Two years ago I was in an auto accident and pronounced dead on the scene.  I came back to life and I was in a coma and in the hospital for 5 months.  I was put in a wheelchair and was told I was never going to walk again.

I truly gave my life to Christ in that hospital. He has taken me on such a wonderful adventure since my accident.  It has been a blessing to me, although I don't always see it.  He has taken me to the bottom, stripped me of all I thought I loved, and replaced those things with what is most important:loving Him, my family, and helping others know Christ.

When my accident happened, I had no health insurance.  After I woke up, I was sent to one of the world's greatest spinal cord injury hospitals in Atlanta on a scholarship that only 2 people get a year!  Thanks so much to those of you who helped me get there!  Then the Lord brought me home and put me to work with 7 of the most amazing people that I now call my family and love dearly, all at Vidant Medical Center.  They put me on a machine called a Lokomat that cost 350.00 and hour, a program I have been blessed with for over a year.  All I can say is, its been "Paid for by God".  They continue to put me on that machine, no questions asked.  God is just moving mountains.  Today was my 143rd Lokomat session.  God is looking after me, showing me what true love is, just between him and me.  And all it took was a wreck and for me to sit down see the glory of God.  I wouldn't change one day of it.  He is my only answer, my provider, my healer, my savior.

Thanks to God's grace and this therapy, I've gradually been getting movement back in my legs and feel I am almost out of this wheelchair!  I have had to learn that things happen on His time, not mine.   He has me on a journey, and that is to Glorify His Holy name and He just wants me to trust Him and watch how powerful He is.  I am now able to take a few steps in braces and push a little weight with my legs.  It's not walking just yet but that's all in the Lord's timing.

Two weeks ago I was called by one of worlds most sought after physical therapy facilities in California, called Project Walk.  They have seen my progress through the videos I made of me walking the past two years on YouTube.   Gigi, the program coordinator, said that they want me to get out of the braces and stand under my own power.  I am very excited about the program they have waiting for me but am unable to fund the trip and stay on my own.  I have been hearing about Project Walk since I woke up from my coma 2 years ago.  They are the best facility out there for physical therapy and their reputation is known worldwide as a place that truly stimulates healing.  There are people all over the world coming to the USA to go to Project Walk because it is known for results!  I told Gigi I just couldn't afford to come, but she told me she called because she thought I was a good candidate for a scholarship!  I submitted a package and have been accepted for a MONTH of therapy.  This is such a blessing if I can raise the funds to get there and stay for a month.

 After I submitted my package, I just sat there and just thought about how God has been so good to me. I had no insurance when I got in my wreck, but I have been to a world class facility in Atlanta, been given virtually unlimited access to the Lokomat, and now this scholarship to Project Walk.  Isn't that crazy?  If someone can't see the power of God by looking at what He is doing with me then their eyes are closed!  This isn't about luck..there is no such thing as luck!  This is grace.  It's a blessing from the Most High. 

So now I am working on a fundraiser to help me get there and stay so I can attend the therapy sessions and live in SoCal for a month.  Departure date is April 22, and my budget is $5000. All the therapy is:"Paid for by God": I just have to get there, find a place to stay and rent a car with hand controls.  I have only been to Cali one time, but Project Walk is on the beach just 45 minutes north of San Diego and 1 hour south of L.A.   I am so excited!  I am asking for your help, in any way you can. 

Thank you so much, and may God richly bless you as he has me.

Love In Christ,

 

Phillip Bryant
