This is a report for Mission 289 by Grace on Wings.
Departure: Cincinnati, Ohio
Arrival: Chicago, Illinois
Date: March 10, 2014
God allowed us to interact and be good witnesses of Jesus Christ in both hospitals today as well as with the ground EMS crews.
We always pray for our patient’s two times during our transport phases. The first time is right before we load our patient into the aircraft. We also pray for the patient as a way to tuck them in at their new location.
In this case we were entrusting Sean to a large team of individuals. We prayed for Sean in his new room. We had multiple people join us for prayer to include three respiratory therapist, John (Sean’s father) and the Grace on Wings crew. The respiratory therapists were highly impressed with the prayer (definitely the Holy Spirit leading the prayer and situation). It was so good to find other Christ follower’s working in the healthcare facility that we entrusted Sean to and for them to be open with their faith after joining us in prayer for Sean.
John, Sean’s father was anxiously awaiting his son’s arrival to Chicago Rehab Institute. Grace on Wings has been working with Sean’s parents for over a month and a half to get them to Chicago. Insurance had declined their move twice and the driver responsible for the accident did not have auto insurance.
We had attempted to fly Sean last Wednesday but the weather was too poor to fly into Chicago on that day and later on in the day we discovered that insurance gave prior authorization for flight; however, they required more documentation. Today the flight went off without a hitch and that is a demonstration of God’s providence and time as being perfect.
Please keep Sean and his family in your prayers. Sean does have a 3 year old son. Sean has long battle ahead of him that will require mental toughness.
