Sometimes, tragedy strikes, and parents get—well, lost. Grief and pain consume them until they can no longer care for their families. But, you can pick up where they left off.

After Zundiun’s wife died, he turned to alcohol for comfort. Eventually, he sold all the family’s possessions—including the fuel for their fire—to support his habit.

Pray for this young family as they huddle around their fire this winter. And, pray for their father as he struggles with grief and addiction.
