Over the past few years Amy has run away several times, and she once again ran away a few weeks ago. She went with a guy who was not at all good for her, but was convinced by good, Christian family to live with them until things could be worked out. She was safe, everyone was relieved. Randy and Amy were always close, and Randy was able to spend some time with her talking to her, and encouraging her to come back home. He was very pleased with her reaction to him.
Yesterday some sad news came...Amy ran away from the other family with the same guy, again. Randy and the entire family is very upset and distraught over the situation. I do not know all of the details, but I do know that she is in a very bad situation and Randy almost cried when I talked to him on the phone yesterday. She has done a lot of things to hurt her family and close friends.
Please pray that Amy will come back to God and her family. Also pray for the Smucker family as they go through this difficult time.
