August 19, 2013, began like any other Monday at Uptown Baptist Church in Chicago, USA. As usual, I handled routine administrative tasks and worked on my sermon for the evening service at our soup kitchen ministry. The church employees were in the office working and chatting. No one knew it would become a day marked by tragedy.

On one occasion, my little girl drove me to tears. She opened her arms the moment she saw me walk into the bedroom. There was no doubt in her mind that her father was going to receive her.
