Urgent Prayers

A tearful, heartbroken plea from my family and I. Please pray for the Ocuaman and Muthukumaru families.

A dear friend of my family, Minda, passed away last night in a car accident on the way to Louisville from St. Louis. She was driving and her friend Margie Muthukumaru was in the passenger with their daughters Jessica and Raina. Margie is in the ICU. Jes (Minda's daughter) had some staples on her head from a cut and has bruising on her body. Raina had a fractured arm, clavicle, and cut in her liver. She had surgery today.

They are all close Filipino friends to my family and I have grown up with them. Minda was like a sister to my parents and even helped start the Filipino church my dad planted in the early 90s. She was definitely a strong woman of God so at least I know she is up in heaven and not suffering. My heart is broken for this family and mine as they mourn this loss.

Minda's husband is Romy and also has a son, Junior. Margie's husband is Raja and they have a son, Shaan.

Please pray.

Hello, my name is Jerome and I was in her class at UMSL. I want to offer my condolences. She was a kind and good professor. I am sorry for your loss.

Thank you for your post. I am a teacher of both Raina and Shaan. It is a comfort to know that Minda knew the Lord and is rejoicing with Him in heaven. Minda's family is in my prayers as they deal with life without her - such a tragedy! I hope both Raina and Margie are able to come home at the end of the week as planned. Praying also for physical and mental recovery for all.
