Many of you have read a few things I've written about Dr. Jim (Morrison) before. He's a good friend of mine, a man who's always thinking and praying about missional living -- and then acting on those thoughts and prayers. (The same could be said for his wife, Tracy.) He's the ER physician who camped out in the ICU unit at Cook's right after the wreck so he could be with the families of the three boys. In the past, Jim has made several medical mission trips to Haiti. Right now he's in Zambia. Unfortunately, yesterday he accidentally hit a child while driving, and the boy--about four or five years old--died in his arms. This is a man who gladly give his life for such a child. He's heart-broken. (By the way, stories like this are not uncommon in Africa. I've heard many stories of missionaries who had the same kind of tragic experience.) Everyone around the site of the accident agrees that it was absolutely not his fault. The child darted out suddenly without looking. Still, he's in the middle of Africa waiting to see if the case will be dropped as it should be. Jim tells me that the American embassy in Lusaka has been very helpful. He said he's so thankful for their assistance. But he would certainly love to have the prayers of everyone in the blog world. There is a hearing tomorrow. Please join me in prayer that the authorities will dismiss the case, recognizing that it was an accident that didn't stem from wreckless driving, that Jim will feel the love and support of his family and friends in the midst of his grief, and that the Zambian family will be comforted.
