Pray for Noah - 2 Year Old Community Member Drowning victim who suffered brain damage

Please be praying for the tragedy of 2 year old Noah Carter who is brain dead from a drowning accident in their pool at their home in Vista.

He was life flighted to Children's Hospital today. We don't know if the little boy will survive or not.

His parents, Tom and Cherie Carter, have other young children too. They are strong Christians and have a strong faith in our Lord, but, they are suffering in an unimaginable way right now.

The Carter Family will be taking Noah off of life support at a ceremony today at Noon. Your prayers are felt by all. There is still time for a miracle and we all believe the Lord is doing a mighty work in this tragic situation.

Noah looks so good. Healthy, good color, and at peace. His brain is completely dead, though. Only the stem remains alive and is keeping the heart beating. The nurses are saying it cannot get any worse as brain conditions go.

Please pray for the Carter Family today as they need to go through some grueling interviews and sign off paperwork for the life support and organ donations. Then they will have the official ceremony at Noon. This will be a tough day for the family.

Thank you for taking the time to pray for the Carters.
