Religious leaders are usually the ones taking care of others; but a Salyersville, Ky. minister is the one in need.

First Baptist Church Pastor Matthew Gullion is at the UK Medical Center being treated for severe burns from a lawn mowing accident.

He was on his riding mower when he hit a gas line near his house, causing an explosion that burned him and destroyed the mower.

He is listed in stable condition, but family members say he has a long way to go.

They say church services will go on as scheduled while Gullion recovers.
