Josh Ashley and his wife Katie live in the small town of Milton Freewater, Oregon with their young daughter. Josh and Katie serve as youth pastor for Valley Christian Center, and he also works as an electrician. On Thursday, July 20, 2017, Josh broke his neck in a freak accident while serving as a counselor at church camp. The doctors told Josh's family when he was airlifted to Portland, it was a miracle that he didn't die on impact or paralyzed from the neck down. The doctors cannot do surgery because the C1 was split in half. He has to wear a neck brace for no less than 3 months and it will take 9 months to a year for healing. The company Josh works for did not have short or long term insurance. Additionally his health insurance has a VERY high deductible. Josh is the main bread winner in his family. Will you please help this couple stay afloat during Josh's recovery time. All monies will be directly deposited to Josh's bank account to help pay for medical expenses and loss of wages. Thank you in advance, and may God bless you.
