sorry the date is 04/05/08

Someone very dear to me died this morning. Ethan lost his life to a couragous battle with leukemia. I cant type right now

4th Update 12:11 pm [Ben] - This is the update that I hoped never to type. At 11:37am, Ethan left this earth peacefully in our arms. I apologize for my lack of faith and letting you down. I ask that you stand strong in your faith and please continue to pray for "Ethan's friends". I thought alot about this over the last hour orso, and I have decided to keep updating for a short time. I am so angry at cancer and I plan to dedicate my life to fighting it. We need your help to do it. Please continue to check the site to find out the next step. I am speaking for myself when I say this... no child should have to die because of a lack of cure. And I plan to find that cure with your help! PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE help me in this fight. I truly feel so lonely without him here, and I really need this to move forward. Please help me to beat this terrible illness.

Although the devils wants to convince me and you otherwise, I still BeLIeVe... PRAYER WORKS!!! And I hope that you do to.

I know that I don't like reading post as sad as this one - & the other hand - typing up a post like this could not be the easiest thing in the world to do ether.

But I want you to know that Admanda that the Ethan, All of the family & Friends will be in my prayers, so

My prayers are on the way to you from California.

You Just Take Care & Stay Strong, (Your BOC Brothers & Sisters are here for you)

Amanda,

My wife and I along with hundreds of others at my church here in Jonesboro have been praying for little Ethan and for Ben and Becky for a long time now. We are in a small group with David and Stephanie Kenley who used to live in Little Rock and are also friends with Ben and Becky.

We will continue to pray for Ben and Becky and their friends and family that will terribly miss Ethan. I know it's hard to deal with right now but I know that their faith is strong and God will heal all wounds.

I'm sorry for your loss.

Ryan and Amanda Reddick

Thanks everyone. I just have to remind yall, Ethan is not my son....he is the son of a wonderful family....although it does hurt....I know he is with God. I cant say in a better place...that place would be with his mom and dad......But I dont want confusion.....Ethan is Ben and Beckys child

Here is a link to Ethan's video if anyone wants to watch it. I can't imagine having the faith that Ben and Becky have. On Ethan's website, www.ethanpowell.com , Ben's latest post asks everyone to pray for the other kids that are at St. Judes. So selfless, if only the rest of us had that kind of faith.

This really does hurt us as well, we felt like we knew this courageous faithful family. We know that little Ethan is in the arms of The Lord at this moment and we ask God to give his family and friends the peace that passes all understanding and comfort their hearts and minds as only He can.
