Please pray for my nephew

Please pray for my nephew Justin (he's 21). He had just gone back to Iraq again about a month ago (2nd time--he wanted to go both times). His driver was driving the Humvee way too fast and they hit a speed bump. Justin's arm was ripped almost all the way off (just holding on by a little bone). He is in Washington D.C. right now. They reattached the arm. He can't feel elbow-shoulder movement (but he's not sure if it is just because of the pain), but he can feel his hand. I don't know if it was his right or left arm. He said he is doing ok. It's crazy--When he was 16, Justin was shot in the back (an accidental shooting), then he goes to war and ends up injured in a car accident!

It is not all darkness Barbara. Justin

is alive. I have said a small prayer for his rapid a full recovery and I will say another prayer for him tonight.

I will also pray for you because you and your family need the positive energy and vibes.

Be strong.
