My Story

We serve a BIG LOVING GOD-stay updated on Shaela's journey to recovery.






After leaving youth group on Tuesday, March 8, the car Shaela was riding in with her sister & another friend, was parked at a red light at Maroa & Barstow. A truck did not realize the light was red and hit the girls from behind.  It took over an hour to get the girls out of the car.  Shaela suffered major injuries to her face and skull.  Our God is a BIG God – he protected the other girls in the car and Shaela did not suffer any other physical injuries.  Please continue to pray for Shaela & her family, as well as the staff at the hospital who are caring for her.

Thank you for your continued support of Shaela & her family!
