Over this past weekend, our nation experienced yet another tragedy, this time in the form of a mass shooting by an atheist inside a church.

Twenty-six people were murdered in cold blood, including a number of children. One such victim was Pastor Frank Pomeroy’s daughter.

The thought of losing a child is enough to drive one to the depths of insanity and despair, but not Pastor Pomeroy, Who despite his personal loss, continues to minister to the community.

Via TheBlaze:

First Baptist Church Pastor Frank Pomeroy ministered to his grieving Sutherland Springs, Texas, community during a news conference Monday while speaking about the death of his 14-year-old daughter, Annabelle, who was gunned down by mass shooter, Devin Kelley.

Frank and his wife, Sherri — who were traveling and not present for the shooting — addressed the media together and spoke of their care for their church family and of their trust in God.

Sherri told the crowd that while she and her family appreciate the outpouring of love and support received, she hopes that their personal tragedy doesn’t overshadow the greater tragedy of the community.

“News media have been bombarding us with requests to share and comment and appear to celebrate Annabelle’s life; however, as much tragedy as that entails for our family, we don’t want to overshadow the other lives lost yesterday,” Sherri explained. “We lost more than Belle yesterday.”

What an amazing display of trust and faith in Christ.

When will extremists and God-haters finally learn that you cannot fight against the Lord and come out on top? The more they attempt to snuff out Jesus Christ and His church, the more the gospel will spread. Nothing can stop Him. Nothing.

Please continue to pray for these wonderful people and their church family that lost so much this past weekend, that God would provide them comfort that surpasses understanding.
