Many of you are aware that we had an awful car accident in Zimbabwe last Saturday on our way to Mozambique for holiday. There are a few accounts of the actual event and the consequential injuries floating around...facebook, I think there is another blog, ect. I am sure if you look at those you will get the general idea of what happened. I might write about it all at some point, but not today.
Seth, was severely injured. The doctor told me yesterday that he was within millimeters of paralysis and death. We are not out of the woods in regards to his neck and back injuries but we have a lot of hope. He is making progress daily. I have been so inspired by his faith, his love, his attitude through out all of this. He has been merciful, compassionate and grateful toward everyone involved and the situation in general. If someone makes a comment like "what an unlucky holiday". He replies, "I am the luckiest man alive." The other day he said, "it is what it is and its a miracle." That is true.
So many of you have been so kind in offering help of any kind. We have been so greatful for your prayers and love and feel them working quite literally. I am sure we will need a lot more help in the coming months. Currently we have received and are receiving a lot of help from members of our Church. They have been amazingly compassionate and proactive. We don't have a lot of concrete information now so it is difficult to know what kind of help we need just now. But there is one thing that I know means so much to us all, especially Seth. That is your letters of support and love. If you have a moment to write a note to him it will be cherished.
Thank you all so much. Love, the Sherry Jrs. alive and kicking...barely :)
