On Sunday, November 8, 2009, my son Joey was attacked by a group of young men in a large city in India. Joey, in the country for a Christian conference, was slashed in the face by a straight-razor. After fighting off his attacker and running away (along with two of his fellow pastors), he was taken to a hospital, where his cheek was sewn together. Thanks to his church , he was able to return to his home in Austin on Tuesday.
We are very grateful to our Lord that he did not lose an eye or have his throat cut.
We are grateful for the fine stitching job done by a doctor in India.
We are grateful that he is recovering emotionally, and has learned so many lessons from this incident.
In a few days, I’ll post his reflections from the last few days.
