Brown Family (Accident Victims) UPDATE - 8-6-2014

"The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much..."
James 5:16

Please pass this prayer request along to your church
and individual prayer lists.

I just received another update on the Brown family 
and wanted to share with all those who are praying and carrying a burden for these dear ones.

(For further explanation, please read the previous post by clicking HERE.)

Left to Right:  Quinton (5), Nevaya (1), Shyla (24), Steven (23), Max (2), Makeya (6)

Steven, (the father), has been released from the hospital.
Shyla, (the mother), and 1 year old Nevaya have also been released.
6 year old, Makeya is still on a ventilator and is paralyzed from the waist down.
They are hoping to move her from WV to OH to be with the rest of her family 
as soon as she is stable enough to withstand the trip.
2 year old Max's MRI today revealed that his spinal cord is severed almost completely in half.
The doctors are saying that neither of these children (Makeya nor Max) will ever walk again.

God is still on the throne, and He still performs miracles.
The family's faith is in Him and His ability to enable both of them to walk out of those hospitals...
restored and completely whole.

The funeral arrangements for 5 year old Quinton have been finalized,
and are, as follows:

Quinton Xaiver Brown

Quinton Xaiver Brown, age 5, of Vanceburg, Kentucky, passed away Saturday evening, August 2, 2014 in Lewis County, Kentucky, as a result of injuries sustained in an automobile accident.

He was born June 8, 2009, in Mason County, Kentucky,
a son of Steven Roy and Shyla Rae Dunigan Brown of Vanceburg, Kentucky.

Quinton loved going to church, watching Sponge Bob, and picking on his brother and sisters.  He especially enjoyed his daddy wrestling with him, his mommy singing to him and reading him stories,
and spending time with his grandparents.

Funeral services will be held at 11 a.m. Friday, August 8, 2014,
at Globe Family Funeral Chapel in Garrison, Kentucky, with Brother Ronnie Hall officiating.
Burial will follow in the Muses Chapel Cemetery at Quicks Run in Lewis County, Kentucky.

  10. He Careth For You

    Let all who are sad take heart again,
    We are not alone in our hours of pain;
    Our Father looks down from His throne above
    To soothe and comfort us with His love.

    He leaves us not when the storms are high--
    And we have safety for He is nigh.
    Can we deem trouble what He doth share?
    Oh, rest in peace, for the Lord doth care.

    "Casting all your care upon Him;
    for He careth for you." (1 Peter 5:7)

    1. What a beautiful, comforting poem! Thank you for sharing...I will make sure it is forwarded to the Brown family. God bless you.
