Ministering to The Watts Family

Recently, Pastor Christian Watts, had an accident while camping with his family near a local lake. He has severely injured his shoulder and will require surgery in order to retain full use of his arm. During his recovery from surgery, he will be unable to work for at least 3 months, possibly 4. 

The family is currently in a period of transition, and while they do have health insurance, their co-pays and deductibles are extremely high. Christian's surgery is a scheduled for August 1 and he will be required to pay almost $6,000 up front before the surgery. If he delays having the surgery, even for a month, the nerve and muscle damage will continue to get worse and would require almost a full year off work for recovery.  Because of the impact of waiting, he must have the surgery August 1. Time is of the essence! 

Over their many years of ministry, Christian and Kelleye have ministered to, loved, cared for, served, and blessed 100's of lives. This is our opportunity to give back to them and help them meet this need as well as provide additional means for them to pay other expenses during his recovery. 

We know that many people have asked how they can help and what they can do for this family. It is our prayer that this will allow you to provide that help and support and that we can help lift this burden off their shoulder and give back what we have received from them - love, prayers, and support. And to let them know they are loved and valued by each of us.
