One Year Since the Accident!

October 15, 2014 changed our lives forever. After one year we celebrate Jon’s life!!

The accident knocked us down, but boy has it been incredible to see how God has carried us through. We praise God for all that He has done, He has been so faithful & He gets ALL the glory!!!

Thank you all for your endless prayers, love & care you showed to our family!!!!

So thrilled to see where God is taking us as we learn to trust Him more each day!!!

Here is the verse God gave to comfort me during one of the scariest times of our life. Isn’t He so good?

“Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.’ (Isaiah 41:10 NKJV)”

    Dear Jon, Addie & boys …

    Thanking God for you guys & the incredible testimony that, in His strength & by His grace, you have been & are still today one year later! May you continue to know His strength, His help, and the upholding of His righteous right hand. He is using you to strengthen the faith of many … probably way more than you know.

    Blessings … Sheila Seeman

    Dear ones,

    I have not posted a remark in a long time, but want you to know that your posts and emails continue to inspire and encourage me. (I am Lisa Martinez’ mom…and I am sure we chatted with you briefly at MTC graduation) I have also not stopped praying for you, and our Wed. morning women’s Bible study holds you in prayer regularly as well. Your reliance on God, your love of Scripture and steadfast faith are beautiful tools in the Lord’s hands. As you see your return to the foreign field getting closer, be reminded that not a day of your suffering has been wasted because of your transparency and faithful testimony which let us all pray with specificity.

    Love in Christ,
