Tessa & Janie Share Their Stories!

Remember last August when I told you about four girls that were in an horrific car accident in which the car overturned several times? Well, I'm here to tell you today that they are about to graduate from high school in just 2 weeks!  

Last Sunday, Tessa and Janie, who as you remember suffered the worst physical injuries (Janie in medically induced coma for weeks, and Tessa sustained multiple injuries and broken bones as they were thrown out of car) told their stories in a brief interview during our worship service by our Student Ministries Pastor, Lane.

You could just sense the anticipation we all to hear what they had to say!

To hear their brief testimony of God's faithfulness to them and their families concerning the accident last August click here (9 mins.)

I thought you might like to see pictures of all four of the girls that were involved in the accident. How beautiful!

Janie, Grace, Madeline, & Tessa

I couldn't decide which picture to post of Tessa & Janie,
so I posted one above and the one below :-)

Janie & Tessa as young friends :-)
Janie is in the music group, OneVoice, and they sang for us last Sunday, too! She was the featured soloist that you will hear singing about the Lord and how He never forsakes us (duet is with fellow OneVoice singer, Sarah). To hear their song Sunday, click here. Enjoy as she sings about her Sovereign Lord that she has followed since a young girl!

As we were dismissed, OneVoice sang one more song. (You'll hear Janie start off as she is the main soloist singing ... I got waves tossing over me as this acapella song begins...) The congregation was to depart, but no one budged, for none of us wanted to end the blessing of hearing them sing! (that's why it is so quiet for the few several seconds as no one moved or left! Enjoy and may you be blessed as well :-)

"Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything."
~James 1:2-4 (Key Verse that ministered to Tessa the last 9 months) 

“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”
-John 16:33 (Key Verse that ministered to Janie the last 9 months)
with song "Whom Shall I Fear?" By Chris Tomlin 

Walk by Faith,
