Kelsey Smith, 18-Year-Old Brutally Murdered

Amidst the overblown news about Paris Hilton and the underreported news about the G8 Summit and friction between President Bush and Russian President Putin was the sad story about an 18-year-old abducted and murdered in cold blood. Fortunately, the suspected perpetrator was caught and will face trial.

During this difficult period, the parents will be grieving and attempting to reassemble their lives while following the lengthy legal process.

The Smith family will require support... and if you would like to be an instrument of the compassion of Jesus Christ, then here are a couple ways that you can support this family:

First, lift them up before the Lord in prayer. That is, of course, the most logical thing a Christian can do.

Secondarily, reach out to touch them with financial support. There are two funds established... you may wish to support one or both.

Those who wish to make memorial contributions can send them to:

Kelsey Smith Fund
First State Bank
PO Box 5188
Kansas City, KS 66119

Another fund has been set up to help the Smith family. Contributions can be sent to:

Kelsey Smith Family Support
Metcalf Bank
PO Box 4249
Overland Park, KS 66204
Seek the Lord to see what He would have you do for this family in their time of tragedy and loss.
