Naik Family Memorial


It is with a heavy heart that I humbly fall at the Throne of Grace asking for your prayers today.
It is difficult to even report this information, so please forgive me in advance if anything appears unclear.
The three children of Srinivas and Sujatha Naik went to be with the Lord late Sunday evening, December 23rd.
Their daughters, Sharon 17, Joy 14, and their son Aaron 15, perished in a house fire in Collierville, Tennessee.
The children had been attending a school in the USA and were staying with the Coudriet family during the Christmas break.
Mrs. Coudriet also perished in the fire. Mr. Coudriet and his young son were at home and survived the fire and are now out of the hospital.
At this time, we are seeking God’s wisdom on how to best support and love Srinivas and Sujatha. We graciously request that you cover both families in prayer.
We are so thankful for each of you and the outpouring of love and concern that many of you have already shown. The staff of GBBMI asks for your prayers that the Lord would use His Body to glorify Himself as we seek to love this precious family.
I want to share that the $50,000 funding for the immediate expenses has already been met.
However, you will find instructions below, if you wish to donate toward a memorial scholarship at ABS, which is a much needed cause.
We are grateful to God for already providing the $50,000 needed for all immediate expenses.

In His grace,
Willie Gomez
President GBBMI
