How Long?

In case you missed it, and you probably did with all of the celebrity death media frenzy, Chris Leggett, a Cleveland TN native, and member of First Baptist Church in Cleveland, was killed last week by Al Qaeda in Mauritania on June 23rd.

The funeral service and burial is today at First Baptist Cleveland.

While the world mourns the losses of its heroes, Heaven takes special note of this martyr who died because of his Christian witness in NW Africa.

May God bless the family of Chris Leggett, and may our brother, Chris Leggett, rest peacefully in the arms of Christ.

We should pray with all the Christian martyrs,  “O Sovereign Lord, holy and true, how long before you will judge and avenge our blood on those who dwell on the earth?” Revelation 6:10.

  1. How long, indeed!

    Come, Lord Jesus, come!

    I pray that the Lord will comfort Chris’ family, even as he is enjoying the great Victory Feast with our Lord in Heaven.

    Thanks for letting us know about Mr. Leggett.
