I recently wrote about how to make a family dinner idea that doesn't involve eating an entire chicken.My father is a vegetarian, so he was a big fan of the chicken at my family dinner.He's not a fan of beef, either, so I wanted to make my family's dinner more of a veggie-friendly dish.I also had some leftover beef broth leftover from a previous family dinner, so that was the main ingredient for th...
Father of five, Father of one and their two children were in a car crash while in prayer.
They died on the way to the hospital.
The children were just two weeks old.
They prayed with their family for the best.
“We prayed for our loved ones, but it was for them that we would be praying,” said Mireya Fernandez, the mother of the boys.
Fernandez has a 10-year-old son, Tania, who was born in the same accident and died on May 31, 2015.
“It’s difficult because you can’t be in a situation where you know your children are going to die.
But I pray for my children and I pray that they can go to heaven,” Fernandez said.
Family members say they pray to be reunited with the children.
They say the pain they’re feeling is just overwhelming, and they pray for God to give them a place to be safe.
Family friend, Daniel Diaz, who’s in the care of the family, said the family members are in a state of shock.
“I know the family has been through so much, and I know they are hurting,” Diaz said.
But it’s the pain of loss that’s really hard.
The children died in the most tragic of ways.
Fernandez says the family believes it’s because of their religion.
“The tragedy is that there was a religious requirement that they would be cremated, and there is no religious requirement for that to be done,” Fernandez explained.
So how do we know if we should pray for our children?
We know that praying is not the answer, but Fernandez says it’s a good start.
“If we are in the best condition, it’s okay to pray,” she said.
Mireya’s son, Teodor, is now three months old and lives in a foster home with his foster parents.
