The parents of Alfie Evans have this morning released some tragic news: their little boy has passed away.

“Our baby boy grew his wings tonight at 2:30 am. We are heartbroken. Thank you everyone for all your support,” wrote Alfie’s mom, Kate James, on Facebook this morning. “We are heartbroken. Thankyou everyone for all your support,” added Alfie’s father Tom Evans. “Absolutely heartbroken. I love you my guy.”

We are sadden to hear this :(! We are repeating what we wrote on the previous article, Little Alfie is in Heaven with Jesus. Lord please be with their parents and family. Comfort their hearts and souls and give them peace beyond understanding. Let them know you were there and you are there now.
God’s hand is upon this child. It is because of the Lord that this little one is still here. God is in control. Lord let your GLORY SHINE!
It may seem this precious little boy is in the hands of others but God says different.
Psalm 139:13-16 NASB 13 For You formed my inward parts; You wove me in my mother’s womb. 14 I will give thanks to You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Wonderful are Your works, And my soul knows it very well. 15 My frame was not hidden from You, When I was made in secret, And skillfully wrought in the depths of the earth; 16 Your eyes have seen my unformed substance; And in Your book were all written The days that were ordained for me, When as yet there was not one of them.
God formed this child in his mother’s womb before he was born and before one day was yet lived God had written the number of his days.
Job 14:5 NASB “Since his days are determined, The number of his months is with You; And his limits You have set so that he cannot pass.
This little boys life is in the hands of God not man.
Luke 12:7 NASB Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Do not fear; you are more valuable than many sparrows.
God loves this child intimately and personally.
Romans 8:28 NASB And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.
God is the power of life and death no matter what happens, this child is in the loving hands of God and He will use the outcome to Glorify Himself.
