Prayers from east to west ...

Today I write with a somber tone. I found out last night that a friend of mine from college has gone missing. His name is Elias Sorokin. He grew up in Carboro but in the past few years moved west to the LA area. He has been missing since Monday July 20th.

"... he went up to Northern California for a few meetings and has not returned to LA. He was last seen Monday evening 7/20/09 around 8 pm in Oakland.

A text was received to my dear friend Andrea (his good friend and business partner) on Monday night at 10 pm that he would be arriving back to LA around 4 am, Tuesday morning. He has not been heard of since.

We have now found out that someone has tried to cash a falsified check (he carries his check book on him at all times) and tried to use his credit cards."

Please pray that Elias will be found alive and unharmed. He has the kindest soul of anyone I have ever met. He wouldn't hurt a fly and is always wanting to lend a hand to someone in need. I pray that whoever has him or wherever he is, God will watch over him until he can return home to his friends and family.

I am posting these amazing hand engraved votive holders from daydreemdesign as a visual to Elias until he returns.
