You Are In Our Thoughts and Prayers

Our thoughts and prayers are with Robert Hern, Jr. and his two daughters Betthia and Shaunese. His wife Maileen just passed away.


It is a sad day for us and our spiritual family in the Philippines. I don't know what it's like to lose a spouse considering that you want to grow old with that person and see your children grow up. But just thinking about it just hurts too much.

We share comfort in knowing the lovely Ms. Maileen is no longer suffering and is finally in the arms of our loving Father. We send thoughts of sympathy and support to the Hern family as they begin this difficult journey.

Her last Facebook status message was:

There r things I don't understand, questions I want to raise.But I should know my place and praise u instead. (June 28, 11:10am)


Seeing her choose to glorify our God in a time of pain and hurt has taught me so much today. Suddenly all my current concerns seem so petty. Thank you for the lesson Ms. Mai.


Peace, Prayers, and Blessings,
Robert and Samantha Johnson

Hugs Diane! I cannot even begin to imagine what's it like over there seeing the Herns go through this difficult ordeal.

See you soon.

I am so sorry to hear about your friends. That is a very scary thing to go through. So hard to even think about.
