My First day back in class and I attended a Candle Light Vigil for a missing (possibly dead) Oglethorpe Student, Erik Downes. I was late finding out the news but I rushed right over to the Vigil to participate. Starting our first day of the Spring Session this way reminds me that "LIFE IS PRECIOUS".
I would like to ask my followers to please say a Prayer for the Downes Family as they travel to Costa Rica tomorrow to help search for Erik or to find out other news. It is reported that he traveled to Costa Rica with other students from Oglethorpe and he may have been caught up in a RipTide.
God always has a way of working everything out so I know Erik is in good hands. Praying for the BEST!
