I received this email (shown below) on Sunday morning from my good friend Cynthia saying our friend Alison and her husband Jason lost their baby boy, James Taylor Campbell. He was such a fighter, born 1 lb and 9oz on Janurary 11th. This is an extremely hard time for Alison and Jason, and their families. We know that God has a plan for them that we cannot possibly imagine. God is SO good and He hears when His people call His name. Please keep them in your prayers and let others know to pray for them. This experience will forever change Alison and Jason and they need all the prayers they can get to overcome something this tragic. Lord open the eyes of our heart, I want to see you.
it is with a heavy heart that i write this email. precious baby james left the loving arms of his mother and was welcomed home tonight by the loving arms of his heavenly Father. he has no more pain or suffering. his broken little body is now a beautiful perfect body! God will we praise you in this storm! the book of james starts with "james, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ", and what a servant of Christ this little baby was! he did so much to glorify the kingdom...more than we will ever know! and while it is a happy day for baby james it is a tragic day for alison, jason, and their families. they are completely broken. please do not stop your prayers! they need them now more than ever! it is going to take God to get them through this! i can't imagine the pain they are in and will be in for days/weeks/months to come. please cry out on behalf of alison and jason! y'all have been wonderful! WE LIFT OUR HANDS AND PRAISE THE GOD WHO WAS AND IS AND IS TO COME!! BLESSED BE YOUR NAME!!!
