CBN.com Late last night, MercyMe posted an updated statement about the accident their bus was involved in this past Saturday morning in Ft. Wayne, Indiana. We are passing along this statement at the band’s request, and also due to the numerous inquiries we have received for the band:
MercyMe would like to thank everyone for the overwhelming support and prayers that have been said not only for them, but for the families affected by this tragic accident. We have been in continued communication with the chaplaincy program at the Ft. Wayne Police Department, and our thoughts and prayers continue to be with everyone affected by this situation.
Every night on stage when we introduce our song, “Bring the Rain”, we talk about God being in control. If we believe what we say, then we must continue to look at how He will get the glory through this, and bring healing to so many.
We resumed our touring schedule in Milwaukee Monday evening. Before beginning the concert, Bart addressed the crowd for all of us, expressing our heartbreak for the families in Ft. Wayne and our desire to pray for the families touched by this tragedy. The crowd joined us in prayer specifically praying for comfort, peace, and understanding. We thank all of you for continuing to pray.
Bart, Mike, Jim, Nathan, Barry & Robby
