Divine Providence - Part 1 (9 of 40)
On November 2, 2005 Jeffery Schrock was driving south on Highway 395 outside of Spokane in his pickup with his five children when a pickup headed north crossed the grassy median and hit his truck head-on.
Pronounced dead at the scene were Carmen age 12, Jana age 10,
Carinna age 8, Jerryl age 5 and Craig who was 2. The children were wearing their seat belts, but because the crash was so sever

The father was in serious condition at Sacred Heart Medical Center in Spokane. The family were members of the small Pine Grove Mennonite community about 45 minutes north of Spokane. The
community gathered to support Carolyn Schrock, the children's mother who was due with their sixth child next month.

Charles Spurgeon (late 1800's) said, "The Sovereignty of God
is the pillow upon which the child of God rests his head at night,
giving perfect peace." We can have peace because we know that
God is in complete control of everything that happens in our lives.
