Remember Hersh - Honoring the Life of Brett Hershey

Remember Hersh - Honoring the Life of Brett Hershey: "Brett gave his life serving his country. Above anything else, he would have wanted you to know about someone, who like him, gave his life in service of others. That man was Jesus Christ. "

Brett Hershey died in Afghanistan fighting for the Afghan people and the American People. I posted on his death back in March.

His father Roger Hershey is a legendary Campus Crusade staff member. I have heard Roger speak several times and he has been a powerful and faithful servant of Jesus for all of his professional life.

His son had the same passion.

Roger and his family spoke about their fallen son at our CCC staff conference.

He asked, through tears, for prayers that the enemy would not gain any leverage in this to cause them to doubt the goodness of God and that they would continue to trust Him.

Brett was engaged to be married when he died. His fiance is going back to Indiana University to continue to share the Gospel in the Greek houses where Brett was an active member.

Even the faithful, suffer tragedy and loss.

Maythe peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, guard their hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.

Brett is with Jesus right now.
Revelation 14:13 And I heard a voice from heaven saying, "Write this: Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on." "Blessed indeed," says the Spirit, "that they may rest from their labors, for their deeds follow them!"
