Please be praying...

A fellow "HOPE" family who just brought their 2 precious boys home from Ethiopia 5 weeks ago suffered a horrible accident this weekend. Their youngest son Samuel is very critically injured. He is the same age as our Yordi and we were able to meet the brothers when we were in Ethiopia... This is from their blog:

Samuel was injured today in an accident involving the tractor. He was airlifted from the park behind our house to Children’s Hospital in Milwaukee. We need prayers.

Currently he is still in surgery and will need many, many more. He has lost one leg below-the-knee and the other they are trying to save to the ankle. One arm is broken near the shoulder but the elbow is more critical - open fractures with tissue damage/missing.

His pelvis is also fractured on one side. His buttocks and back are injured and he needs a colostomy. If he continues to do well in surgery tonight that will be performed now.

His vitals are good. He was awake up until surgery where we were able to kiss him.

They have set up a website where you can stay updated if you would like:


Please join us in praying for this family and for Samuel
