Our oldest son was in a serious farm accident last evening. He is ok but he has a broken tibia. He is home now.

We covet your prayers during this healing time. He sees a surgeon in the next few days and we are believing for no surgery and only a cast for 6 weeks. He is in quite a bit of pain.

He was so happy this morning that his first sow he raised from birth delivered 5 piglets. He is frustrated he cannot get outside to see the action. We brought a fresh one in to greet him this am.

Dear Father we bring before you this family. We ask father for complete of this young boy. We pray that you would heal his bones so that no surgery is required. You are the Great Physician and we humbly come before you and pray. We know you are mighty and ask that you perform a miracle on his bones at this time. Please give him relief from pain. And for his parents as well that you would give them strength now to care for him and give their whole family peace through this time of healing. In Jesus name I pray AMEN!

Farming is surely one of the most dangerous occupations in the world. Ten thousand little details are always just waiting to jump up and bite you. It only takes a second of diverted attention and...
Our hopes and prayers are with your son. Hopefully the only thing he will carry with him from this is the wisdom from the experience.
