Prayer Request

Please continue to pray for Adam who is still missing. Another email from my pastor who received this email from Adams dad.

Yesterday in Bible class here in BG, the teacher spoke of philosophy professors who will challenge students' faith with the question, "Why would God let bad things happen to good people?" Adam raised his hand and said something to the effect of;
"This world is a broken down and decayed house. My God takes care of us and wants to get us out of that house."
I miss you my son. I love and respect you... very much. I so wish I could have had more time with you here. I am very thankful for who you are and the 25 years you were here. I keep thanking God for you.

After speaking with the police, search team, and Adam's room mates, the heavy facts are as follows: Adam lives near the river, and has spoken at other times to his room mates about swimming in the river. Yesterday it was in the 70's in BG, and after morning services, Adam headed barefoot without his phone or truck, apparently for another swim in an area he apparently had been in before. Unfortunately, the river was swollen with rain, and the rapids and undertow were more powerful than he realized until too late. He was seen in the water, got stuck in an undertow and went under. The search teams continued to look into the night tonight. I am thankful for their efforts. As delirious as I would be with a rescue, the search is focused on recovery.
I am sorry for the pain this brings. I know many people love Adam. He has been a very special young man of great integrity, and he has brought joy to so many. I hurt for me, and I hurt for you who love him. But I am thankful for the blessing of my son, Adam Brent Smelser. 2 Thess. 4 - Scott Smelser
