Chad Phelps was serving the Lord at Colonial Hills Baptist Church in Indianapolis, Indiana. He and his wife, Courtney, were bringing the church's youth group home after a God-honoring, spirit-filled week at Camp CoBeAc in Michigan. In a tragic bus accident, Chad, Courtney, their unborn daughter, and a fellow church member were promoted directly into the presence of God. As a pastor friend of mine stated, "Chad and Courtney literally gave their lives while serving the Lord." They are survived by their young son, Chase.
Chad and Courtney have greatly impacted the lives of Elaine and me as well as countless others around the world. They were each a tremendous example of Christ's love and selfless service. We know that we will see effects of their lives and ministry for years to come.
Our goal with this fundraiser is to honor Chad and Courtney's memory by being a blessing to Chase. All of the love that we have felt for them we hope to invest into Chase. Our prayer is that this will be a blessing to Chase and his family in fulfilling immediate needs or investing in the future of the child. He will be turning 2 on October 25 and we will be turning over this donation to the family at that time.
Please keep the Phelps and Gaddy families along with their extended family in your prayers. Please also consider what you could contribute to this gift of love. 100% of this will be going directly to those caring for Chase.
Be in prayer for the family of Tonya Weindorf as well as she was the other individual promoted into Heaven in this accident. If you would like to send donations to her family please go toyoucaring.com/extravagantlovefortheweindorfs
