Forgiveness?

My father was brutally murdered by 2 young men who were under the

influence of alcohol and drugs.

My father lived alone on the farm where I was raised. He was 90 years old

but enjoyed good health. We often encouraged him to go into a nursing

home so he would not be all alone, but he wasn’t interested. He lived about 2

kilometers from the village where he knew everyone and could visit and have

coffee with friends.

Early one morning while he was sleeping, 3 young men who were on drugs

or alcohol came into the yard to steal gasoline. The gasoline storage tank

was empty. They thought they should check the house to see if there was

anything valuable to steal. They broke down the door and entered. Of course

my father woke up and got out of bed to see what was happening. This

frightened the young men and they thought they should kill him so that he

could not report them as they had criminal records. They beat him severely

with a hammer and thought that he was dead and they left for the village to

spend the rest of the day with friends. They weren’t aware of the surveillance

camera on the property, and were arrested the same day.

My father was, in fact, not dead and drove himself to the home of my cousin …

Read the rest of Helen Liebrecht’s story in this week’s blog post. And be sure to

watch this weekend service focusing on the power of forgiveness!
