UPDATE: Son, Q., NEEDS prayers, PLEASE!

OK come to find out this is all an online course so YAY if it happens he won’t have the driving. He left a message with admissions and they called him back. They answered all of his questions and told him he could do all of the necessary application online. So he’s done that. They will review his application , get all of his transcripts and other information and send him a response within 24 hours if he’s accepted and what he must do. Another YAY, my sister started this very course before she started taking care of my Mom & Dad. She didn’t finish because there is just no way for her to concentrate. So this is VERY doable for him. Of course the studying and buckling down is ALL ON HIM. We will do all we can to help him out with a good calm learning environment. If he can start in the beginning of the new year YAY!. THANK YOU ALL for the prayers. I GREATLY appreciate it.

He is 31 still living at home with us. NO job. He is the one who had testicular cancer last year but he is so far ok with that after chemo and he 's about to go into his 2nd year of regular checkups and evaluations for that.

Now the prayers…He has made a decision. He will go to a small college (about 45 minutes away) tomorrow and talk to them to see what he has to do to enter the 1 year Medical Coding and Billing course. It’s a step and I’m asking for prayers that if it’s God’s will that it will become a reality and he will be able to go through the course, finish, get the certification needed and get a job in that field. But first step first, tomorrow. He’s nervous but hey he went 3 years to a MUCH larger college (didn’t finish) but went 3 years so he should be able to handle this. Now this will mean daily driving back and forth so prayers needed for that too (I hate that Hwy , always so busy). I GREATLY appreciate it. Lord PLEASE let this be your will for him. This has been very emotional for all of us for him to just do “something positive” to take that first step.

PLEASE pray that he can get the right information and have the right mindset when he goes to talk to them tomorrow. THANK YOU!

A Prayer for Students

Loving Father,
I stand before You in the midst of confusion and complexities of life.
My future sometimes seems distant and unknown. Give me, O Lord,
the vision to see the path You set before me. Grant me the courage
to follow Your way, that through the gifts and talents You have given me,
I may bring Your life and Your love to others. I ask this through Jesus
Christ Our Lord, Amen. :latin_cross:

I pray that God blesses his decision to go to the small college. May God help him through the courses that he takes and grants him a job in that field. May He also help you drive there back and forth safely.

We’re waiting to get a reply on whether he is accepted or not but hubby said from what he saw if he is accepted grants would most likely cover all of his course for that year. I sure hope so. We could pay for it but it would empty most of our savings. We also have to wait and see IF he can start in the spring or has to wait for the Fall of 2018, the way the course is set up.

Again THANK YOU ALL for the prayers and remembering him. If he goes through this course and gets job ding this it could really be a big deal for him and the beginning of him actually doing for himself.

Praying for your son
