Happy Birthday Ty! Tyler turned 12 on March 17th, and we feel this is the year to really press in on praying for his salvation once more...

Can you pray for Tyler? I have been so blessed lately with such an enormous sense of assurance, an answer to much prayer, and such a blessing - one I cannot ever describe in only words on a page- er, screen. But Ty has confessed in youth group that he does not feel completely assured, and still questions why God would want him what with all of his sin struggles. We have talked and talked about how every person sins (there is not one righteous)but I think he is discouraged about his particluar sin struggles, and does not seem to feel that he is getting any control over his impulses- something he particularily struggles with. Pray that he will be encouraged by our words and that he will be assured of his salvation, or saved, whatever the case may be. We do not know the state of his soul for now, only God does- but we are seeing some grief over his sin and we are praying hard that this will lead to his seeing his need for a savior: for Jesus Christ's redeeming blood;for God to be God of his life. Please pray for us that God will give us wisdom in shepherding his heart. We so love him and desire for him to be saved, and have assurance of his salvation and God's grace over him, but we also want to be content in God's timing for this and trust in God that this time will come, if it is in His will. Thank you guys :)
