Steensons Survive Auto Accident

3ABN president Jim Gilley, and 3ABN pastoral ministries general manager, J. D. Quinn, have released the following statement concerning the accident involving 3ABN vice president and general manager, Mollie Steenson, and her husband Hal, who runs 3ABN’s Prayer Warrior program for the Pastoral Ministries Department:

On Monday afternoon, March 11, 2013, Hal and Mollie Steenson were involved in an automobile accident. Apparently another driver, coming from the opposite direction, veered off the road and over-corrected, steering their car into oncoming traffic.

Providentially, Hal was able to swerve in time, avoiding a tragic head-on collision; however, the Steenson car was severely damaged by the impact and forced into a ditch. We are thankful to God that everyone survived.

Hal sustained a number of injuries, including broken ribs, a bruised sternum, and a broken finger on his left hand. He spent the night in the Intensive Care Unit for observation, but since there was no internal bleeding, he will be transferred to a regular room today.

Mollie suffered a bruised anklebone and a broken rib. Both were coherent and speaking after the accident, but were taken by helicopter from a local hospital to one in St. Louis, Missouri—a standard precautionary procedure for victims of high-impact car accidents. The driver of the other car also survived; however, we have no official word on their condition or injuries. Please pray for God’s healing power over all those who have been injured.

With special appreciation for your prayers,

Jim Gilley, 3ABN President

J. D. Quinn, 3ABN Pastoral Ministries Department General Manager
