PRAISE GOD!!!! I PASSED MY TEST!!!

I would like to thank EVERYONE for there continued support and prayers! This is a testament to the fact that PRAYER WORKS!! Today I PASSED MY TEST!! I am now a T-11 (POSSIBLE T-12) level injury and an ASIA-B which means......I have an INCOMPLETE INJURY. This is the best possible news I could have gotten because it means that I have a good chance of recovery! If you are an ASIA-A it means you have NO motor and NO sensory functions. However, since my prognosis has been changed to a level B and an incomplete it means I am CONNECTED. The sky is the limit as far as my recovery. Many people with incomplete injuries have started WALKING within a couple of years!
PRAYER WORKS!! After the accident my odds of surviving were NOT good. Everyone I know starting praying diligently for my survival. God answered those prayers and brought me back. Once I regained consciousness the outcome was NOT good at all. It was actually the worst possible prognosis. I was a T-10 level ASIA-A which means a COMPLETE injury and I was given a 5 % chance of recovering functions (both motor and sensory.) Well my prayer warriors went to work again on my behalf. Enough people brought me before God and he ANSWERED those prayers ONCE AGAIN! I was moved from a T-10 to a T-11 and from an ASIA-A to an ASIA-B! My therapists told me that it is very very rare for a case to be overturned the way mine has been overturned. I have gotten a lot of sensations back and the doctor is impressed by my progress. If I can get some more motor function back then my level will be changed to an ASIA-C then its ON TO WALKING!..... Right now I am 2 for 2 with God answering our prayers......lets see if we can make it 3 for 3.
Please everyone give a prayer of thanksgiving to God for his continued blessings on me! Now is not the time to stop praying but instead kick it into overdrive! Through prayer and petition God will hear us crying out and answer our prayers! THIS IS THE NEWS IVE BEEN WAITING FOR SO LONG! I have FAITH....not hope....FAITH that one day I will be restored! I can not thank each and everyone of you enough for your continued prayer and support. Believe me it was YOU who made this possible for me. Praise GOD! I know I will be a miracle for him to show off to the world one day!
I LOVE YOU ALL!
IN HIM,
BRENT

Brent, This is your uncle Johnny. I just wanted you to know you are in my thoughts and prayers and I am sooo greatful to God for the prayers he has answered and will continue to answer and how he has used something the devil meant for evil and turned it into a blessing for so many lives. You are truly a blessing in my life and I hope to see you before too many weeks. I love you! Johnny

This is outstanding news Brent. I am very excited to hear the progress. You can only keep focusing on positive thoughts; it looks like you have that one under control already. I just know this will only continue to get better for you. This just proves that faith overcomes any diagnosis you might be given.

Hi Brent!

Prayers are still streaming up from Central America. Two girls are here from Harding and know Amanda (small world!), so we've been talking about you lately and praying for you in our Bible study group in Panama City. I'll be sure to tell them your latest awesome, wonderful, incredible, fantastic, fun news!

I just have to say, that every time I read where someone has mentioned your sense of humor, prank pulling or joking, I'm immediately transported back in my mind to marine biology class. I can see and hear you describing some marine creature in your "Crocodile Hunter" voice. I always smile. So many special memories of those days.

Love you lots and would give you a big hug if I was there.

Also, much love to your mom and dad.
