On Sunday, September 23, at about 11.30 am, Pastor Bruce Edwards suffered a serious injury while vacationing with his family in Delaware. He was knocked over by a wave and hit his head on the ocean floor. When he was pulled out of the water, he didn’t have a pulse. After CPR his pulse was restored and he was rushed to a hospital in Lewis, Delaware.
At about 3.15 pm, Pastor Bruce was life flighted to a hospital in Philadelphia, where he was diagnosed with an anoxic brain injury, as well as two fractures in his neck.
People all over the country began to pray, and we believe a miracle has begun. On Tuesday, Bruce began taking some spontaneous breaths on his own. Since then thousands of people all over the world have continued praying for complete healing in his brain, neck, and spine.
This blog is dedicated to that miracle. Please feel free to visit, read updates, and post comments to let us know you are praying and to share any encouragement that God puts on your heart. We are reading them to Bruce!
On Saturday, Bruce couldn’t stop talking to our family about the goodness of the Lord. He prophesied that this was going to be a great week for our family, and that it would be punctuated with God’s goodness. We keep reminding ourselves of a specific verse he shared with us while driving to our vacation:
I believe that I shall look upon the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living! Wait for the Lord; be strong, and let your heart take courage; wait for the Lord (Psalm 27.13-14)!
