The Chaffins need our help! Laura was in a boda (motorcycle taxi)  accident today and we want to come together and give towards Bryan and Elijah’s transportation costs, as well as cover Laura’s medical bills. Any amount counts! Please keep them in your prayers. Here is a message from Bryan-

Hey everyone, I have been searching for the correct words and way to go about announcing this, as to not create complete panic.

So, here we go...I received a call early this morning that Laura had been in a boda accident in Jinja. I will share pertinent details but really just ask for prayers right now! She has been (and still is) unconscious, although scans and tests reveal that there is hope to believe that any brain damage is negligible or should resolve itself! In any case, we are desperate for your prayers and so I ask that you please pray for my wife and SHARE this with as many people as you’d like.

Ultimately, God is in control and we are honestly leaning on His healing hand to come supernaturally and through the minds, opinions, and direction of doctors! Jesus is the Great Physician and I hope you will believe with me in faith that He is quickening Laura’s spirit and body to healing!

I will do my best to provide updates as they are available. Thank you in advance for your prayers!

We are all so BLOWN AWAY by the support for the Chaffin family! In one day we surpassed our goal! THANK YOU! What a blessing that they won’t have to worry about medical bills or transportation. Continue to pray for them, as we anxiously await updates about Laura. But we can rest assured that God is with her! Her family has arrived in Uganda and should have seen her just recently.

Bryan, Elijah, and Laura’s mom, Terry, are all on their way to Uganda! Be praying for a smooth trip. Hopefully with Laura being reunited with her family soon it will quicken her to wake up!

Update from Bryan-
Alright, a quick update on my lovely wife Laura.

First, I am completely humbled by the response everyone has shown. Prayers encouraging prayers, shares igniting more prayers, caring leading to giving! I mean, it is overwhelming on this side of your messages and giving to see such a generous and united response to this untimely news! I humbly say, thank you!

Second, she is doing about the same as when I first made the announcement: stable but unconscious. There have been some INCREDIBLE moments of progress though. She has been very active all day, turning and tossing and making life difficult for her nurse Also, she has responded to touch, sound, and has even opened her eyes a few times and made some sounds when asked questions!! Continue to pray that she will be awake by morning, but I have to believe that God is just doing a little recalibration right now! She’ll be brand new in a few hours!

Lastly, me, Elijah, and Terry-Larry Oliver are flying out tomorrow afternoon to be there for her in this tough time. Please pray for safe travels, good updates each time we switch flights, constant progress and healing, and for the U.S. Embassy to cooperate with our efforts to get approved visas for our two youngest sons, David and Jonah!

Again, thank you for your prayers and support! I plead with you, don’t stop now! We need them now just as much as earlier. Thank you for your posts, messages, donations, prayers, and faith for my family. @thechafricans are definitely a loved bunch!
