I just want to take a moment to respond to the overwhelming response to my blog post last week asking for prayer for the family of San Diego Police Officer JD De Guzman, as well as prayer for the SDPD and others in the community. I received hundreds of comments and emails that were very moving, especially those from the many police officers who took time to respond. Thank you for your kindness and mostly, for praying for all of those involved.
Many people have asked how they can help, and there are many ways to do so. Soon, I’ll let you know more about some ways to get more personally involved. For now, please continue to pray for the things I mentioned and consider supporting the family of officer DeGuzman and supporting the recovery needs of Officer Irwin and his family.
You can support the family of Officer De Guzman through the San Diego Police Officers Association’s Widows and Orphans Fund. You can give online here (make sure to put “Deguzman” in the comment field, or simply by sending a texting “DEGUZMAN” to 41444.
Officer Irwin and family can be supported by visiting this GoFundMe page:
Please note that while Officer Irwin is still employed by the city, this fund is to help cover family expenses and lost income during his recovery. More information is available at the site.
Again, thank you for your prayers and your kind comments.
