Last month 3 men open fired on an apt unit because they were mad at someone who lived there over a set of car rims. Inside Velia "Belle" Ortega was sitting in her wheelchair visiting with the family and watching TV. She was shot in the chest. Belle was 78, she Houston's 1st Hispanic female police officer and had a beehive when I was a child which defied gravity. She worked with my great aunt for a while. My great aunt also had a beehive beyond belief. The 3 suspects in the shooting were apprehended. I know the Lord will take this evil and use it for His glory. My prayers are: the family can and will forgive and the murderers will come to know Jesus as their Lord and Savior and spend their days proclaiming the Gospel. They will probably spend the rest of their days behind bars, but they can be free in Christ.
