“Your prayers are desperately needed and so is your support,” Casting Crowns lead signer Mark Hall posted on Instagram a couple of days ago, along with an update on the band’s former drummer, Andy Williams.
Williams was involved in a serious motorcycle accident on his way to church on June 27, 2021. After almost dying at the scene, Williams was rushed to the ER and placed on a ventilator because of extensive brain and bodily injuries.
The husband, father, and music teacher had to have his leg amputated just above the knee. Much is still unknown about what the upcoming days will bring for Williams and his family.
Doctors were able to eradicate bacteria from Williams’s lungs that was causing a fever, Pastor Jeff Boyet from Grace Chapel Fairview wrote in an update on Gofundme. Boyet asked people to pray for Williams’s complete healing and for his doctors. He also thanked those who had given to Williams’s Gofundme campaign, which was set up to help with medical bills and other unknown future financial needs. “The family can feel the love of Jesus from your generosity and continued prayers. Love to all,” Boyet wrote.
The Andy’s Army Gofundme campaign has raised over $43,000 of its $250,000 goal.
