Barbara Dransfield, 63 year old grandmother who was already an amputee, was left in a coma after two masked men, who have been identified as Stephen Morton and Nathan Clark savagely assaulted her and even caged her in her home. They had broken in to retrieve a small debt owed by her son over drugs.
The two men reportedly burst into the home late at night looking for the woman’s son who wasn’t home. When he wasn’t there, they attacked the elderly woman.
The two men have since been arrested and faced trial. Stephen Morton was convicted of inflicting grievous bodily harm and conspiracy to commit robbery and Nathan Clark, pleaded guilty to causing great bodily harm with intent and conspiracy to commit robbery before the trial. They have both been jailed.
Please pray for Barbara as she continues to recover.

We remember before our God and Father your work produced by faith, your labor prompted by love, and your endurance inspired by hope in our Lord Jesus Christ. For we know, brothers and sisters loved by God, that he has chosen you, because our gospel came to you not simply with words but also with power, with the Holy Spirit and deep conviction. You know how we lived among you for your sake. You became imitators of us and of the Lord, for you welcomed the message in the midst of severe suffering with the joy given by the Holy Spirit.”
