Dave and Alyson Swope were in a severe car accident on the evening of April 3. Dave is assistant and interim pastor of Calvary Baptist Church, Mesa, Arizona. He has torn ligaments in his back and spine area and other cuts, scrapes, and bruises. Alyson, expecting their fourth child, has several cracked ribs. Her mobility is both limited and painful.

The Swopes are praying for the opportunity to bring glory to God through these circumstances, for their baby’s health, and for healing. They praise the Lord that they survived, that their children were not in the car with them, and that the driver who hit them also survived.
