Apologies and Updates

You all have been so wonderful in praying for us during these last 3 years while we travail in tears and prayers for "Hoss". And it has been just inconsiderate of me not to be updating you. Many of you have sent me prayers that continue to hang on our Wall of Prayer for him. 

He arrived back in Florida on March 4th and he is doing amazing. We just had our first official visit with him last Saturday. He is so full of joy and peace; like we haven't seen for a real long time.We have filled many bottles. God has counted the tears. We can't. But I am confident that, above all, God's name will be magnified through this.
 





Last week, He participated in the yearly A.C.E. convention for the state and did very well. The basketball team won first. He received 1st place for shot put and discus throwing too. Another first place in the category of black and white still life photography.
 

He also won 2nd place on his Science Paper.
 

"Hoss" has always had the potential to be an amazing leader. He has had many bumps along the way. This momma heart of mine is so proud of the man he is becoming. God is certainly molding him into a truly beautiful testimony of His Work. There will be more bumps, I'm sure of it, but we are resting in the progress made and praising God from whom all blessings flow.

It's so wonderful to see the awesome progress that "Hoss" has made. While it has been a difficult journey for you all at times, this journey has touched the lives of so many - and will continue to do so. You and your family are a huge inspiration to me. Love you, Patty - and by the way, the pictures of your visit with him are fantastic! I love seeing all of those happy faces!
