He was on his way back home and as I drove we fellowshiped in the Lord and he shared his wife's situation. We reached the hotel and he called his wife. We had a word of prayer on her behalf. I had prayed for him and his wife everyday from that point on. I felt led to look him up a short while back. I just found out that she's now with the Lord. God bless this man of God and keep him strong. And God bless his family in rejoicing in the fact that they will again be reunited soon as the time draws near. ~1 Thessalonians 4 17~ Blessings.
