This page has been created to help support Pastor Jason Newby and His family (Wife- Jodi Newby and Children- Kyli and Dawson Newby).  Pastor Newby was involved in a tanker explosion today (April 3, 2015) in Oklahoma along I35.  Pastor Jason not only is the youth pastor for Evangelical Free Church of Eaton Colorado, but he also is a Pit Pastor for Team Faith Action Sports Ministry.  Pastor Jason was driving the Team Faith rig from Texas to Colorado.  There was an accident involving a tanker truck and a grain truck on I35 in Oklahoma.  Jason stopped to render aid.  While rendering aid the tanker exploded.  The tanker driver sadly lost his life and Pastor Jason has suffered serious injury to his leg, neck, and head.  We are asking for prayers and support for the Newby family!  As many of you know hospital stays, emergency surgeries, flights for his family, rehab, and time off from work can cause a huge financial burden.  Anything, will be a blessing.  Please pray for Pastor Jason’s leg to be saved!  This is the primary concern at the moment and updates will be added to the page as we receive them.  We are asking for prayer that the debris in Pastor Jason’s neck and head has only caused cosmetic damage and that all of his injuries will be completely healed in the name of Jesus!  We are also asking for prayers of protection to be over Pastor Jason’s family as they travel from Colorado to Oklahoma.  Please share this page using every avenue possible.  Pastor Jason has poured so much into all of our lives.  His entire family lives life with a servant’s heart.  Now they need us to serve them!

We just spoke with Kyli (Pastor Jason's daughter) and have the latest update. First we want to thank everybody for your generous support. We can’t even begin to express how thankful we are for your prayers and loving words. We know the Newby’s are being encouraged and enveloped in God’s love. So, thank you!
First, I want to update y’all about the injuries. Pastor Newby’s right femur has a rod running the entire length of the bone. There are two screws in his hip and two screws in his knee to secure the rod. There is a portion of his femur bone that is completely missing. Therefore, he has been ordered to put no weight on his right leg for a minimum of 6 weeks. His leg also has a very large open flesh wound on his upper thigh. The wound has been partially closed, but has a tube inserted for drainage. The rest of his body is fine other than bumps and bruises. Pastor Newby was weaned off of his IV pain medication this morning and is currently in massive amounts of pain.
The current time line of events is as follows. They will check his wounds again on Tuesday to asses if they are healing properly. If they are not healing to the doctor’s satisfaction then a cosmetic surgeon will be consulted so that skin grafts can be performed. There has been no mention of a projected release date due to the seriousness of his injuries.
The current prayer request are for relief from pain (the physical therapist have to keep his hip and knee moving and it is an unbearable amount of pain). Prayer for protection from blood clotting and infection. Prayer for the physical strength to get through the therapy sessions. Prayers for rest for Pastor Newby and wife Jodi (both of whom have had no sleep). Prayer for the bone to not reject the rod and to begin healing properly along with proper healing of the flesh wound.
We want to share our praise to God and the mercy He has shown the Newby family through the local community. A local pastor named Rob Hunt from Henderson Hills Baptist Church saw the news coverage of the accident and has been at the hospital to support the Newby family during this time. He has so selflessly been giving his time and love. The physical therapy sessions are so excruciatingly painful that Jodi cannot be in the room. Pastor Rob Hunt has stepped in and accompanied Pastor Newby during these therapy sessions. He has also been a huge support to Dawson during the events unfolding. We send our prayers and thanks to Rob Hunt, his family, and the entire Henderson Hills Baptist Church.

Just a quick update... But first let me say thanks once again. As bills begin to come in I can't describe the peace of mind that this account brings. The first bill we got was a $33,000 helicopter bill. We just laughed when we got it... Ha ha... What's a helicopter cost anyway??? We do have insurance, but are expecting my bills to climb into the hundreds of thousands... No clue what our out of pocket expenses will be, but we are confident God will work it out for His glory! I am healing well. I have had enough of the laying around. That being said I spent the last 10 days traveling with Team Faith. I was able to share my story during the Team Faith Chapel Dinner in Fresno, Rider Meeting Devo in Las Vegas and countless one on one conversations throughout the West Coast! I love telling people of Gods incredible goodness and hand of protection. I also accompanied the guys for some training in So Cal, and wrapped up the season at the National Championships in Las Vegas. I still have very limited mobility, and some decent pain, but the wound its self is pretty much healed. I get around pretty good with the help of my crutches, and wheel chair for long distance travel! The nerve that goes down the inside of your leg, the Siatic Nerve I believe, was pretty much destroyed. They did what they could to repair it. Honestly the bulk of my constant discomfort is not from my destroyed femur or the cantaloupe size wound area... It's actually my lower calf and ankle which was essentially untouched. I guess it's that nerve going crazy! Either way it's all good! I'm very thankful! I have another appointment May 11. If everything looks good I cam begin to start trying to walk on it. I already know I can walk on it... Don't ask how I know that, but I know! Well I guess that was far from a quick update! Sorry, but once again, thank you! Thank you for letting God love us and provide for our needs through you! God bless you and your families!

Let me start by saying that my family is praying for your complete healing, and for peace and comfort for your family during this time. I also wanted to say thank you for trying to save Pete. He was a good family man, and a joy to work with, and his family is in our prayers as well. God Bless

Words cannot begin to express my gratitude! I am beyond humbled by everyone's love and generosity. I have no idea what the next days will hold, but I know He is good! I know He loves me, He has shown that love even through you all! I know I can endure all things through Him! By His strength not mine. The pain at times is beyond unbearable, but I thank God for it all! It reminds me I'm alive! It reminds me of His grace... That leg however painful is still there! The road will be long, but the surgeon believes I will make a full recovery. I was 20 or so feet from the tanker when it blew. The concusion was heard and felt for miles. It blew me back against the hillside! I have no burns, I have no hearing damage, in fact other than my leg, I have no injuries! No denying Gods hand of protection there! Thanks again.
