#3 Update on Thomas

25 Oct

Sunday was a special day for our family. Thomas called!! It was his second phone call from when he left about 7 weeks ago and it will be his last call until his homecoming in about two weeks.
He seems to be doing well. This week, he completed the 24 hour hike which covered a radius of 50 miles. It was very strenuous on his body but he was grateful that he finished.
It’s hard to get alot of details as we only have a short time to talk him. He did, however, ask for prayer concerning his PT tests. It seems that he can complete the amount of push ups required as well as the time limit for his runs. However, it is very difficult for him to complete all the sit ups. Perhaps, the sit ups are more difficult because of his former accident and his recuperation from a shattered pelvis. He is trying his best and so desires to succeed. I’m sure he would appreciate your prayers!
As I’m sure you can imagine, we are eagerly looking forward to Thomas’ return which will be on November 10th.
Thank you, again, for your prayers and the care that you have expressed through your comments and cards! They are greatly appreciated and have not only encouraged us but Thomas as well!

    What a wonderful call that must have been to hear news from Thomas! I will be praying for his continued strength and a safe journey home. I’m sure this experience has been one of learning and growth for him.

    (I’ll also be praying for peace for your family as you await his homecoming!)

    What a joyous week it has been, indeed. Blessings to you dear friend!
