Please pray for Tom...

I was just getting to sleep last night when we got a night watch call. I spent about an hour on the phone in a classic "I think I'm done with drinking" discussion. Tom had been diagnosed with a mental illness but had lost families, girlfriends, cars, DUI, the usual story.

We talked. We laughed. We cried. We prayed. He promised to show up at a meeting at 7am this morning. He didn't know I have "spies" looking for him there and I've not heard the follow-up but I get that he was a real candidate and, for an hour last night, was willing.

Let's just nudge God's grace his direction and see if we have another one we can help...

Thanx - I knew you'd help...

Prayer for Tom on the way. Late? Hopefully, when he next makes a call, it will be during a more sane hour. Hopefully he made the 7AM gig.


Hey, curious as to why you removed your "I Follow These Peeps" list on your sidebar?

And yes I KNOW who curiosity killed!

I hope that he showed up. Glad that you were there to get some of the message to him. Hopefully, he heard you.
