Horrific Accident

We are waiting for news on the status of passengers in a vehicle that rolled over a steep ravine yesterday.  A local youth pastor took a group of boys on a trip in a remote wilderness area.  He was killed in the crash.  Most of the passengers sustained serious, some critical, injuries. 

A young man from our church, Isaiah, was life-flighted to another hospital.  One single mom has two sons in different hospitals (3 hours apart).  Agony. 

This is a tragedy for the small community of Enterprise, Oregon.  The loss of the youth pastor is huge.  He was a rebel when he was in our high school Sunday School class.  But God grabbed him and gave him a servant’s heart and he has impacted many lives. 

Waiting.  Praying.  Lord, have mercy. 

I waited patiently for the Lord;
he inclined to me and heard my cry.
He drew me up from the pit of destruction,
out of the miry bog,
and set me feet upon a rock,
making my steps secure.
~ from Psalm 40

Trust in him at all times, O people;
pour out your heart before him;
God is a refuge for us.
~ from Psalm 62

  1. I just read your update on Facebook and am continuing to pray. Reading your blog post gave me a clearer picture of the whole sad event. God is our refuge and our strength! May you and your community and especially the families of all those young people and the youth pastor receive His comfort and His strength.
