Commentary by: Gordon King
Not all tragedies end in loss. God is good and is performing miracles in this time of darkness. This brave little guy survived being shot in the face by gang members. This miracle is an act of God. I send my prayers to this sweet child and his family, I also pray for those involved in the shooting, that God will turn their hearts to him that they may accept him as their Lord and Savior. Amen
