We recently held a funeral for a special 11-year-old boy who was part of our church family. He had a condition known as Prader-Willi Syndrome. He passed away from a blood clot after surgery to straighten his spine. The family couldn’t find a casket that fit his personality, so at their request, a couple men in the church made one. They spent about 50 hours on it, working in their spare time, and the casket was amazing! We held the service outside because the space where we usually meet is small. About 200 people came even though it was raining, and many stood because we didn’t have enough chairs. It was a difficult day in some ways but also a great opportunity to share the Gospel with many people.
