DAVE'S FIRST POST!
Written Oct 30, 2013 8:33pmHi Prayer Warriors,
First of all this is Dave, home from Grand Rapids and now working on therapy in Kalamazoo. God has been so faithful to me and will never leave me. Your prayers have been heard and answered.
In Kalamazoo, I continue to work with physical, occupational and speech therapy. Currently the biggest issue I face is my vision deficits, but I continue to believe that God will restore it to me. I may look like the same physically, but as I continue rehab I realize how much of me has changed. My brain thinks, acts, and processes things differently than before my accident. As I continue to work through the challenges with my team, I continue to remember who my ultimate Healer is. My big goals right now are to return to a job in the near future and start supporting myself and Marissa again as well as returning to driving when my eyes heal enough.
In my transition home, I have the opportunity to cook meals again and help with chores around the house, as well as sharing the testimony that God has put together in me. I hope to also serve at church and at the Kalamazoo House of Prayer.
In conclusion, I look forward to spending the holidays at home with the ones I love. Thank you on behalf of myself and Marissa. We could never have walked this journey without your support. Please continue to pray and journey with us as a new chapter begins.
In Christ love and blessings,

my man is coming home!
if you have not heard already...october 24, 2013 is the big day!
we are thrilled to begin this next BIG step in the journey. the Lord is faithful. faithful. faithful.
Dave will return home with many goals to work towards. This is a complex injury so we are learning together how to adapt to the temporary obstacles. Dave will be in outpatient therapy through Hope Network (Kalamazoo) 5 days a week and learning to adjust to his new way of living at home. Most importantly, we will begin to live life together again. We are not fearful of the challenges ahead, we know that He who began a good work will be faithful to complete it.
Yes, these are His promises that we have been clinging to the entire journey and will continue to believe. We must believe in Him who is greater.
God wants what is best.
He knows what is best.
please continue to pray.
Dave's biggest goals are driving, getting an Athletic Trainer position and running long distance. He also has many cognitive goals to continue striving for. As far as his vision, we will have a eye appointment in a few weeks to see where everything stands and definitely more vision therapy in the future. Please join us in praying!
A lot of people we come into encounter with ask questions like, "Will he ever drive again?" or "Do you think he will work?" I say,
GOD CAN DO THE IMPOSSIBLE IN A SECOND. I am not being naive to my husbands current injuries, I am choosing to believe what the word of God says and standing firm on the promises.
We continue to endure the journey with great faith and confidence! Thank you for praying and for your continued words of support and encouragement. We sure are blessed by YOU!
