Baker Family medical & healing fund

On April 14 2016, Our dear friend Jim Baker suffered a life changing stoke.  He will be in therapy and out of work for some time.  Since then, Jim's wife Tracy has updated us all with his progress on FB.  As you are aware  this came as a shock to all of us as Jim is so young to have this happen.  This not only effects Jim directly, but it effects his wife Tracy and their daughter Shyloh.  With medical expenses and time off of work for both Jim & Tracy,  this will put a  financial stress on the household.  Jim will be going on disibility which only pays for a percentage of his prior income and Tracy will need more time away from work to take Jim to his therapy appointments.  Our friends closest to their situation thought it would be helpful to start a fund to help some of the financial pressures.   Any and all  help will be greatly appreciated.
Jim has a hard time communicating still and has a long road ahead of him.  So prayers are still needed!  But I will tell you one thing...after spending an hour on the phone with Jim yesterday while he struggled with words and sentances, Jim is STILL THE SAME OLE JIM!!!  The ability to make people laugh is as strong as ever.  He will be back having drinks with us all in no time!
