    I'm overwhelmed with the burden of prayer for many coworkers and friends, so I'm sharing to lighten the load.

    First, we found out late Friday afternoon that a co-worker's brother (who we all know at work since he is a sales rep. for our printer supplies) was in a bad accident about 2 a.m. that morning. He was flighted out and in an induced coma because he had bleeding on his brain. His family didn't know until after 11 a.m. on Friday. As of today, he is out of the induced coma and doing MUCH better. He has no known brain injury - praise God! - but has to deal with wrist, jaw and other injuries and surgeries to come. His name is Bill.

    Next, an area camp (not the one we work at) lost a counselor on Saturday. All we know that I can share at this time is that he was a male, college age student and that he drowned. Please pray for the summer and full-time staff of this camp in Wisconsin (God will know which one. ;) ) as they deal with this loss. It was the end of their summer and I know that camp staff gets very close in a summer. This is hurting many people.

    Finally, I just got an e-mail this morning about a former co-worker in a bad motorcycle accident on Friday...I will just copy his CaringBridge site story here:

    Prayers for Bill and the camp counselor's friends and family. Praise and prayers for Ryan. Prayers also for God to give peace and strength for all the prayer warriors.

    Thanks guys! I'm sure all the families truly appreciate it!

    For the second story, it has now officially hit the news so I can say more. The young man's name is Alex Heidengren from Pittsburgh, PA. He is a pastor's son and was about to be a sophomore at Wheaton College in IL. He was only 18.
