Michael Update

Michael is doing well in the program right now. He is, however, really getting homesick. They had a labor day picnic, much like the Memorial day picnic that we went to before. We were unable to attend the labor day picnic though. Michael was pretty bummed about that. I haven’t talked about the cost of sending Michael to MnTC. It is very expensive and we will be paying on this for several years after Michael has graduated and come home. We also have the expenses of getting Michael home for his passes and going to visit him in MN, keeping him supplied with spending money,stamps, snacks etc… I have been strongly encouraged by several to put it out on my blog that you can donate to help defer the cost of Michaels stay at MnTC. If this is something that you feel the Lord wants you to do then please contact me at lanie_6_1994@yahoo.com and I will get you in contact with the people who can help you do just that. I am only putting this out there because there may be some who have wanted to help but didn’t know how to approach the subject. We feel strongly that this investment in Michaels life is well worth every penny and every sacrifice that we have had to pay to get him the help he so desperately needed. God has been faithful to us and to Michael in so many ways.
If you are on Michaels correspondence list please write to him. He is feeling really disconnected from everyone right now. He wants to know what is going on in everyones life, what they are doing, feeling, everything. He is struggling in school right now, so please pray for him to be able to focus and get the work done. The type of school work they have is PACE’s and my experience with Michael and homeschooling is that PACE’s don’t work well for him at all. This is something that he is going to have to overcome with everything else going on at the same time. All in all he is doing great, but he is having a hard time right now.

  1. I am going to bring a card to church for everyone to write him a short note of encouragement. His list is mainly family. Katie I have asked to have you and Michael added as you are his youth pastors. I have yet to hear from them if they have approved my request. I don’t want to give out his address and them not allow him to have the mail. I will see if I can get some answers on that soon. John I think that you may be able to be on there also because of your position as Associate pastor. I will have to check into that. thanks for wanting to write. He really really needs to hear from home!
