Update: Julius will need reconstructive surgery for his shattered left cheek. There is no evidence of brain damage, praise the Lord! His face is very swollen, of course, so they are waiting for that to subside a bit before doing surgery. Thanks again for your prayers!
A young friend of ours, Julius Malazo, was injured in an accident at work today. A tank of some sort exploded, hitting him squarely in the face. He's in the hospital, awaiting surgery. Please pray for him, his wife Sally, and his parents. Julius and Sally have only been married a little over a year, and they are working with Pastor Shawn Beliveau at Urban Community Baptist Church in downtown Vancouver. They are both much loved among our community of churches in the area, and I know that his wife, family, and church family would appreciate your prayers!
