July 19, 2012

Jason had two appointments today, yet he ended up staying at the Naval Base Hospital campus for nearly five hours. He was attempting to get a few things corrected, as well as find out the status of some supplies. I requested supplies about 4-weeks ago and still nothing has shown up. The  "stop-gap" supplies keep things going and he is okay, again for a few days, but I will need to head over to pick up a couple more tomorrow, when we take the girls to their appointments. From what we have been told, the supplies are coming, they just haven't gotten here yet.

Linda is doing most of the packing, as she wants to have some level of organization to the stuff we'll be driving back with. I told her I could get the packing done in a matter of a couple of hours, and she said she would rather do it, and let me stick to the heavy lifting (moving boxes to the truck). Anthony Netto is helping us move some of the stuff up when he comes up a couple of days after us, so that makes it a bit easier to bring it all back home. I just want to be sure I can get my bike secure to the back of the Explorer. Actually, that sort of reminds me of something.

I have recently been made aware of an issue with my  fund raising page, for the 2-day bike ride, 200 miler. Some folks are a little shy and would like to sponsor, but don't want their name to be shown. There is an option to go with "anonymous", and you can still offer any amount you would like to use, and no one will know who it is that just donated $200 or $20. I would like to get more funds coming in, and see if it is possible to reach over $5,000. That would be really cool. Anyway, just go to the www.wounded.EOD.org page and select 'Riders'. A drop down menu will provide a list of all the riders signed up and click on my name. That should take you to my donation page, and then just follow the directions for making a donation. It will take you to a page that has, as one of the questions, if you would like to make it anonymous. When that is done, you'll be done. A big thank you, to all those who have donated so far, it is very much appreciated.

Take care and stay positive, and Thank you, for all the continued prayers and all the support.

  1. What comforting words! Praying!!!!
    Revelation 21:1-4 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God. And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
