Shelly Zoe Noah Josh (and baby ephraim)
Story recap copied from the website
On January 18th, our pastor Josh Buck was in a swimming accident while on vacation in Mexico. The accident is considered a near drowning. In the process Josh fractured his neck and had to under go emergency surgery following his airlift to a Miami hospital. He was unable to breath on his own, intubated, and in an induced coma. Much quicker than expected, Josh was taken off the ventilator, breathing on his own and moved from ICU to a neuro unit. Josh was once again airlifted, this time home to Grand Rapids, where he is now a patient at Mary Free Bed Rehab. Hospital for the next 2-3 months. Right now Josh is attempting to regain movement and function his body. Rehab is difficult but Josh's spirits have been slowly lifting. This situation comes on the heals of the death of the Buck's youngest Daughter Ava Nicole, only 18 months ago. Please pray for Josh and his family (as Shelly is pregnant again), as well as Josh's co-pastor Jason Grate (and family). Please also pray for our church during this time.
Support Josh and his family. Display a bumper sticker or buy a t-shirt!
