Last Friday afternoon a group of Abilene Christian University agriculture students were on their way to Medina Boys Ranch to participate in a weekend mission effort. Sadly, the group never made it to their destination. The bus was involved in a tragic accident injuring many and taking the life of Anabel Reid. Anabel was a wonderful young lady who loved her Lord, family and friends. She lived life with a contagious passion and purpose. Please join me in prayer for Anabel's family, those injured, the driver and the entire ACU and Broadway Church of Christ families.
Check out these two pics that were shared with me by one of Anabel's best friends, Emily Howard.
The girls in the Broadway youth group decided to create a fan club to support our summer softball team (Anabel is the Gattis Girl). Just an example of the way Anabel lived life with a unique flare for fun.
There will be many memories shared over the next few days, weeks and months of life lived with Anabel by family and friends. The days will also mark the beginning of a journey through grief. Through it all this truth and expectation is certain: Anabel is with the Lord and we will see her again.
See ya later Anabel!
