For God so loved the world, that he gave his one and only son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world in order that he should judge the world, but in order that the world should be saved through him. The one who believes in him is not judged, but the one who does not believe has already been judged, because they have not believed in the name of the one and only Son of God. John 3:16-18

  9. Nathaniel Farsdale,
    I saw you almost every Sunday and every Wednesday for most of our lives growing up. You were a bit younger than me, But I remember the first time I heard you share the gospel in youth group, I never heard you really talk about that before. But for your age at that time, I was so incredibly shocked by how deep and passionate you are. Honestly after hearing your testimony about what God was teaching you in your life and how aware and how intune you were of things, you definitely stuck out amongst your peers in a mature way. I also remember us playing carpet ball almost every Wednesday night for a while. It would crack me up cause when you would win, (against me at least) instead of yelling/screaming like your sisters 😉 you would just give me a little smirk and I couldn’t even be mad!

    I do not know what else to say that hasn’t already been said a hundred times. Please hang in there guys, I am so sorry. I do love all of you.

  10. My sympathies to your family. Your Grandfather, Arlin Bahls was/is my first cousin. Your Grandmother, Shawna is a great person.
    May God send his Love and Grace to your family.
