Orlando Massacre

By In blog On July 22, 2016


At just after 2 a.m. on June 12, Omar Mir Seddique Mateen opened fire at a gay club in Orlando, killing 49 people before police fatally shot him. Whilst the murderer gets the fame the victims are only remembered by friends and family. I have listed their names and ages below because each and every one of them were precious to God. They died because the world does not operate on God’s ways. They were saved because God, in the person of his Son Jesus Christ, died on the cross for them and us. He was murdered too, Jesus did not deserve to die but in his death he changed death forever into a gateway to a wonderful life we can only taste here. His death gives a future to victims of the massacre and to us when we die.

The victims of the Orlando Pulse Nightclub massacre, please pray for their families and friends:
