Prayers for Spinal Injury

October 20, 2015

A week ago one of our fireman brothers broke his neck in a surfing accident. We have been only sending updates through our email ministry. However I wanted to share and open it up on the website so that prayers can continue to pour in from around the world. Below is our latest update. At the very bottom of the page will be a link if you are moved to also support this family financially.

Please pray for our brother. Thank you so much.

Yurik Update as of Tuesday, October 20, 2015.

Good Evening Everybody. Today I was fortunate enough to talk to Kyle (Yurik’s brother), and Aaron (pictured below) one of our fire brothers and one of Yurik’s closest friends.

Yurik is continuing to get stronger in many areas! His arm strength and movement is getting better and better. Yurik’s spirits continue to remain high, in fact higher than most of his family and friends around him which is typical Yurik but also an amazing blessing and miracle.

Yurik has had some complications which is common in such severe injuries and accidents, but they have made improvements in these areas from infection and bleeding in his stomach.

Yesterday was the first day as you can see in one of the pictures below they assisted Yurik to sit up! Yurik wanted to do this, although it was extremely painful, due to all the nerves being forced into action after being idle for so long. Kinda like a reboot on his whole nervous system. Big Success!

Yurik is still on a ventilation machine which assists his breathing but they are starting to slow down the rate which is helping and allowing Yurik’s lungs to strengthen and begin breathing more and more on his own. There still is a lot of junk (water, sand, mucous, etc) in his lungs which is why he still needs breathing assistance.

The guys shared with me that Yurik’s favorite thing to do now is have the nurses put water in his mouth. He is so thirsty, but cannot drink water yet, so the sensation brings him such comfort and joy (So amazing how we take these things for granted)! In fact, Aaron jokingly told me that this caused one of the biggest smiles he has seen on Yurik in a long time.

The upcoming plan is for Yurik to get strong enough to make the trek to Denver were they have a very good spinal injury rehabilitation center.

Thank you for your continued prayer and support. It is greatly appreciated and powerful. Please know that prayer is so powerful. We just have a tendency to dumb it down, and point to worldly circumstances. We forget that God controls the world! Look at what God says in Psalm 50:

Psalm 50:10-12

10 For every beast of the forest is Mine,
And the cattle on a thousand hills.
11 I know all the birds of the mountains,
And the wild beasts of the field are Mine.

12 “If I were hungry, I would not tell you;
For the world is Mine, and all its fullness.

Please continue to pray for God’s healing and favor and Will upon this whole situation and Yurik specifically. Please pray for the doctors and nurses. Please continue to pray for financial support. Please continue to pray for Yuriks wife and their two daughters and all their family members that have been helping share the load.

Tomorrow Hawaii News Now is coming by the hospital room to do a story on him, and also on the dangers of Sandy Beach. They will interview Yuriks wife Lindsey and Aaron will be there to help her.

Please Pray for Lindsey and Aaron to have the strength, words and courage to tackle tomorrow with joy and inspiration. They would like prayer so that they will not be afraid, anxious or stumbling on their words.

James 1:2-4 NLT

Dear brothers and sisters, when troubles of any kind come your way, consider it an opportunity for great joy. For you know that when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow. So let it grow, for when your endurance is fully developed, you will be perfect and complete, needing nothing.
