Elisabeth Elliot update {7-01-2012}

Many of you have inquired about injuries that Lars Gren and his wife Elisabeth Elliot Gren sustained in their car accident.  As of June 14, 2012:

Lars is in Ma., staying with friends since he is not able to drive til Aug. per Valerie.  He fractured a c-2 in his neck and had surgery for a screw to be fused to the bone, and is not getting as well, as quickly as he'd liked.

Lars and Valerie had to make the decision to put Elisabeth in a facility because Val could no longer care for her. Elisabeth's stay in the facility will be brief, as Val plans on taking her back to Ma, once she returns from the UK {Val is helping her daughter Elisabeth with her 4th baby}.

For those of you who would like to send Elisabeth well wishes, I have her mailing address, just e-mail me and I will give it to you.

Many have asked if you could download the picture of E.E & Val.  I'm afraid that you can't.  I really do appreciate you asking before taking the liberty to do so.  You are welcome to link to the pic, but these are family portraits that Val has been kind enough to share with those of you who loves her mother, for your enjoyment.

Thanks, and as Elisabeth has reminded us many, many times.
"Everything if given to God can become your gateway to joy!"

Be blessed dear friends.

  1. Hi, I came across this page googling Lars & Elisabeth Gren as I would love to write to her - I did find an address on their site a while ago, Strawberry Cove, but is there also an email address? I live in N Ireland & will soon be holidaying in New England, part of me would love it if it were possible to meet her, but the other part thinks that obviously she is now elderly, doesn't know me & how rude of me to even ask! Just wondering if you know of people doing this, ie. dropping in or obviously just writing/emailing. Thank you for your help, God bless, Leah Bennett - email is leah_bennett@yahoo.com

  2. Hi, my name is Amy, and I am also inquiring about how to send a small piece of correspondence to Elisabeth. I would like the opportunity to tell her how God has used her writings, the story of her faith and the intimate way in which she tells Amy Carmichael's story, to profoundly shape and deeply inspire my own calling. My email is abrinkl2@slu.edu.

    Thank you!
