Please Pray for Andy

Pin It Now!
My friend Bako Jenn Murphy and her family need prayer. Her brother, Andy (pictured above with his fiancee) was in a really bad motorcycle accident on July 15. Here is an excerpt from their caring page with a summary of the situation...
Andy Smith was in a serious motorcycle accident on Wednesday, July 15, 2009. Andy was on his way to work when he ran into the back of a pickup truck that was stopped in the middle of the road. He was taken to KMC and then had to be air-lifted to the Fresno Burn Center at Community. He is currently in critical condition and 50% of his body has 3rd degree burns. He is estimated to be here about 4 months with about 1 year of rehabilitation.
Andy is a strong believer in Jesus Christ and we know that the Lord allows things in our lives for a reason. He is a very strong man who is loved by many. He is engaged to his fiance Katie and they are set to get married this November.
For those who you who go to RiverLakes Community Church or went to our Easter service this year... Andy was the man who gave his testimony on Easter Sunday at the Brighthouse Amphitheater. He had a strong testimony before the accident and we know that Lord will use this to make it even stronger and He will use it for His glory. Andy is a fun-loving person who has a passion for Christ and seeing others come to know Him.
We love you Andy... no farting on the doctors...

To leave comments for the family or to follow his progress go to his Caring Pages site. As I write this Andy is in surgery having his left leg amputated. Please pray for Andy, his family, his fiancee and the doctors and they go done this long, difficult, painful road.

I Peter 5:6 “ And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm & steadfast. To him be the power for ever and ever. Amen.”

Psalm 142:3 "When my spirit was overwhelmed within me, Then You knew my path."

Romans 15:13 “May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”

Acts 17:26 “From one man he made every nation of men, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he determined the time set for them and the exact places where they should live.”

Sorry to hear about this. I will be praying for Andy & the rest of his family during this time!

Wow, Wendy-- the Christian community sure is a small world. We prayed for Andy with my Grandma's Sunday School class in Bakersfield a few weeks ago. Someone in the class is somehow related to him, I think ??
We will keep praying!
