PRAYING FOR MENDY BROCKMAN...urgent call to prayer for all my readers!!!

Good morning to all of my readers....

Late this past Friday night, a young Mom was driving to the airport to pick her husband up..something completely routine in this young woman's life. On the way home, a car suddenly pulled out in front of them from the shoulder of the road. Their car clipped the other drivers, went into a spin, and flipped many times.  The husband was able to break out a window and crawl out with minor injuries. The young mom, my best friend for all of my life, was pinned upside down with a broken neck. The Jaws of Life were required to get her out and she was then life flighted to the nearest hospital.

As of this morning, after an extensive 12 hour surgery, she can move her arms/shoulders, but still has no feeling in her hands/wrists. There is also no feeling from her waist down. Her name is Mendy Brockman. She is a mother to four small children, ages 6 and under, her youngest being only a year old. The possibility of permanent paralysis from the chest down is great.

This family needs our PRAYERS!! God can do miracles and we know that. He also gives the miracle of GRACE to believers when He says no to the miracle of healing. We're asking Him to do His will in this situation. Will you join with us in praying for The Brockman Family? Will you spread the word in your families, communities, and churches?

Well wishes and Financial support can be sent to the following if you feel led by the Lord to do so...

Mendy and my oldest child (2006)
 I've known Mendy all of my life. We've been through so many things together and the pain of all of this is incredible. She has been my friend, mentor, encourager, amongst many other things. She needs our prayers and encouragement and I know it would greatly encourage them (her especially) to hear from people they don't even know that they are being prayed for and lifted up before the Throne of Heaven! Thank you for praying!

**UPDATE** Thursday, July 11**

This update is coming from a mutual friend who has been able to be in close contact with the Brockmans during this time.

 I talked to Jason this evening and he and Mendy are definitely overwhelmed. Each day brings new challenges and he asked me to post a couple of things to clarify Mendy's condition. There have been some posts about Mendy not being paralyzed above the waste, but that is not accurate. Mendy is not able to do much at all above the waist, and nothing below the waist.

She is now out of ICU, and they hope to begin some rehab pretty soon. This will be a very long term progression, and right now they are just trying to keep her moving some, so other complications won't occur, like bed sores and such.

Jason is physically fine, but, as you can imagine, he is quite exhausted and needs as much prayer support as possible. He does not have a Facebook account, but will likely get on Mendy's to clarify some things when he can. He is looking at other ways to communicate also, such as CaringBridge, but he has a lot on him now. I am looking into some details for him on that.

Please keep praying and know that they appreciate that very much. You are welcome to send notes, emails, and texts, but please understand that he won't be able to return many at all right now.

Use the following address, for physical mail:

If you want to help support them in any financial way, their church has a PayPal account. Just go to PayPal and then choose: Send Money and put the following email address in:

You can also send checks to the church directly with a note that it is to support Mendy Brockman.

**UPDATE: July 29, 2014** Mendy is doing remarkably well! She and her husband Jason just returned from ministering in a Conference for young adults and singles. This was Mendy's first time to be away from home ministering alongside her husband since the accident. 

The reason I give you this update that is up to now Mendy has been able to miraculously regain a lot of upper body movement. Her hands though remain weak and they are seeking the use of a ARP Wave Machine to help aid in her having more mobility and strength. This machine costs around $20,000 and is not covered by insurance. Mendy and Jason have trusted the Lord completely for all of their needs and we only found out about this just recently (they do not volunteer their needs :-) we have to drag it out of them!) If you will go to this link it will give more details and will share how you can help! Even if you cannot help, we COVET your prayers for this family! Thank you to all who have prayed and have passed Jason and Mendy's story along to others for prayer! 


  1. If you read this post and are passing along this prayer request, would you post a note to say where you are from and that you are praying? Thanks so much!!
