I was reminded of this yesterday when I received this shocking news about a friend and young family in our church. This is the news we heard:
Last night Kasey Deckard was hit head-on by a drunk driver in South Beach. He was seriously injured and life-flighted to Legacy Emanuel Hospital in Portland. He was listed in critical condition this morning with both legs broken, one arm broken, a broken pelvis, major internal injuries and a ruptured spleen. He went in for surgery this morning, and our latest information is that he has been stabilized and it looks as if he will survive. Please be praying for the Lord's continued healing of Casey, wisdom and guidance for the doctors and medical staff, comfort and encouragement for his wife, Kelley, and a deep sense of God's loving care over them all.
My heart aches for this family. I know and believe that God will give them the strength to make it through this. Please pray with me for this family.
Thank you so much.
