Two weeks ago I shared that a great friend and supporter of VBS, Alaska's Jimmy Stewart, was severely burned and was in a Seattle hospital. He is suffering third-degree burns over 80 percent of his body and has already had four surgeries. There will be many more surgeries and painful procedures in the weeks and months ahead.
Jimmy serves as the Alaska Baptist Convention director of evangelism and church development and is a missionary with the North American Mission Board.
According to Baptist Press, the staff at Harborview Medical Center is encouraging friends to send letters and cards of encouragement to both Jimmy and his family. While you may not know him personally he is a friend through the great ministry of Vacation Bible School.
Let's fill Jimmy's room with cards! Send them to Harborview Medical Center, Attn: Patient Jimmy Stewart, 325 9th Avenue, Seattle, WA 98104.
