Family in need of Prayer...

I would like to take a minute to share with everyone about this family. The Robbins family rodeo'd in Kingman during the winter circuit DD did and they are just a fantastic family! I was notified yesterday afternoon that Brett the father was hurt horribly on June 17 while mowing his lawn. While he was mowing the lawn his lawn mower exploded and he was set on fire...He was able to stop, drop, and roll but was at home with only his 2 small children. After he got the fire out he managed to get his cell phone out of his pocket and call 911, he then hung up on 911 and called his wife Karody who then called their neighbor who was luckily home and is a trained nurse, so she aided to him until the paramedics got there and he was flown by helicopter to St Francis.. Brett was burned 40% of his body and also inhaled the flame so he had internal burns as well...He spent a long hard 4 weeks in St Francis Hospital and is now in a Rehabilitation Hospital at Wesley...

Please feel free to go to the the website of Caring Bridge where Karody has been keeping a daily journal of Brett's story.

So please, please keep this family in your prayers...
