    Heard the news as I was watching Jason Crabb hosts a night of TBN(doin a great job too bless his heart); and, I saw across the screen to PRAY for the Crabb family for they had been in a severe bus accident. I sobbed so hard and cried out to God; for He is our hope and strength. I don't know you each personally; but, we are ALL the family of God. You are my brothers and sisters, sweet ones. You minister to so many in song and testimony. I will continue to pray for you and any others who may have been involved. I just recently lost my husband by his own hand; and, when I heard of such committed children of God being in such severe need; my heart literally was overwhelmed with such burden for you and has continued to be. I just saw Jason on an old Gaither interview... seems like God is reminding us each daily to keep on praying. For prayer is where the battle is won!! Love and Blessings to each of you with warmest prayers sent along. Love you in the Lord, Tonya Brown, KY

    My heart broke. I love this family and have just been reunited with them watching the Gaithers. We trust our God--he is faithful. Jesus is our healer. I will share your burden in prayer. Turn your eyes upward and keep looking up while trusting our God.

    "He never promised that the cross would not get heavy, and the hill would not be hard to climb. He never offered a victory without fighting, but he said help would always come in time. Just remember when your standing in the valley of decision and the advarsory says give in. Just hold on. My lord will show up. And he will take you through the fire again." We're praying for Mike and Kelly and all the family. Stay strong and know there are alot of christians on their knees for you.
