Prayer Request

In case you didn't see it, my good friend (and regular commenter) Rich made the following request:

One quick request: My cousin Tim Evans, who is a PFC in the Marines and was stationed in Afghanistan, got hit by an IED over the weekend. He is a great kid who blew off a football scholarship to enlist. He was banged up pretty badly, but physically, he should be OK. However, he also sustained a severe concussion, and there's some concerns about long-term effects. Any prayers would be appreciated.

I am praying for Tim and I would request that everyone who reads this feature do the same.

Prayers are certainly in order. May the Divine Physician completely heal Tim, mentally, spiritually and physically. May He bless his service as well as that of his brothers and sisters in arms and keep them safe.

May He also bless the sacrifices made by their famillies. in Jesus' name' Amen!

Thank you for your prayers. Tim is doing better. He has been transfered to the Landstuhl Regional Medical Center at Ramstein Airbase in Germany, and is receiving physical therapy and is being monitored for long-term neurological issues. He should be home for Thanksgiving. We are told that the followup on closed head injuries has improved dramatically over the last 5 years, and he is in one of the best places he could be for this treatment. Right now, doctors are optimistic that there will be no long-term damage.

Thanks again, and keep the prayers coming.
