Jackson Larson is a remarkable young man. I’ve never met Jackson but would like the opportunity to meet this NextGeneration leader. Recently, Jackson was injured in a rather unusual car accident. Several vertebrae in his back were crushed and he is – for now, at least – paralyzed from the waist down. But his injuries aren’t what makes him remarkable. Unfortunately there are tens of thousands of people who have been similarly injured. What is remarkable is Jackson’s story of faith and hope. There is no question that Jackson has been raised by pretty amazing parents and has been surrounded by people who have loved him and cared for him throughout his young life. I know that Jackson is someone I would want teaching my kids (or grand kids). You can read his story here. Be sure to watch the short video from the local news team, too, then pray for Jackson and for his family. And thank God that he continues to call young men and women to himself and that he works in their lives for his glory!
