An Eleventh Thing I Think: Pray for Matt

Matt Parish, a former youth groupee and lead guitarist for Ho-Ag, was robbed and assulted outside of an apartment in Oakland, California last weekend while on Ho-Ag's second national tour. Matt apparently went outside of the home of a friend to talk on his cell phone, was approached by seven individuals who demanded the phone and his wallet, and beat him when he refused. He was scheduled to be in surgery this morning, and will fly back to Boston (his home) as soon as he is able. Ho-Ag was forced to cancel the remainder of their tour, which, I'm sure, is a huge disappointment to all of its members. Pray for Matt, and the rest of Ho-Ag, as they cope with this senseless act of violence.
