For three weeks we have been united in prayer for the Pollard Family from Clemmons who were injured in a serious car accident. Jeremy Pollard is the Student Pastor at Union Grove Baptist Church in Davidson County. Jeremy, wife Tiffany and their 18 month old son, Stephen were severely injured in the accident. However, God has been so faithful in answering prayers and their recovery has been nothing less than miraculous. Tiffany was released from the hospital over a week ago, Stephen is coming home today and it is likely that Jeremy will be released from the hospital later this week.
Here are two letters from Tiffany and Jeremy that were posted on their Care Page.

Message from Jeremy to you!
Trust in the Lord with all thine heart and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge Him and HE shall direct thy paths.
Dear Friends in Christ,
The last 3 ½ weeks have been the toughest, by far, in my life. But one of the great things about these verses is that God gives two distinct commands – one, to trust and two, to acknowledge Him in everything. If there is one thing that my family and I have learned it is that trusting God is not the easiest thing to do, but when we lean on Him, even in rough times like this, His promise is true and He will direct our paths.
I would like to thank each of you for the many thousands of prayers you have lifted up on behalf of my family. We are all improving and looking forward to being together at home soon.
When your storm comes, I hope that each of you will do as our families have done. Be faithful to pray and trust HIM in the storm.
Hoping to see my Union Grove church family in a few weeks,
Heal the wound but leave the scar, to remind me of how merciful you are.” “I am still confident of this, I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart; wait for the Lord.”
On August 27, our family entered a storm and since that evening, many of you have been traveling with us. Jeremy is doing much better and hopes to go home the first of this week. Pray for strength. Stephen is daily improving, and we hope to take him home later this week. Pray for grace and for his appetite.
Thank you for all the prayers and encouraging comments. You are continually lifting my spirits. Please keep interceding for us.
“All I am and ever hope to be, I owe it all to Thee...to God be the glory.”
