Praying for Graham

On July 30th, our family made a trip to the Adirondacks to spend some time with friends at our favorite place, The Word of Life Family Campground.  This is a part of The Word of Life Ministries which also consists of the Bible Institute, The Inn up in Schroon Lake and the summer ministries of The Island (for teens) and The Ranch (for the younger ones).  Every Friday evening, there is a rodeo at The Ranch which is open to the public.  It is a fun time with a petting zoo, concessions, climbing tower, and an old time rodeo.
This particular Friday, the rodeo was going well until the calf roping event.  One of the wranglers, Graham Stump, was on his personal horse, Crockett, when the horse stumbled, fell and Graham was thrown to the ground, hard.  Graham was rushed via ambulance and then air lifted to the hospital where he has been in ICU since that day.
Please read Graham's daily updates as told by his wife, Randi, at  Randi, as well as Graham need our prayers during this difficult time.  You may also find updates on Facebook under "Praying for Graham Stump".

Thank you for taking the time to care and to pray,

...The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous one avails much. James 5:16
