Update on Gary Parrett

Thank you so much for praying for my good friend, Dr. Gary Parrett. As many of you know, Dr. Parrett was seriously injured on July 3 in a bus crash in which there were 12 fatalities. Since then, he has been fighting for his life and has yet to regain consciousness. His wife and daughter have been by his side in the hospital in South Korea and they have been relaying updates on his condition and prayer requests nearly every day, here.

The most recent update I want to encourage you to be in prayer for involves his upcoming transfer to Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston. His family shared today:

The medical team that will be traveling with my dad on his flight to Boston will be visiting him in the hospital tomorrow to assess my dad’s condition.  Please pray that this will go smoothly and that all necessary information will be conveyed to the team so that they can be well-informed and well-equipped for the flight.

Now that nearly all of the final details have been taken care of, we wait.. and it seems as if there is now more time for anxious thoughts to fill our minds.  Please pray that our minds and hearts would remain in Christ and that we would learn to lay all of our fears and worries at His feet.  Our lives are in the hands of our loving and powerful God!

Thank you so much for your prayers!

May you be encouraged by the words of Gary’s hymn “Come, Lord Jesus to Redeem Us”

Come, Lord Jesus, to redeem us

from our foes and from our fears.

We await the hand of mercy

that will wipe away our tears.

We have labored long in darkness,

even now our hearts grow weak.

How we long for your appearing

and your great salvation seek.

(Rev. 21:4; Rom. 8:23; 2Tim. 4:8)
