We Appreciate Your Prayers!

All is well! The service went so wonderful last night! We’re greatly encouraged by this! Your prayers were definitely felt and sensed through the evening …..

On our way back to our Airbnb, we hit a deer last night on highway 62 heading west from Canton to Massillon after we got some gas in Canton. The deer came out of nowhere onto the four lane highway. Katie and I saw it at the same time, and I immediately put on my brakes. The deer was pulverized. Thankfully, everyone is okay. Nothing through the windshield, but the deer did a number on our van. The pastor picked us up and brought us back to the Airbnb 👍🏻 and will be dropping off a church vehicle for us to use for the next couple of days.

We were able to exit in time after the accident and leave it in the parking lot at Menards, But the van is currently not drivable. 

I will be working on this today. Please pray for wisdom about our vehicle as we “mind the Lord” and see all that needs to be done. Lord-willing, we will know soon. I’m sure it will be a process and a journey. We are just very thankful that everyone is fine and safe! It is an excellent learning experience for our children. We talked them through it and showed them how there is no reason to worry or think too far ahead. One thing at a time. They kept saying, “Now we understand what you mean when you preach about this, Dad!” And, they also said, “It’s strange, but I have total peace.” Praise the Lord!!

I know that God already has it all figured out 😊👍🏻🙏🏻


  1. Praise the Lord, He kept you all safe! Praying for you all – grateful for the lessons God gives along the way.

    1. PTL.. it is just the vehicle that needs repair not any of you. Will pray for God’s provision for replacement transportation. God certainly is in control… Romans 8:28

  2. Only one comment that always sees me through. Nahum 1:7 ‘The LORD is good a stronghold in the day of trouble and He knoweth them that trust in Him.’

    1. Praise the Lord, For His protection around you all! We will lift you up to the Father for wisdom and provision through it all!

  3. Praise God that we can have HIS peace in any storm ! There’s nothing that can happen to us that God can’t get us through when we hand HIM the reins … Perhaps the people that are at the garage your vehicle went to need to be saved ? Nothing happens without a reason , right ? Much love and prayers . Keep on trucking and carrying God’s torch !

  4. The Lord was watching over you as that deer ran out and protected you but he was also watching your reaction and response to such an ordeal. We should lean on Christ in every situation good or bad. This is what your family did and God sent peace. Praise the Lord as he has everything worked out for us. God Bless! More souls will be saved through Christ by using his servant.

  5. Amen, Praise the Lord 🙏😇♥️
    Praying for you♥️

  6. Amen!!! Praise the Lord you are all safe!
    God Bless You and your precious family.

  7. God always takes care of his children and provides our needs.

  8. I’ve hit many deer when I lived in Wisconsin. It’s always unexpected and usually you see it happening faster than you can react. The main thing no one was hurt. If we never have bumps in our road we would never see God take care and provide for us in a personal way. What a great teaching and learning experience for your children. Cathy and I will be praying for God to provide. Thankful for your safety. 🙏

  9. Praying that the Lord will work everything out and the van will be repaired quickly! What churches are you preaching at in the Canton area?? Our church in Ohio is Fellowship Baptist in Canton Pastor Tim Brown !’ We are members of 1st Baptist of SW Broward here in Florida, where you held meetings ! We pray the Lord will get you back on the road quickly and praise his name for keeping you from injury

  10. Praise the Lord everyone is safe and doing well. We’re constantly praying for you and your family for protection and traveling mercies.

  11. Praying for this need… and keeping you and your family in prayer always. The bless you, brother

  12. I will continue to Pray for you and your Family. So Glad that everyone is doing well and very Thankful For Gods protection. Keep your hope in God and you will find joy and plenty of reasons to rejoice. May God Bless you and continue to give you peace.

  13. Praise the LORD for the Wonderful Services these past weeks and for Your Family’s Safety! Praying that God leads and directs in the Days Ahead! May God continue to Bless You All Greatly, as You All serve Him together! ❤🤗🙏🙏🙏

  14. Praise the Lord!!! It’s amazing how God uses something like this to teach us, grow our faith and bring us closer to Him, adults and children alike! I cried when reading this out loud to my husband. So grateful to Him that He protected all of you!💝🤗💒💒🙏🙏⚓⚓⚓

  15. I pulled this up after praying for your family’s continued safety on the road-and now praising God that He was ALREADY THERE!

  16. I’ve been there, but not to the same degree. Your collision insurance should cover you. Praying fir ya’ll.

    God bless,
    Brother James

  17. So glad all of you are safe. It’s not always easy to understand why, but we need to keep trusting. Praying for you. 🙏 🙏 🙏
