Update on Luke Holland’s Longboarding Fall

Our oldest son, Luke, had a serious fall on his longboard Wednesday. Though he “usually” wears his helmet, he decided not to “just this time.”

He doesn’t remember the fall but a friend was behind him and said Luke hit some gravel and the board went forward and he went backwards. He hit the back of his head on the road resulting in a skull fracture with some light internal (brain) bleeding. He also lost a fair amount of skin on his knees, elbows, back, and hands.

Bottom line is that God was merciful to our son, AGAIN! This could have been a lot worse.

Should be in the hospital a couple of days for observation. He’s pretty sore and has a whopper of a headache.

Thank you to all who have prayed for him.

… And kids, wear your helmets.

  1. We’re so glad to hear that he is doing alright! You are all in our prayers :)

  2. Pastor Rick, Praise God for His merciful reminders. He provides just enough trial to remind us of our weakness and draw us close to Himself, and yet in many instances, like that of your son, allows us to survive it! Praying for his healing. Michael Harsch
