Urgent Prayer Request!


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 fiancé Katie and they are set to get married this November.

Andy is a fun-loving person who has a passion for Christ and seeing others come to know Him.

Katie is a good Childhood friend of mine. She is the most amazing girl and an awesome woman of God! I can’t imagine how hard this is for them, their excitement for the upcoming wedding couldn’t be masked, but she is very strong and I know that God will get them through this. He has a plan for them and I am excited to see where this lead them!

Please pray for them as Andy starts to recover. They were afraid they were going to have to amputate his left foot but as for now he has a strong pulse in both feet!! Praise God!

They have a long road to recovery ahead. Pray for guidance for the doctors, strength for the family and Andy, and comfort as the figure out what lies ahead!

Thank you!
