To my dear Brothers and Sisters of the Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, South Carolina:

I am heartbroken and grieving over your horrific experience and the loss of the nine beautiful brothers and sisters who were killed on Wednesday. Neither my heart nor my mind can truly comprehend that such evil exists in the world and that your congregation was the target of such evil. I am so very sorry, and I stand with you. Please know I am praying for you with all my heart. 

I love you and am asking Jesus to help us heal and be one in Him. 

Your sister and friend,

Here is the precious son of one of the ladies who was killed. His heart and grace make me weep.

Jesus died a passionate death for us, so our love for Him should be as passionate.
