Several of you have been praying for friends of ours who are going through a real storm. I wrote to check in with her on her son’s new school, and this was the report from her:
‘We got off to a very BAD start. Of course, the typical bullying is still going on, but just 6 days in and while playing a game of tag, two girls accused him of continually grabbing their breasts. It was a horrible ordeal and no one could get the stories straight and no one saw it happen, but because Andrew was new he was sacrificed and sent to ISS [In-School Suspension] for 5 days. He did not do it. He was devastated and so were we. He even told me as I tucked him in bed the day of the accusations, " God knows I didn’t do that." I reminded him of the story of Joseph and we prayed daily to get through it. His character obviously was a shining example of God’s grace and he was allowed to get out a day early. Today is his third day back in class. He is happy to go to school. I am hoping that it doesn’t happen again, but it could… ‘
He will also have his quarterly cancer follow-up soon. Please continue to believe God with me for a divine reversal in this young man’s circumstances. He is obviously going to do something marvelous for the kingdom of God if he doesn’t grow weary of the fight he’s in.
