If any of you are familiar with Sanctus Real, then you know that they are an awesome Christian band who has an outstanding ministry. So when I caught wind that they had another tragedy in their midst, I thought that you would want to know about it and start to pray for the group. It seems that their tour bus that they use to travel all across the United States caught fire on Sunday. No one was hurt but I am sure it was scary for the band members, the wives, and the children who all tour with them. Here is a short story I found about it on KWTX.com
Sanctus Real’s Bus Burns
PITTSBURGH (June 5, 2012)–Members of the Christian band Sanctus Real escaped injury after their tour bus caught fire and was consumed by flames before dawn Sunday on the Pennsylvania Turnpike.
Bass player Dan Gartley said the bus driver spotted the flames in his side mirror and quickly pulled over, awakened band members, their wives and children and rushed them all off the bus.
The vehicle was soon ablaze along with all of their personal belongings, including laptop computers, cell phones and wallets, but a trailer containing the band’s equipment escaped serious damage.
Gartley said the band members thank God that no one was hurt and that their equipment was undamaged, and says Sanctus Real will continue to play its scheduled shows, starting this weekend in Atlanta.
Pray for Sanctus Real
This tweet was sent over twitter shortly after it happened.
Dan says that they lost all personal belongings, but are all safe. Please keep them in your prayers. #SanctusReal #bus #fire #pray
I think that we can all agree to pray for the band members, family and especially the children. This has to be hard on them and they lost not only equipment but personal belongings. We can also be thankful that it was only stuff that they lost. Stuff can be replace. So take a moment to pray for these brothers and sisters in Christ and share this article so more people can be praying!
