I know some of you may remember the saga of the father of my 2 year old Godchild. He’s an 18 year old troubled boy who was hospitalized for being suicidal last year, and only a couple months ago called me up again suicidal. He comes from a broken and troubled family. The mother of his child is getting married this coming September, which is also a huge heart ache for him.
Well he has joined the Marines. He passed the drug test, and the written test and has his physical tomorrow. He also finds out tomorrow when he’ll be leaving. Please pray for him. I’m really concerned about his mental health under the stress of basic training. I pray with all my heart that he can make it in the military because I think it will be wonderful at giving him direction, discipline and purpose, as well as self worth. Why he picked one of the most challenging branches of the military I do not know, but if he can’t adjust to military life it will be another failure in his life and I’m afraid he’ll be even worse off than before.
So please if you could pray that God is with him during what is going to be a physically and mentally challenging 13 weeks of basic training I would very much appreciate it.
