***UPDATE***
MORE PRAYERS NEEDED 🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏
Harry continues to worsen😞 the nurses and NPs can't even get blood from his arteries now for more testing. Please pray for him😞

We ask for prayers for this brave young man. He was in a terrible fishing accident on Saturday.

Please keep one of our 8th graders and his family in your prayers!! Harry Troxler was in a boating accident yesterday.

From his sister,
"Yesterday our brother Harry was in horrible fishing accident😞. He was thrown to the back of the boat from a tree and then ejected from the boat. He is now sedated in Fairfax trauma unit with air pockets in a partially collapsed lung, a punctured spleen, 4 broken ribs, gashes in his back, and a severely severed arm that has already had one surgery. Please pray for our family 😞"
They have a long road ahead of them.

To help ease some of the burden, the BMS FFA will be collecting Gift cards for gas, restaurants, and grocery stores. Harry’s mom will be staying at the hospital while she still has family at home that needs to get by. But most of all, please send your prayers.

Please contact Tonya Rowe for gift card donations. THANK YOU WARRIOR COMMUNITY!
