Ricker Family Update – August 8, 2017

Life is not fair. We were never promised it would be fair. If you read the book of Job, you can see it isn't fair.

While we can not compare any of our situations to each other, I sometimes I feel guilty when I ask for prayers. Especially when I know this families struggles and their hardships. But that isn't what God wants, He wants all of us coming to Him.

To see the rest of the update be sure to head over to the families gofundme page.

This family has been through a lot over the past year in a half. They just keep on praying, keep on trusting, keep on believing and doing what needs to be done. The community here and the DIPG community stand with them.

I am asking that you stand with them as well. Pray for them. Donate to them if you can. Share their gofundme updates with others.

The more people who see, share, know about their story, the more people who can stand with them and help them ask God leads them.
