Terrible Tragedy

I just received word today that Caleb Koke, the 17-year old son of the pastor of Shoreline Christian Center in Austin, was killed in a car accident last night. Apparently, he was driving home at 3:00am from an event and fell asleep and crashed into a tree. Shoreline is a great church in the Austin area which is making a huge impact for the kingdom of God. The pastor and his family are well respected in the Christian community in Austin. This is a terrible tragedy and so much harder because pastor Robert Coke just lost his father in a boating accident last week. Here is the information from the church's website.

Please keep this family in your prayers tonight as they grieve the loss of their son. You can see the official news report from the Austin paper on their website. People are posting comments for the family both on the church's website and on the Statesman's website. Great reminder for us all to hug our kids very tightly tonight - tomorrow is never guaranteed, is it? Our love and prayers go out to the Koke family tonight. May God shower them with grace and comfort in this dark hour.
