Please Pray for My Friend

My good friend and Associate Minister, Stephen Bailey is walking in the valley of the shadow of death right now. Please pray for him and his entire family. I've copied the email I sent to our church family this morning below.

Stephen Bailey’s sister Leann’s family has suffered a tragic loss. Her family (Todd – Father, Leann – Mother, and children, Bailey 18, Hutton 16, Connor 13, and Regan 10) was in an automobile accident yesterday while traveling from Midland (their home) to Brownwood. Details are still coming in but we know this much so far – Stephen’s niece Bailey Brown broke her leg, pelvis and lost a lot of blood due to a compound fracture of the femur. She was care flighted to San Angelo and has undergone surgery and is in stable condition. Stephen’s nephew Connor Brown (13) did not survive. No one else in the family suffered major injuries but prayers are requested for Hutton who was driving at the time. The emotional recovery will be long for him and for all involved.

Stephen is flying home (they were in Idaho visiting family) and Stephanie and the girls will return home on Thursday. At this time, please do not call him but email is okay (ponder76148@yahoo.com). Please be in prayer for the Brown’s and the Bailey’s.

Thanks for praying for my friend.

I've just received the following email from Stephen:

I'm home from Idaho and will be going to San Angelo in the morning. Thank you for your calls, messages and offers of help. We are so blessed to have friends and family like you. Keep us all in your prayers.

Please go to www.gcrcc.org for information and updates.
