Car for the Metevier's Tragedy

My best friend, Ben Metevier, and his two sons, Jack (8, left) and Owen (5, right) were evacuating Tampa last Saturday when they were struck by a pickup truck which has left both boys with skull fractures, Jack with some brain bleeding and Owen in a coma. Things are very touch and go at the moment, especially with Owen, and there are three specific immediate needs that the family has:

1. Massive prayer is needed that Owen will wake up and that there will be minimal to no brain damage for both boys. 

2. Prayer and resources to help with the medical expenses. 

3. Prayer and a vehicle donation. The car they were driving was the only vehicle they had. 

The goal of this campaign is to raise enough money for them to buy a safe, reliable vehicle by the time the boys are eventually discharged (roughly by September 26th).
