We as the Sarah Gow family would like to thank each and everybody for their prayers because it was answered. The four youths in hospital were all discharged. One has internal bleeding that has stabilized, but he goes to hospital everyday for a check-up. The other she lost one finger in the accident and she is contempt and found solace in God. The other two have recovered relatively well.

There is still another bridge to cross, we have been burdened with the financial loss of the vehicle that we used (It is R15 000 about $2 273). So pray for us that we might attain the financial means.

God bless each and everybody.
