I have since removed the donation widget, since the search is over and he has been found safe. Please continue to pray.
(dear brother in Christ who has been missing since Tuesday)
Hundreds of friends have scoured the DC metro area; handing out flyers and searching for his car. I have personally been overwhelmed by the love that our church members and others have shown in persevering in the search. I praise God that He has knitted our church body with so many people who have the wisdom, discernment - and even specific skills - with organizing the search. I praise the God who ordained these past few days is the very same God who called Matt to Himself. Who holds Matt even now in the palm of His hand and will never let Him go. I pray that Jesus Christ our Savior be glorified throughout this situation.
before the “gods” I will sing your praise.
2 I will bow down toward your holy temple
and will praise your name
for your unfailing love and your faithfulness,
for you have so exalted your solemn decree
that it surpasses your fame.
3 When I called, you answered me;
you greatly emboldened me.
4 May all the kings of the earth praise you, LORD,
when they hear what you have decreed.
5 May they sing of the ways of the LORD,
for the glory of the LORD is great.
6 Though the LORD is exalted, he looks kindly on the lowly;
though lofty, he sees them from afar.
7 Though I walk in the midst of trouble,
you preserve my life.
You stretch out your hand against the anger of my foes;
with your right hand you save me.
8 The LORD will vindicate me;
your love, LORD, endures forever—
do not abandon the works of your hands.
(This psalm will be preached tomorrow at our church)
