Shooting in Denver/Arvada YWAM base

The shooting in Denver hit close to home today.
If you haven't kept up, a guy went to the YWAM (Youth with a Mission) base outside of Denver, in Arvada, and wanted to spend the night.

When he was told it wasn't possible (they were full of students etc.), he opened fire.

Two are dead, two are critically wounded.
My friend B - who just got back from that base, is walking around church looking stunned. Her brother is still at the base, he was asleep in the dorm, so he's one of the "walking wounded" there.

B said she knows all four of the students, one girl, three boys involved.

Who'd a thunk this would happen outside of Denver. N (B's brother) is preparing to go to Afghanistan in January. There, we expect something might happen, not in Colorado.

Anyway, think of the students involved, the family members and the students at the base and throughout the country...lots of students, including B, just finished their training time there and are spread throughout the states....

    I'm so sorry to hear of the shooting. We prayed for the friends and family of the four YWAM students at Vineyard Boise tonight during our advent service. May God give you His strength, forgiveness and peace during this time of grieving.
