Bart from Mercy Me has asked us all to pray

Early Saturday morning, Bart sent out a tweet asking us all to pray.

The Mercy Me tour bus was in an accident. The band is okay (physically), but 2 people in the car lost their lives. The third person in the car (a pregnant woman) needs your prayers.

The Mercy Me concert at Six Flags today has been postponed to Sept 5th.

Please be praying for all involved.

love, Lis

ps: Here's an article I found on-line...

The car, a black Chevy Corsica, was heading south on Lima but turned suddenly eastbound onto Coliseum, says Public Information Officer Liza Thomas. The car drove directly into the path of the bus. According to police, a female passenger and a male passenger in that car were pronounced dead at the scene. The driver was taken to a local hospital in critical condition.

I pray for the families, the witnesses and the emergency response team, and the medical staff caring for the young lady who has survived the crash. Jeremiah 29:11-14.

I live in Indiana and they are reporting that the girl lost her baby.  We are praying for her and for the band.  What a thing to live with even if it isn't their fault.  God works in mysterious ways and turns all things to good for those who love him.

To all of those who were involved in this tragic accident. May God bring comfort and peace too all of the families who lost loved ones and to the band who is such a Blessing to those who are hurting through their songs and testimonies. This is truly unfortunate and I pray God will strengthen each of you as you greet each new day and know others care and hold you all in prayer.

Thank you so much for the update.  I thought I heard Lisa say something about the young girl's (the driver) updated status from the hospital.  But I am unsure of the true fact of what has happened.  If any of you who read this know how she is doing, please do let me know.  Thank you.
