Friday Evening Update

Heidi had some visitors today. She is stable and able to get some rest at times, but each day is bringing new challenges for her. Andi and Andrew will be bringing Megan back to Appleton and it will be good to have Heidi and Meg (her hero) together again. We are expecting some more dear friends to stop by tomorrow for support and prayer.

Erin and I were able to view what’s left of the vehicle they were in…it was a very emotional experience to touch and smell the wreckage. I was able to retrieve Megan’s backpack and a few other personal items. As often as we complained about that vehicle I have to say that it was instrumental in saving their lives. Seeing what they were pulled out of will forever be etched on my mind as a reminder of God’s grace and mercy to my family. I am so thankful for emergency professionals who knew how to properly care for my wife and daughter in that mass of twisted metal – those men and woman are amazing!

In addition to healing please pray for wisdom as we begin planning for many life changes in the coming days, weeks, months, and years. Health and healing comes first but the other realities are looming around the corner.

More later – thank you for all the love, I can’t reply but I do read each comment and we are encouraged.
