"But in your hearts set apart Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give a reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect." 1 Peter 3:15

Please pray

I've never posted a prayer request on my blog before, but this is to important not to. An amazing young woman, and dear friend of my sisters and I, Emily Mekash, got in an accident today. While counseling at bible camp, she collided with someone during a game of basketball and hit her head on the pavement. She has been rushed in ambulance to the Hospital in Grand Forks, and there is a possibility that she could have fractured her skull. I believe that God has great plans for this young lady. Please pray for her healing, for her family and friends, and for Trust in a God who is greater then all of this. He is good and his love endures.

For all those who haven't heard:
I visited Emily at the ICU today and she was doing really well. She has an internal fracture in the skull at the base of the brain. When I was there she was waiting to see a neurosurgeon who would be able to tell them how serious it was, how long they might be there, and hopefuly get her into a regular room instead of the ICU. I got to talk to her and she seemed like her normal self. Of course she was on morphine for the pain, but otherwise the only problem seemed to be that she couldn't hear out of her right ear. So keep praying, but praise God that it seems she will be just fine.
