We need to contiue to pray as shoeboxes are now being delivered to the children. Prayer Update: Accident in Abkhazia The International Regional Director for Russia/Europe/Central Asia recently communicated via email more details and an update on the recent accident in Abkhazia, a summary of which is below. The Regional Director, the National Leadership Team Coordinator, and two other team members were traveling along the edge of a mountain with the black sea below the road down a 300 yard embankment. As they attempted to pass a truck, their van lost control on a patch of snow, slid into the ditch and ended up back on the road, in front of the truck they had been passing. The truck struck the van and pushed them off the road down the embankment. “I don’t remember how we flipped and turned,” the Regional Director said in his email. “But I do remember a lot of banging and broken glass flying. I remember praying multiple times over and over ‘Lord protect me’, but I kept anticipating when we would eventually plunge into the Black Sea.” Miraculously, the van caught some trees which brought it to a stop and the truck stopped just short of the edge of the embankment. All passengers except the Regional Director had been ejected from the van, sustaining serious injuries including internal, head, and spinal trauma as well as broken limbs. The Regional Director walked away with minor cuts and bruises and was able to assist the other passengers as best he could. After they were all brought up the bank by first responders, they were transported to a medical facility that the Regional Director describes as, “no light, cold, old, soviet equipment, rough people…chaos”. The other three team members underwent surgery at this facility and were then transported to hospitals in Russia the next morning. The Regional Director concludes his email by saying, “It’s a miracle that we lived, honestly… God is amazing. Please pray for the other three team members as they have serious injuries and a long road to recovery Reply Name Email Website Comment Cancel David says January 28, 2010 Pray for the mission team to have a safe trip Brittany Lee son Malachi for his collar bone to be growing back the right way it was broke at birth he is going to be a month old the 31st of jan.

She had a blood clot that went into her lungs. The doctor came in last night and said she had multiple clots in her leg. She needs to go into surgery to have a filter put in to stop any more clots from traveling to her heart or lungs. Thankfully the one that is in her lungs now came apart before traveling to the lungs. However, they gave her blood thinners last night before discovering the ones in her leg. Today she is going into surgery for the filter. More news they received last night is she has cancer in both lungs. Her name is Betty Brown. Thank ya’ll for your faithfulness pray.

She will not be able to come home for another 10-14 days. Please pray for her and her family. Update 2/5/10: Auto Accident in Abkhazia The Operation Christmas Child Regional Director for Russia/Europe/Central Asia who was involved in the recent accident in Abkhazia has arrived safely back to his home in the U.S. Though he did not suffer any serious injuries, there were several local ministry partners who are still undergoing treatment. As you continue to pray for their recovery, an update on their condition is below. The National Leadership Team Coordinator is recovering from surgery to repair his broken tibia. Other injuries are still being assessed and he remains under 24 hour care at the central hospital in Sochi, Russia. The accompanying translator is also still hospitalized in Sochi, Russia with an L1 fracture of the vertebrae, 12 dorsal fractures, and serious bruising to his head. He also has a fractured sternum and neurosurgeons have recommended surgery to repair the fractured vertebrae. The driver and assistant to the National Leadership Team Coordinator is at home but is having a hard time breathing properly due to contusions on his chest. He also suffered severe trauma to the head. No other information has been provided about his medical condition. However, he has been summoned back to Abkhazia by the local authorities and is being charged for damage to the other vehicle as he confessed that the accident was his fault. His own vehicle was totaled and insurance will not cover the costs as his coverage is not valid in Abkhazia. Please pray for the recovery of these Operation Christmas Child partners as they go through some difficult times ahead. Please also pray for a quick resolution regarding the charges and financial challenges facing the driver. Reply Name Email Website Comment Cancel Sherry says February 15, 2010 Here is an update on the lady who suffered a heart attack during the mission trip to India. Please be in prayer for her and her family. Carilynn Causey, long-time TCWM mission trip veteran, experienced a heart attack while serving on the India mission team last week. Carilynn is under hospital care in one of the best hospitals in the Eastern Hemisphere. Within 3 hours of arriving at the hospital, she had been processed, diagnosed, received a heart catheterization, and was in recovery. She is in good condition. There was no blockage detected. She will need to remain under doctor’s care in India for the next 13 days or so before flying home. She is accompanied in India by Kay Cox, Dr. Joe Ross, and Betty Ross. Please, pray for Carilynn; and please, pray for her husband, Harry, and her family as they are separated from her during this difficult time. We are grateful to the Lord that Carilynn is doing well, and will likely be released to a hotel within the next 24 hours Reply Name Email Website Comment Cancel Robin Jones says February 16, 2010 Please pray for my sister Barbara’s husband Wayne. He is having surgery on the 17th of Feb. on his larynx, they found a large mass. There is a 20% chance that it is cancer, however the surgery itself is very long and tedious because of the location of the mass. They will have to cut one of his hearing glands for sure, but there are so many other glands and vessels in that area that are very sensitive. Please pray for Wayne and his family during this time and I ask that you pray especially for Wayne’s salvation and that the Lord will reveal himself to him during this time. Please also pray for the doctor’s who will be doing the surgery on him.

It was were she worked, and everything was a total loss. There were families in apartments who are now homeless and then there are the numerous people who no longer have a job. Please join God in wrapping His arms around Danielle and give her your prayers, financial help, support, encouragement and love.
