Thanks for the prayers, they are working!!! 


Sister, prayers are one of the strongest weapons Christians have. I think it an honor to pray for others, least to me anyway.

Mitchell's youth night at church went great!   He is doing so good!  The move was a very positive thing.  I know it was God's will because the devil has been fighting us so hard since we moved.  The closing had to be delayed; then the first night in the house, when we woke up, the toilets were all backed up; Mitchell had his first fender-bender; it seems like problems every turn, but that just let's me know that God is at work.  The good news is that Mitchell has a girlfriend.  Her name is McKayla.  She is a really good christian girl.  He is soooooo excited.  He really is doing good.  Thank you so much for all your prayers and thank you so much for thinking of Mitchell.
 
We are still short a computer at home, but I will keep you updated as much as possible while I am at work.  I hope everything is going good for all of you!!!   Grin

Hello Sister Tami,

That's great news and I'm happy to hear this. As Christians, it's nice to hear some good news from time to time, especially when it involves our young people. You and your family will remain in my prayers.

Love In Christ,
Tom

Mitchell is still doing really good.  The accident he had is causing us some difficulty, but we are doing good.  The lady who hit him has decided she needs a lawyer.  You know how that goes.  Mitchell did pull out in front of her, but she was going too fast.  However, the city policeman did not question her because she called her "head highway patrol friend" to the scene to stand with her.  Therefore, they did not question her at all.  It was a 35 mile an hour speed zone.  She claims she slammed on her brakes and tried to stop.  If she had been going full speed, I would hate to see what she would have done to my car.  I have a Toyota Highlander SUV.  It is a pretty good size heavy made SUV.  She completely spun it and had it heading in the opposite direction and bend the tire completely sideways.  She had to be going pretty fast.  She was fine when she left the scene but has since went the the ER and hired an attorney.  Please pray that God will move in this situation.  Mitchell is my son, but she was in the wrong too, just not punished as he was.  Pray that God will handle this situation. 

Mitchell and McKayla are still talking, and he is very happy.  He said that he could not believe that a girl that pretty would ever like him.  Please pray that this continues.  He is still making male friends at school and seems to be heading in the right direction.  Thanks for all the prayers.

Well, Mitchell went to court yesterday, and his ticket got dropped because the lady in the other car did not show up.  At least he didn't have to pay a fine or lose any points off his license.  Now we just have to wait to see how much her attorney will be asking for.  The insurance company had to total my car because they said it would cost more to fix than what it is worth.  I do not understand how, if she was going less than 30 miles per hour, she could do over $8,000 damage to my Toyota Highlander.  But I have given to God to handle.

Mitchell and McKayla are not together right now.  They decided that since they were in different towns, to break up.  Mitchell, of course, blames himself, that he is not socially acceptable and overweight and ugly.  Of course, none of this is true, but his self confidence is still low.  Please pray for him.  They really do like each other, and if it is meant for them to date each other for now, then God will work it out.  They are both devoted christians, but I believe her parents are really strict and wouldn't allow her to talk on the phone or computer much, which put a damper on their relationship.  Please pray that God will move in this situation for what he wants and what he knows is best.  Mitchell is a little down, but my niece is going to spend the day with him tomorrow and that usually cheers him up.  She is his cousin and youth minister, and he talks to her when he will not talk to anyone else.  Thanks for the prayers, please keep them coming!!!

Sorry it has been a while, but I hope all is going well for all of you. 

Everything here is still going.  It seems the more I praise and thank God for all that is going so right in Mitchell's life, the more I get knocked down.  The devil is fighting so hard right now.  Mitchell seems to have regressed some in his self-esteem issues. I'm not sure what happened.  He had one more therapy session left, but the therapist feels he needs to keep coming right now; she said that "he is still doing good but is having a hard time right now".  I am not sure what that means.  I feel it has a lot to do with his dad.  He feels his dad is hard on him and doesn't like him.  That he is not the son his dad wanted.  His dad just wants him to learn responsibility.  He takes him out to work with him when he goes to pull his bread up (he's a sara lee breadman).  And he is trying to teach Mitch the fast, right way to do it, and Mitch takes it as him critizing.  Mitchell tried to impress him by doing something with the church for the school he goes to, and feels his dad didn't approve of that either.  I don't know.  I have gotten to where I can cry every night.  I have been up so high now with everything going good and giving God praise, and I know it is just the devil trying to knock me down.

