News Alert: The Murder of a Christian Man
We just received this from our friend, Franklin Sanders. Please know Vision Forum will be making a donation to help this family in their time of need.
Last night Michael Osborne was murdered in Hattiesburg, Mississippi. Michael was formerly my business partner, a co-defendant in our federal trial, one of my closest friends in the world, and a dear Christian brother. Michaels wife, Nancy, drove to Memphis with their two daughters yesterday because Hurricane Katrina had blown two trees on their house. About 7:00 p.m. Michael went to Lowes to get a part for his malfunctioning generator, which they didnt have. They directed him to another store in a bad section of town. Somebody shot him in his car, which then ran off the road into a telephone pole. Its not known whether the shots or the impact killed him.
Michael and Nancy have six children, two grown daughters, and at home two teenage sons, and two young daughters. Would you please pray for them? The funeral will be next week, after the coroners inquest.
I am sure that the storm has devasted the Osbornes financially, and the whole support of four children at home now falls on Nancy. If you would like to send her a donation, send it to:
