I told you earlier this week that Christian band MercyMe had been involved in an accident that took the lives of two passengers in the car that hit their tour bus, as well as the live the driver’s unborn baby.
The band released another statement today and asked for us to share it with readers:
MercyMe would like to thank everyone for the overwhelming support and prayers that have been said not only for them, but for the families affected by this tragic accident. We have been in continued communication with the chaplaincy program at the Ft. Wayne Police Department, and our thoughts and prayers continue to be with everyone affected by this situation.
Every night on stage when we introduce our song, “Bring the Rain”, we talk about God being in control. If we believe what we say, then we must continue to look at how He will get the glory through this, and bring healing to so many.
We resumed our touring schedule in Milwaukee Monday evening. Before beginning the concert Bart addressed the crowd for all of us, expressing our heartbreak for the families in Ft. Wayne and our desire to pray for the families and for the young lady who still remains hospitalized. The crowd joined us in prayer specifically praying for healing, comfort, peace and understanding. We thank all of you for continuing to pray.
Bart, Mike, Jim, Nathan, Barry & Robby
Please continue to keep the driver in your prayers, as well as the families of the victims, and the band as they continue to minister to people through this tragedy.
