We can't help being touched by this situation. Not only are we linked to it via our church but Mizell attended the same seminary (SWBTS) that I did. I have friends and family serving overseas who face these very same dangers on a daily basis.
There will be memorial services in Richmond, VA (linked with the IMB) and Lakewood, WA. Please keep George and Peggy Mizell (the parents) in your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.
