Update on the teen from my youth group

I have had several requests for updates on the teen from our youth group that was hit by a car last week.

I am so sorry I haven't updated!

He has had a recovery full of miracles that can only be explained by God's amazing power and mercy.

As of this morning he was responding to requests, his breathing tube was removed and he is healing well! He doesn't remember anything about the accident, and there are some gaps in his memory and recognition that they are hoping are temporary (considering all the miracles God has brought out of this situation, I am confident that he will recover from these things too.)

Never again will I limit God's power to my little box of understanding.

Our teen:

should have died at the scene
should have died in transport from hosptial to hosptial
should have died in lifeflight to the third hospital
should have died during surgery
should have many more injuries from the impact than he did
should have more brain injury than he apparently does

The ONLY way to explain why all these should have's haven't happened is because we all prayed BELIEVING that God would work a full recovery in this situation. Never once did we pray "just let him". When we pray for God to use his full power to do all the mighty and amazing things that we not only know to ask for, but for all the things we DON'T know to ask for, he can run wild blessing us with YES!

Thank you so much for praying for him this past week, and we ask that you continue to pray for him in the weeks and months to come. There is still much recovery to go through.
