Grieving the Loss
Ron and Nan Deal lost their 12-year-old son Connor in 2009. The Deals discuss how they regained their footing, especially in their marriage, after experiencing such a tragic loss. Through a series of God connections, the Deals met grieving parents Randy and Pam Cope, who led them to the nonprofit Touch a Life Foundation in Ghana, West Africa. This fueled a dream to serve the children there and the Connor Creative Art Center was born.
