Prayers for my family
« on: September 01, 2005, 11:37:36 PM »
Well, it has come time for me to have to go back to Holy Cross (aka 'Mt. Lathos') and leave my family.

Please don't pray for me, but instead pray for my wife and four children who had the misfortune of having me as their husband and father.

Things are even more difficult than we had imagined they would be (which would be hard to believe if I hadn't lived through it myself). We knew it would be tough, but now we are in the position of too much strain for us all to bear the seperation involved.

So, while I'm forced to be away, please pray for my wife to endure the loneliness and financial hardships I am forced to place on her, and pray that my children also know that thier father loves them.

Thank you.
