The face of courage

Jon Meis did what he knew was right on Thursday when he tackled the active shooter at Seattle Pacific University. He saved lives when he used his pepper spray to subdue the shooter who was reloading his weapon.

Jon Meis is a young man of faith, a young man soon to be married. Well-wishers declared they want to buy everything the young couple has asked for on their online gift registry.

No need to look for faith-filled courage – Meis already has it.
