I have a request for those of you who are praying folk. The brother of two of my students (one former and one current) and the nephew of a good friend, Michael Barker could use our prayers. He was in a serious truck accident last Wednesday and is in the University of Alberta Hospital with a broken neck and a base skull fracture. He has no feeling below his chest but has movement of his arms and hands — though it appears that just last night he lost feeling in his hands. His brothers have set up a blog to keep people informed: A Brother Like No Other. Please pray for Mike and his family.
