Site created on February 26, 2018
Mark is a 48 year old son, brother, husband, father, bumpa and friend. He is well known for his perfectionism and stubbornness but he also has a huge heart. His love for hunting, camping and anything outdoors goes above and beyond anything else. He is an incredibly hard worker and rarely sits down. From sun up to sun down he is always on the go. Many conversations prior to Mark getting sick were regarding him slowing down and enjoying his loved ones. He's so driven to get things done he often forgets that we all just want some of his time.
As many of you know we lost our dad Feb 3, 2014 and this was very hard on all of us. Even in recent conversations Mark still had a hard time speaking of him because they were so close and did so much together. He would tell me, "Charlene, everyone thinks I am so strong, but I am not."
We need to pray for him to be stronger than ever. Strong enough to fight and get through this and not give up. Strong enough to get through everything that he has yet to go through. He has a long challenging road ahead and he will need all of our support.
I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us. (Romans 8:18 )
For I can do everything through Christ,who gives me strength. (Phil 4:13)
