On Sunday we were made aware of a horrific accident involving a friend of First Euless, Lauren Scruggs. After viewing Christmas lights over the city of Dallas, Lauren accidentally walked into the propeller of the plane that was carrying her. She has suffered head trauma, amputation of her hand and has several surgeries to preserve her eye. Lauren is a 23 year old disciple of Jesus in the fashion industry. Her parents, Jeff and Cheryl, are authors and featured speakers because of the testimony of God's grace in restoring their marriage after they had gotten a divorce. They're testimony and interaction with our faith family at First Euless has led many broken people to find hope in Jesus.
Please pray for the Scruggs. They are completely aware that the Lord has chosen to use them to show what sufficient grace looks like in the midst of adversity. Pray that people would be able to see the hope that they have in Jesus through all of this.