Mitchell is feeling low and confused. Pray that he will realize the MAN God made him to be and that there is a girl out there somewhere made just for him.  He feels no girl wants him and thus brings up the old feelings of being homosexual.  He knows deep in his hear that is not true, but the devil can fight so hard sometimes, especially when you are down on yourself.

Please pray for Mitchell and me.  We both need strength right now.

I hope you all know that I am praying for each of you.  You are my prayer warriors that I lean on in times of need.  I appreciate y'all more that words can say.  Thank you for all the prayers and advice.

Having been a son and a Dad both I can understand the situation. It is easy to sound negative and judgmental when instructing our children and it is just as easy to forget to give encouragement when needed and compliments when they are deserved. Both of these are things that our children do need now and then right along with instruction and correction. Looking at it from the opposite side it is just as easy to take notice of the instruction and correction and not to take note of when the others are done. Sometimes it is of importance for the parent to take the time with our children to explain and emphasize both with them so that they will take notice and fully understand that we do love them and want the best for them.

My prayers for you all continue.

Thought I would let you know that Mitchell signed up for baseball at school.  He said he is really loving it.  He plays his first game tonight.  I won't get to see it because it is out of town and I had to work, but I know he will have fun!  I am hoping that this will also bring him and his dad closer.  His dad told him that he would get out and practice with him throwing, batting and catching pop-ups.  Please pray that Mitchell will do good and have fun!  He is really excited.  This has him talking about signing up for soccer.  And he really seems to be getting along with the other guys on the team, which, to me, is a good thing.  I will keep you updated as to how he does on the team.  But he really seems to be excited.

Hey everyone!!  I know it has been a while since I was on, but Mitch has been keeping me busy with baseball practice and games, but he seems to be enjoying it.

I have a prayer request that I would like for you to pray about.  Mitchell went to our church youth camp last year, which he loved.  That is where he started on the right path to Jesus Christ and has been doing great so far.  Our church camp this year will be the week of, I believe, June 13-18.  Mitchell had been talking since last year about how he was looking forward to going back to camp this year.  Last week, he stated that he did not think he was going to go this year.  He really needs to go.  This is so uplifting and encouraging for the youth.  They get to spend time with people their own age worshipping God and enjoying so many blessings.   Please pray that he will decide to go.  I know it would help him stay strong.
 
We also have a youth day for our church statewide on April 25th.  As far as I know, he is going to that.  Please pray that God will bless him there and place the longing in his heart to go to camp.  I know camp did so much for him last year.  Pray that his friends from camp last year that will be there will be able to convince him to go to camp with them.

Thanks everyone!!!!

Sister,

I will be praying that Mitchell does want to go. I agree with you that he needs to go. Anything to strengthen him in CHRIST should be done. These things and many more are habits that should be formed for life.

Love In Christ,
Tom

Philippians 1:21-23 ASV  21  For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.  22  But if to live in the flesh, if this shall bring fruit from my work, then what I shall choose I know not.  23  But I am in a strait betwixt the two, having the desire to depart and be with Christ; for it is very far better:

Hello Everyone!  I know it has been a while since I've been on, but moving, working and ball has kept me busy. 

Everything really seems to be going pretty good.  Mitchell still seems happy. 

However, the devil is really fighting me this week.  It seems that things are going so good, he has to step in and stir the pot.  I know it is the devil.  He keeps throwing things out here and there to make me doubt what God has done in Mitchell's life.   The mother in me worries anyway but it just seems like this week is really tough.  Please pray for God's guidance for me.  We have come so far.  Please pray that God will help me and give me the strength to hold on and accept all that he has done and not to question or worry.  Just accept and believe. 

This time of year is hard for me since it is Mother's Day, Father's Day, the anniversary of my mother's death and my father's birthday.  It will be hard for me all the way through September (which is the anniversary of my father's death) and of course then the holidays that you always spend with family starts.  I miss them so much and I miss being able to go to them for their advice and guidance.  They were such strong christians.  To have lost them at such an early age hurts.  They were my best prayer warriors, counselors, advisors and shoulder to cry on. 

I really need your prayers right now.  Mitchell and I both do.  Please pray that God will send him a "girlfriend" that he can spend time with and talk to.  He says that he feels there is no one out there who would want him as a "boyfriend".  Please pray that God will send the right one along to boost his self esteem.  It is so hard watching him be so down on himself at times.  He feels that he is an awkward, nerdy, geek that girls only want as friends.  He is such a totally awesome young man. 

Sorry to have burdened all of you with this but I just feel a little down and depressed right now and could really use some encouragement.

Thanks everybody!
