You probably recall hearing some terrible news last week on your local news station. Alexei Bauereis was hit and killed by a car while crossing Spicewood Springs Road on June 7th. Alexei was only 14-years-old.
The Bauereis family is devastated but their trust in the Lord has been inspiring to us all. They emailed us asking for prayers:
‘Please pray for Alexei’s friend Alex who unfortunately heard but did not see the accident. Please pray that he feels the peace of God’s grace and understanding, that he is encouraged by the great times he shared with Alexei and that he is energized by the Holy Spirit to reflect God’s glory to others as Alexei did. Please also pray for the driver of the car that hit Alexei, that he may find peace and forgiveness after this accident. And, please pray for Anastasia, Alexei’s sister, with whom he was so close. Please pray that God will support and encourage her the way that she supported Alexei, that she may find peace and that the Holy Spirit will support her in her ministry to others and in her love of skating to continue to show the world her love of the LORD and the reflect the glory of God.’
The family will also celebrate his life this weekend at Grace Covenant Church. The ceremony will begin on June 18th at 10:30am.
Please keep this sweet family in your thoughts and prayers as they go through this hard time.
