It is with a heavy heart that we report that one of the dear students at Eisenhower, where the LIGHT! serves as the advisor to the IKE Care Club, passed away unexpectedly this week.
One of our young seventh grade students was suffering from depression and sadly, took his own life. He was surrounded by a loving family who had done everything to help him (he was on medication, he was seeing counselors, he was affirmed by his parents, etc.)
In spite of all the support he had this young man still didn’t make it.
Our heart goes out to him and his family. We don’t know why God allowed this. We all want to know how we could have done more to prevent this tragedy.
We hope and pray that this young man is in Heaven now. We will work with the IKE Care Club to be “salt and light” to help the student body heal even as they remember and honor this poor soul who had lost hope.
Please join with us in prayer and service. We covet your ministry alongside us!
