On Friday, January 4th, Noah Anderson (8 years old) experienced cardiac arrest while on a cruise ship with his parents, siblings, and maternal grandparents. He was revived, intubated, and sedated. The ship returned to the Bahamas and an ambulance took Noah to a hospital in Nassau where he received care while waiting for an air ambulance to arrive. The ship then proceeded to Miami, FL. Noah is currently en route to Miami Children's Hospital, where he has already been admitted.
Grant Anderson is the principal at Whitaker Elementary (Noah's school) within Finneytown Local School District and Sarah Anderson is the Children's Ministry Pastor at VCNW, in Colerain Township, OH. Their service and love for their community reaches far and wide. They are loved in return and MANY people have reached out to their friends here in Cincinnati, asking how they can help. The financial impact of an emergency like this would leave many of us devastated. If you feel inclined to give, please do! The Anderson family will encounter expenses that we can't even begin to think of yet, while they find their way through the next few hours and days. Above anything else, I know they would covet your prayers. Please pray for uneventful travel for the air ambulance, for peace and wisdom for Grant and Sarah, and for absolute peace and rest for their other two boys, Alex and Ryan.
