John Holcombe Family Funeral

One of my friends, John Holcombe, is a Sunday school teacher and webmaster at the First Baptist Church of Sutherland, Texas, the church where the tragic shootings occurred on November 5, 2017.

Nine members of John’s family were killed. John was hit in the leg and has been in the hospital. His parents, brother, three of his children, and pregnant wife were all taken from him.

John’s father, an associate pastor, was to preach that day. As he ascended the pulpit, the shooting began and he was one of the first to be killed.

John is an incredibly good guy. He married a widow with 5 children, took them as his own. Now, as he and Crystal were preparing to have their first together, this horrific murder took his wife and unborn child.

Friends, please pray for John, his remaining family, and his church. Please consider giving to this fund that will assist John with funeral arrangements and burials for the staggering cost of nine family members. Maybe in this small way we can ease a bit of John's undeserved pain.
