Aiden Katip, the nine-year-old son of Dr. Bill and Debbie Katip, has died as the result of injuries sustained in a fire on Sunday. Below is a Facebook post from Dr. Katip, who serves as president of Grace College and Seminary. Bill and Debbie are members of the Winona Lake, Ind., Grace Brethren Church (Bruce Barlow, lead pastor).
The lack of oxygen sustained from Sunday’s fire was just too much for our grandson, Aiden William Katip. While the doctor declared 12:15 pm on 2/21 as Aiden’s time and date of death, we know the Lord had this all determined even before 3/11/09 (his birth date). Thanks to all our family and friends for your loving support and prayer.
“The Lord is close to those whose hearts have been broken. He saves those whose spirits have been crushed.” (Psalm 34:18)
