Prayer Alert: Bus accident
The accident you may have seen on your news yesterday involved a church in Indianapolis that is of like faith with my church. It seems that the news is giving misinformation in their desperation to be the “first on the scene” rather than care about the accident.
Here are a few facts:
The bus was returning from a week at a Bible camp in Michigan. There were two buses. Only one involved in the accident.
Some campers in the accident were held overnight in two different hospitals.
The youth pastor, his wife, and another adult who was assisting with the campers were dead at the scene. The youth pastor had a toddler aged child that survived the accident.
Please pray for this church, Colonial Hills Baptist Church, this morning and for the next few days. While this is a time of grief, we sorrow not as others who have no hope.
I have the name of the youth pastor so you can pray by name on that one: Chad and Courtney Phelps.
Thank you for joining our brothers and sisters in faith as we pray for the church and families involved in this time of heartache.
The casue of the accident it seems, from the bus driver, is that the brakes failed on the exit ramp, the bus then went out of control and rolled over. There were 37 passengers. They were approximately two minutes from the church parking lot. Of those 37 passengers, three are safely home in Heaven.
