A request for prayers

Please keep our 17 year old nephew Jason in your prayers. On Wednesday afternoon he flipped his car and was ejected from it. He is in critical condition and is quite ill. Among his injuries: fractured skull, broken pelvis and a severely damaged arm. He will likely be in intensive care for a couple of weeks and then will face a very long recovery. This is the older brother of our nephew Michael, who was in a bad car accident back in September. The family could really use your prayers. To say that they are going thru a difficult time would be an understatement. I won't go into much detail (for their privacy) but my brother in law (their dad) is also pretty sick himself and is not well enough to visit Jason. Herman and I have been doing our best to support his sister but they live over an hour away and we both had to return to work today. We'll head up there tomorrow and be back home in time for Christmas Eve at my sister's. Then we'll go back up to his sister's for Christmas dinner. We'll take turns going to the hospital.

I'll keep you posted as best I can. Thank you in advance for your prayers. They mean so very much to us.

Peace.
