He is recovering remarkably fast. He is now in a neutral country. Here are some specific ares for prayer.
- Swelling in the next 24 – 48 hours is common
- Phil will be flying tomorrow – long flight – this can be dangerous due to the fact that he does not have a breathing tube and the nature of his injuries. No FEAR - JUST PRAY!
- Phil would like to see his wife and “all the family” when he lands…pray as family tries to make this happen. The Army will pay for his wife and parents to fly in.
- Long term recovery
Here's a few examples of how God has positioned warriors to intercede for our friend..... We received the call and I sent out the request immediately. One of our local PWOC ladies is on the ground and praying...cool to know that God had her THERE. Because the incident was on Sat. churches across the nation began praying and prayer chains were activated. It turns out that another military man from the same small hometown was there....and able to talk to the chaplain and get word for family. The first responders are Christians and all prayed as he was immediately treated. The Doctor is a Christian and prayed as he treated our friend. There is no doubt that God has our back - but it is always amazing when we can so clearly see His hand at work on our behalf.
Thanks all! Keep praying. Friends and family appreciate it. (Yes, he has a name... but until I know he's safely home, I'd feel better not posting it on a public forum like this).
