pray

My brother- and sister-in-law were in a plane crash in eastern Arizona on Saturday afternoon. They are both in very serious condition and need all the prayers they can get. Their pilot friend, who was with them, suffered even more critical injuries and sadly, passed away last night. He has a wife and 4 children. We are praying intently for his family. We are fasting and praying today for Christian and Stephanie's full recovery. Your prayers are greatly appreciated. We need a miracle.

We believe in miracles. We have seen them and know that the Lord will be blessing you in whatever ways you all need. We will pray that they get well, and for peace for the dear family who lost their husband and father.

My heart is heavy for the Nielsons and Clarks, but I know that love and prayers and modern medicine can work miracles. AG

Thanks everyone! Already we have so much to be thankful for: The kids are well. The families have joined together to help in every way. Surgeries have gone well thus far. Your prayers are helping!

Sara I am so saddened about Steph and Christian. Before this all happened it was easy to think...o.k. seriously are these two people for real?? After hours of obssessing over literally every post and hearing more and more all about them and their love for eachother and there family I am comforted by the realization that indeed these two were quite extroadinary and that whatever happens these two will impact many lives for the better and they are worthy of miraculous things.

Leisel, You're right, they are great people, but also just like you and me: at the heart of their lives is the gospel and their family. It's comforting to me that such wonderfully normal people have such an impact on so many others. Think of all the things the rest of us "normal" people can, and should be doing.
