We are all stunned by the death of our brother, Ben Pierre, on Monday, June 6. All initial reports of the incident indicate that Ben was accidentally caught in the crossfire of a street shooting. Our hearts and our help go out to Shannon, Ben’s wife, and their two boys, Ben Jr. (5) and Ethan (3).
Ben was a Christian, loved, respected and enjoyed by all in the Miami Dade region of the South Florida Church of Christ. He became a follower of Christ in 1997, and from that moment felt that he had been given a second chance at life. And that is exactly how he lived – loving God, loving his wife and kids, and serving and encouraging everyone he came in contact with. As one who truly appreciated the grace of God in his life, and who extended that grace freely to others, Ben would want those who had any part in his death to know the forgiveness and the peace that only come through Jesus Christ. He will be dearly missed.
On behalf of the Pierre family, we ask for your prayers and heartfelt support as we, their church family, unite to show them the love of Christ and to walk with them as they go through this difficult time.
