    Unhappy good friend hit by drunk driver/leg ampu

    Hello, HCR...

    This happened Sunday night, but i'm just now thinking to put it on HCR...

    A very very good friend of mine named Caleb (we go back like 8-9 years, and I was just hangin with him on friday) was hit-and-'ran' by a drunk driver while helping a stranger push their stalled car off the street Sunday night after church... Here's the local news story/video

    http://www.myfoxatlanta.com/dpp/news...20110824-pm-pk

    He has sustained lots of trauma to his legs... His left leg has been amputated to the knee and they have been doing surgeries to preserve and spare his right leg...

    He is a semi-pro drummer who was well on his way to making a full time living/ as well as free ministry out of his gifts... He already works as a session drummer in local studios as well as freely drumming for the various churches and ministries he is a part of on a weekly basis...


    Right now he could use all the prayer support you could give... Pray for his immediate family, his fiancee' who witnessed the accident, and his wider friends/church/christian community. It's a tense atmosphere around those who know him...

    And most importantly pray for him... Pray for his current condition, pray that there will be no further amputation of his left leg necessary. Pray that surgery results would be optimal, and that by God's grace he would improve and do better than expected. Pray for his adjustment to whatever state he is in after all of this is over...

    Pray for his reliability on the sovereignty of God... And pray for his confidence in God and in His purpose for his life to remain steadfast...

    Also, if you can give, he would appreciate it if you could donate any amount to his medical bills fund. He needs something like $50K... Some HCR folks have already given just off of a post on fb, which is a HUGE encouragement! His fund website is found here:

    Thanks, fam...

    PS.

    Here's his FB prayer page: http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=239012096144287


    Also, Here are a couple videos of him doing one of his favorite things... Glorifying Christ through music...

    That's terrible. Definitely praying.

    Thanks very much to all those who are praying and those who are donating as well... It is truly a blessing and humbling to see the reaction of the body...

    From what I hear, he's doing well and is in good spirits... He's eating food again and doing some sitting up in a chair... I will have a better understanding after I visit him this Tues., Lord willing...

    Thanks again, family...
