Hello sweet friends and family of the Browns, 

David said last night that setting up a Caring Bridge site for them would be helpful. Most of this information you probably know, but here's the general update (I'll start with the youngest and go up):

- Noelle have minor injuries. They kept her last night in the hospital for monitoring. They put her in the PICU so that she could be close to Rebekah. Noelle has some bruising on her lung but that will be fine. She is so precious - praise the Lord that she is ok! 

- Lilah and Asher were not in the accident. Ryann was on her way to their school to pick them up. They stayed overnight with a teacher. Please pray for them as well!

- Sweet precious Micah is in the arms of Jesus. 

- Rebekah has a brain bleed and is in the PICU. Please pray for her! She is in very critical condition.

- Sarah was taken by helicopter to Birmingham. She has multiple serious injuries and needs our prayers. 

- Ryann is physically ok - minor injuries. Pray for her! This is so unimaginable. Her faith is so strong and she is an incredible woman of God. Pray He would give her His strength and peace!

- David was not in the accident, praise the Lord. He is being so strong. Pray for him as he cares for his family. 

- Our church, Rivertree, will have an all day "come and go" time for prayer at the church today, May 13, from 9 am to 7 pm. Anyone is welcome. 

** Thank you all for the desire to help! You are all so precious. The family has had so many reach out to them! It is all so early that we aren't sure exactly what the needs are right now. We will set up an account (today hopefully) for donations and put together some sort of meal sign-up. 

"He tends His flock like a shepherd: He gathers the lambs in His arms and carries them close to His heart." -Isaiah 40:11

To the Sharmans,Schwoebels, and Brown Family,
"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11
God will, hold you while you grieve , he will love you while you question why? He will give you peace, when you feel there can never be peace again.
Many people are praying and care so much for your family.
