The following are a few emails that I have received this weekend from a pastor friend, Gary Ledford. They outline the account…the last update was this morning around 6:14 AM.
I need each of you to pray for my nephew Jacob Dennis. Jacob was severely wounded by mortar this morning in Afghanistan and is on life support in serious condition. He is enroute to the hospital in Germany. Pray for him, his wife – Allysha, his parents Tony and Renee and also both grandparents. This has hit very close to home. I have had the privilege to talk with Jacob about his salvation and I can say that he is saved.
Thank you for your prayers for my nephew, Jacob Dennis and his family. Jacob was very seriously wounded yesterday in Afghanistan when a mortar shell exploded near him. As I mentioned yesterday, he sustained head injuries that we now know caused brain trauma, a collapsed lung, and lacerations to his face and legs. He still is on life support in ICU at the base hospital in Germany.
Just a few minutes ago we heard from the Dr. that he was in stable condition. His wife, Allysha and his parents, Tony and Renee Dennis are in flight to Washington DC where they will be flown to Germany later on this evening. Please continue to pray for them that God would give His grace for this great need. Also, continue to pray for Jacob’s grandparents who are also in need of Divine Strength.
I want to thank each of you for praying for my nephew, Jacob Dennis for the past couple of days. Last night Jacob found completion of his faith in Jesus Christ as his eyes opened in Heaven to behold his Saviour face to face. I ask that you continue to pray for his wife, Allysha and his parents, Tony and Renee Dennis, his brother, Sam and his sister, Molly. Also, pray for both sets of grandparents, Mr. & Mrs. Don McGowan and Mr. & Mrs. Gene Dennis. All of his family now rests in the hope of seeing Jacob in Glory.
Tony, Renee, Allysha and Sam will be returning from Germany with Jacob as soon as the arrangements can be made. Pray for their safety and the difficult days ahead.
