Godmother's family got into a car accident

In your mercy, please pray for my godmother, Laura, her husband, Father Aleksey, and their children, Liza, Nikolai, and Sergei. They were driving east through the Midwest US after serving one of the mission churches that Fr. Aleksey serves in central BC, to go visit Laura's family. Driving through SD on their way eventually to Minnesota, I guess the winds in the badlands blew them off the road and off a small incline. Everyone was wearing their seatbelts and everyone is still alive, except for some cuts and bruises - glory to God - but their car and trailer are totaled and they're going to be delayed getting back home to the west coast. Their daughter also has some behavioral and psychological issues and doesn't need any additional trauma to rattle her.

These folks are like a second family to me. Thanks guys!

Today the nature of the waters is sanctified,
The Jordan bursts forth and turns back the flood of its streams,
Seeing the Master wash Himself.

To the voice of one crying in the wilderness,
Prepare ye the way of the Lord,
You came, O Lord, taking the form of a servant,
Asking for baptism though you have no sin.
The waters saw You and were afraid.
The Forerunner began to tremble and cried out, saying:
How shall the lampstand illumine the Light?
How shall the servant lay hands upon the Master?
Sanctify both me and the waters, O Savior,
Who takes away the sins of the world.

Thanks Mrs. M! I talked to Laura today, she and the family are doing okay, still in MN and dealing with insurance.

Luckily Fr. Aleksey bought complete-destruction insurance for the car (not sure about the trailer though?) so they'll be able to get a new vehicle.

I can't get over how blessed they all are to be alive.
