Big Crash

Today we were involved in a major accident, here is our story...

We were about to arrive at the corner when we saw a big loaded cargo truck coming at us, David tried to get as close the curb as possible but there was really no place to go. The truck hit our back tire area first which caused us to flip around and then his back tire took out the front of the truck. Amazing that no windows were broken and none of us were hurt. We have minor aches but nothing serious. Rebekah, Abigail and Jacob were in the back seat. Needless to say our trip to town to buy shoes for them never happened. David just got home from the police station. The accident happened at 11:50 this morning and it is now 8:30. He is eating his first meal since breakfast. With all the pressure of all the paperwork, etc. he had no appetite anyway. Since Jacob hit his head, my neck is sore and David's elbow hurts we all had to have xrays to rule out problems.Tthe xrays were all fine. David had to have a breathalizer and blood alcohol level done, that was 6 hours after the accident! There was another car also hit but not nearly the damage we had. The red truck in the pictures is the one who hit us, he is very big, especially when he is coming at you fast! He says his brakes went out but some are doubting that, his truck will have to be checked out to see if that was true.

We are praising God that no one was hurt, it could have been deadly. It has been a great teaching moment for the children. We also have many opportunities to speak about God and his care. We are thankful that our lives are in His hands.

We could use your prayers in the next few days as the legal work continues. David will need lots of wisdom and patience.
