Update:: Pray for Steven Curtis Chapman & Family

21 May

In Memory of 5 year-old Maria Chapman

As you read this, please remember recording artist Steven Curtis Chapman, his wife Mary Beth, and the rest of your family in your prayers. According to a statement on Steven Curtis Chapman’s website, “At approximately 5pm on the afternoon of Thursday May 21st, Maria Sue Chapman, 5 years old and the youngest daughter to Steven and Mary Beth Chapman was struck in the driveway of the Chapman home in Franklin, TN. Maria was rushed to Vanderbilt Childrens Hospital in Nashville, transported by LifeFlight, but died of her injuries there. Maria is one of the close knit family’s six children and one of their three adopted daughters.” For more information, please visit SCC’s site.

Please pray for the family to come together in this loss. The name of the driver of the car is not being released for obvious reasons, but remember him especially as he struggles to make sense of something senseless. Chapman family, we are joining in prayer for you right now.

The Chapman family we would like to let you know that they have requested in lieu of flowers donations be made to Shaohannah’s Hope Ministry. Donations can be made to the below P.O. Box and at www.showhope.org/maria or www.shaohannahshope.org/maria
