David Wilson served as our inspiration for founding Steps2Hope. (History) David endured many months of painful rehabilitation after spending five hours with his face pressed into the floor and his legs bent underneath him. He was buried under 12 feet of concrete. David and his parents experienced the grace of Christ in many ways from family, friends and perfect strangers. The prayers and generosity of Christian people caring for them touched them deeply.
Upon hearing of Andrew Smith’s battle injuries, David’s father’s, Mark, heart went out to Andrew’s parents. Mark knew the pain and feelings of helplessness they were experiencing all too well. He understood the roller coaster of emotions, worries, and struggles they were facing. Remembering what he and the family had gone through and how his church and other Christians had expressed their love for his family he knew that God was calling him and other like minded friends to begin Steps2Hope.
