Support for Kyle Schulters

While away at physics and astronomy summer camp, Kyle (13 years old) had a terrible accident.  He was rushed to the hospital with a lot of internal damage.  He ruptured his colon, appendix and stomach. He fractured his 4th and 5th lumbar and shredded his right psoas muscle. To date, he has had 5 surgical procedures to repair the internal damage.  The doctors have estimated that he has 6 to 8 weeks before his internal organs heal. After the internal organs have healed, Kyle will likely have to undergo back surgery to repair his two fractured vertebrae. Because of the damage done to his psoas muscle, Kyle may have a difficult time maneuvering his right leg.

Kyle is an exceptional young man. He is well rounded, intelligent, athletic, funny, and personable. He loves the Lord and is unashamed of the Gospel. He is a leader among his peers. Kyle is a caring person who is always concerned for the well-being of others. He loves to serve in ministry and explore all that God is doing in him. He is humble, gentle, and responsible. Kyle is the type of student that every director wants to have in their ministry.

We are raising money to help pay for Kyle's medical bills and continued care. Once released from the trauma unit, the doctors will focus on repairing Kyle's spine and getting him up and moving again. Kyle has a long road ahead of him. He will need a lot of emotional and physical support in the upcoming months. We would like for his family to concentrate on getting Kyle better and not be overwhelmed financially. We are starting this "Go Fund Me" campaign to give the family a $10,000.00 head start towards covering the cost of getting Kyle back on his feet again.

For the past month, we have thought about the perfect way to say Thank you! The truth is,
There are no perfect words. No words can express the depth of our gratitude to each of you,
our BT family and everyone who has prayed and stood beside us. When we think of all the ways you have surrounded us with love, we think of the Hawaiian term, OHANA. Ohana means family first. In Hawaii, the term emphasizes the fact that no one gets left behind. And that is exactly how we felt and continue to feel from the very beginning in West Virginia. We received numerous calls, texts, gifts, songs and in those still morning hours, it was your encouraging words that carried us through. Some days we had so much faith that we felt we could move mountains and other days we felt so defeated. But your expressions of love remained consistent. When we returned to NY many of you wanted to see him but could not because of his own safety. Yet you continued to remain patient. We truly appreciate all of you!

Since Kyle’s discharge, we have stayed at The Ronald McDonald house, then, at our parents
home as adjustments were made in our home to accommodate Kyle’s daily care. A few days ago,
we were able to return home. To God be the glory! We are adjusting well, finding our new
normal and continuing to thank God for pouring out His Healing upon Kyle.

Thank you for every prayer you lifted up on our behalf. We witnessed God answering the
prayers of His people. Thank you to the pastoral staff or constantly checking in via phone
calls. Thank you to each deacon, deaconess, and leader who visited. Thank you to all the
BTKids workers who participated in the weekly video messages to Kyle (#kylescomeback).
Thank you to every parent who allowed their child to visit and to the kids who wanted to
Support Kyle through his recovery. A special thanks to Gloria Bridgeman for her tireless
efforts in keeping you updated, visiting and working behind the scenes to help us move back into
our home. Thank you ALL for walking this journey with us. We love and appreciate all of you.
Thank you for not leaving us behind. OHANA!

-Ken, Rhonda, Rebekah, Kyle and Rihana.

May the Lord now show you kindness and faithfulness, and I too will show you the same favor because you have done this. (2 Samuel 2:6)
