On August 21st, the strong mind that we all know and love of Tim Lewis was tragically injured when a blood vessel burst in his brain.

The husband, father, spiritual father and teacher has always been there for many of us really needs our help. Since he is self-employed, he doesn't have medical insurance in order to cover the fees for the wonderful doctors and nurses who have helped keep him with us.

They were getting ready to go to an Astros game with the kids (Jax - 10 & Zoey - 3) when this started. Tim had collapsed and was unable to move because a blood vessel had burst in his head requiring emergency brain surgery.

After an Ambulance trip to the hospital, he was declared in critical condition and was life-flighted to St. Lukes for the actual procedure. By God's grace, it is rare for a surgeon to be present on the weekend for an emergency of this kind, however God made sure he was there and successfully removed the blood clot. They spent 18 days in ICU and finally made their way over to a Rehab hospital to further progress his recovery.

Tim still has weakness in his left side, some vision impairment and his ability to swallow recently was restored. As you can imagine, it has been quite an intense couple months for their family and from Beth Lewis' own words:

"But God has been so incredibly faithful and has shown up and shown off in so many amazing ways. I am so completely overwhelmed with His favor and love which He has been continually pouring out over us throughout these weeks. God is working and He has Tim in the palm of His hand."

"What our family has endured has been an unbelievable shock, but make no mistake about it, the TRUTH, which I believe with my whole heart, is that Tim is already completely and totally healed. Praise You Jesus! God is still in the miracle business and His promises are Yes and Amen and, as Tim always says, 'This tragedy has not knocked God off His Throne!' Our job is simply to believe, sit under His grace, and receive - and God promises we will see 'the Glory of God revealed in our lives'. All the Praise goes to our Miracle Working, Mountain Moving, Great and Awesome God!"

After the first 7 weeks, they were looking at hospital bills higher than $250,000. Please spread the word and keep their family in your prayers, any help is a blessing.
