Local Youth Critically Injured In Sledding Accident, Family Reaching Out For Prayer
SEES 4th Grader In Critical Condition With Fractured Skull
THIS STORY HAS BEEN UPDATED: CLICK HERE FOR THE LATEST REPORT
Darren Doyle, story:
A local youth was critically injured in a sledding accident on Saturday, January 13, 2018 on a family farm on Louisville Road.
According to family members who were in contact with the Edmonson Voice this morning, ten year-old Coleton Parsley crashed into a utility pole while sledding yesterday, where he suffered a fractured skull, multiple broken ribs, a hip fracture, and a torn neck ligament.
After being transported to the hospital yesterday, he was airlifted to Vanderbilt Hospital where he remains in critical condition. He is the son of Brian and Heather Parsley of Smiths Grove and is a fourth grade student at South Edmonson Elementary. Mrs. Parsley is a local APRN and manages A+ Family Healthcare in Brownsville.
In a message sent to the Edmonson Voice, Mrs. Parsley said "Coleton needs God to intervene to get him through this."
The family asked us to share a portion of a message from Mrs. Parsley that she posted on her personal Facebook page:
"I️ know the Lord is in control & our family sure knows the power of prayer. I️ am overwhelmed by the outpouring of love & support that our friends, family & community have shown us. We truly need the good Lord to place his healing touch on Coleton."
The family has asked specifically for prayer in their time of need. Several friends and local churches held private and public prayer this morning at 11am.
"His pressures & vitals are stable at this time. Please continue to pray for God to heal him & to give us strength. Hug your kids tonight," the message said.
We will have updates upon the wishes of the Parsley family.

Praying for Coleston in the name of Jesus and asking God to heal and restore his body. 1 Peter 2:24 "By His stripes we were healed". We stand on this scripture that says we "were" healed....long ago, when Jesus took the stripes upon His back, those stripes were for our healing and for Coleston's healing. Thank You, JESUS for loving us enough to endure that pain so that we could be healed. Touch young Coleston now and bring healing to his body, mind, spirit and soul. Wrap Your loving arms around him, Lord Jesus so that he knows he is not alone and so that he feels safe. Let Your healing flow from the top of his head to the soles of his feet and may he feel Your sweet prescence all the way. In Jesus' name i pray and ask these things. Amen

Word of encouragement! Our 3 year old granddaughter was sled riding and broke her femur bone . They said she might never walk the same again. We refused to believe that. With God's help and lots of prayers she was walking without her walker within 2 weeks. She is now 6 and you would never know this happened to her. The only thing is her scar. Our family will be praying for him. Remember kids bounce back in no time.We serve a powerful God and prayer works.

Lifting Coleton up in prayer. Jesus has already taken the stripes on his back for his healing. The bible states where two or more are gathered in his name, that God is in the mist. Praying for the Lord to cover him with his healing blood from his head to his toes. Lord, I know that you love Coleton and his family. They believe in the power of prayer and healing. We are asking you Lord to heal him completely. Please provide his family with peace and comfort that only you can provide. Lord you said that if we have the faith the size of a mustard seed, that we can tell that mountain to move and cast it into the sea. Lord we have that faith, and we are asking and believing that you will move this mountain off of Coleton in the precious name of Jesus.

I have faith that your son has the best care and will have an amazing recovery! I have faith because my Lord has done so much in my life, I know he will do even more in Coleton's life!
