Eric Bartel

Eric has experienced significant injuries following his accident on Friday, April 19. He underwent surgery on Easter Sunday, April 21 to fuse vertebrae C3-C6, as C4-C5 were fractured. 

We are hopeful for Eric's recovery, though know it will be a long journey to recovery. We believe the Great Physician can fully heal his body. We praise Him for the healing Eric has already experienced!

God continues to provide for our family through through each of you. We appreciate you prayers, love and support. We have been asked how people can help us financially, as there will be expenses in the coming days, weeks and months for medical expenses, travel, changes to our home for accessibility and possible automotive needs, among expenses we haven't even thought of yet. We don't know how much is needed, and yet we know that God will provide.

If you wish to contribute, know that you're helping us to more easily find our way to a new "normal". We will experience many changes on this journey and appreciate your support. Above all, pray for Eric's compete healing, for our family to remain strong, and our faith to never waiver.
