Please continue to pray with us for Mike, his family and for Jennifer's family - and for the many lives they have touched. .  May He bring about good from this horrible time, as only He can.  Though we pray for justice, we also pray for repentance and  salvation whoever has done this horrendous thing, whether it is Mike or someone else.  Jennifer is at Home with our heavenly Father, and just as He loves her, He also desires that  the person who did this to her come to Him for forgiveness and to accept His love.  God help us all to have His heart toward this person, too.  We continue to pray for Abby to be found...
