CCM fans are offering prayers and support to members of I AM THEY and Citizen Way after it was revealed on social media that their tour bus caught on fire on Thursday during a scheduled tour stop in Escanaba, Michigan.
"Everyone is safe. We’re not exactly sure how it started but the bus that Citizen Way and we were traveling on caught fire," I AM THEY posted to Facebook along with photos that appeared to show significant damages to the bus. "Please keep us in your prayers as we try to figure out what the next step is. We love you all."
The Citizen Way website now features a donor box fundraising campaign with a goal of $250,000 to the non-profit Generosity Rocks to help supply the ministry with a new tour bus. Frontman Ben Calhoun shared in a message to fans, "Despite this loss, the Bible says in Romans 8 that 'we know God uses all things for good.'"
