Prayer for Pastors & Others:
We have received the following from Everett & Valerie Mitchell. Everett is the man in charge of the sound at Mission Advance, Family Camp & Pastor & Spouse Retreat. Valerie is in charge of the salad bar at Family Camp.
Last Thursday evening, our son Eric Mitchell was injured in a work related accident. He is at St. Mary's Trauma and Medical Center here in West Palm Beach. God has provided miracle after miracle. He is doing well but recovery will take time. He has no broken bones other than minor fractures of his spine to the L2, L3, L4, and pelvis that will NOT require surgery but six to eight weeks in back brace and limited mobility. His right arm from shoulder to wrist suffered severe crush injuries to muscle tissue, nerves, vanes and arteries. He was in surgery three hours with six surgeons Friday morning, November 1 from 2 to 5 AM. He had more surgery yesterday and has one or to more to go. He does have full movement of and feeling in his fingers. He does have bruising, scrapes and cuts on his legs and feet. He is in good spirits and working hard at getting better. Thanks for your prayers and support during this time.
Please continue to keep R. Larry Taylor (Lead Pastor at Washington, DC Community of Hope) in prayer following a car accident and surgery.
