5/31 and 6/1 Update

Friends and Family,
Dave has had two amazing days in a row!

Yesterday(31st)was a very cool day because Dave's nephew and wife (Ralph and Quanah Bold) got back from Iraq and went straight to TrustPoint to visit Dave. They were so full of faith after being in such a crazy environment for the last 3 weeks! Faith is always contagious! Iron sharpens iron! We had some awesome prayer time with them and know that God is continuing to heal Dave and work in his life in ways we can't even imagine.

Today(1st) was an awesome day! Dave had some intense leg stretching in therapy today, he said it felt awesome and refreshing to have his legs stretched like they did today.

Dave and Ginnie wanted to share a scripture with everyone today:
2 Corinthians 12:9 "My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness." So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me.

When we are truly weak, God is most powerful in us. Sometimes when we are weak we think we have to "get tough" or "suck it up", but as Paul states here, this is a PERFECT opportunity to see God in all His strength working in our lives when we are weak. Paul goes on to say "For when I am weak, THEN I am strong."

Praise the Lord!! Our God is so good!

Please keep your prayers coming...GOD IS MOVING!


  1. God is so faithful. This was a scripture I read this morning and it made me think of you all...

    "I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened, so that you will know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and what is the surpassing greatness of His power toward us who believe." Ephesians 1:18-19

    Thank you for being a living reminder of the purpose we are called for, and a reminder that our God is mightier than ANY circumstance and that we that believe have great power through Him!! Power to pray for COMPLETE HEALING!

    Praying without ceasing ~

  2. Our dear precious Bailey family. We have had you in our prayers, hearts, and thoughts constantly since the accident. We just returned home last night, so we haven't had a way of letting you know that we are there with you, but know that we are. You are amazing!!! You build our faith instead of us doing it for you. Just know that you are loved in every way. James feels so lost that he's not been able to be there for his buddy, Dave. You know how he loves Dave!!! We will see you as soon as possible. Our love, James & Carolyn
