"A journey of a thousand miles begins with one step".....please help Toa take that step. August 22, 2014, it was time- Friday Night Lights! Toa was playing his first game of his senior season (actually a pre-season game) in Tallahassee at 7:00 PM; excitement was an understatement. The team had been working all summer to prepare. Toa was heading into his senior year as a committed NCAA-Division 1 athlete and scheduled to attend University of Alabama- Birmingham in the fall on a full football scholarship. Needless to say, life was pretty sweet! At 7:06 PM, things took a terrible turn; Toa went down on the 6th play of the game to never take the field again. Our worst fear realized; a torn ACL- we were beyond devastated. What I dreaded more than the injury was the phone call I needed to make to the coaching staff at UAB to let them know what was going on. Without hesitation, they agreed to honor his scholarship; I can't tell you the relief we had. That relief was short lived because at the end of the football season we learned that the UAB football program was shutting down- and taking Toa's hopes and dreams with it. The past 7 months have been very trying. Schools that had a previous interest in Toa aren't willing to take a chance on him without seeing him play football again. Taking into consideration eligibility and opportunity, it is apparent that our only solution is to send Toa to a Post Graduate program at a prep school. I am confident the one we have selected and that he has been accepted to, will give him the absolute best chance of being recruited by a Division 1 college(s) again to earn a fulll scholarship and get that college education he so deserves. However, the price of the school is out of my reach; even with some assistance to attend. The school is called East Coast Prep. It is owned and operated by a very well respected Coach named Dick Bell. He has played in the NFL, been a sports agent and a recruiter and is very well connected. The school is located in Great Barrington, Massachusetts. As a mom, it has been extremely difficult watching him go through all he has gone through this year. Toa has handled this stumble in the road with grace; never letting anyone know how truly discouraged he was. I know that so many of you have kept up with him since he first verbally committed to UAB in July 2014; I am sure your hearts break, as does mine, watching the events that have unfolded since. I am putting my pride aside, trusting in God and asking you for help. I know our goal is high, but when the sky is the limit you have to aim high! Please remember a contribution of ANY amount would help and be greatly appreciated. I am confident that Toa has what it takes to achieve great success in football and in life......he just needs a chance to make it happen. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for being on this journey with us and taking the time to read our story. Philippians 4:6- Dont worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done- NLT **Donations can also be made directly to an account at FirstAtlantic Bank- contact me for the details if you prefer that method, Thank you. http://de.gofund.me/Toa-ECP-Bound

asking for prayer for my son who is a pastor. he is looking for a job in the field of helping and counseling people. he is an awesome young man that has a heart for people. he has had a hard life and needs a break. it seems like every time he thinks a door is opening for him it gets slammed in his face. he is trying so hard. he gets paid very little as a pastor but doing Gods work is his passion. He just needs a break on finding a job to help with his expenses. I know there is something out there for him. but just some prayers and lifting him up would be very much appreciated.

Please pray that I will have peace, stay strong, and not get weary, from all of the unexpected financial stress that my surgery, on April 30th, is costing me. I am a single woman that works between 65-70 hrs a week, between my full-time and part-time job. I thought I had medical insurance at my part-time job, but come to find out, it is only a medical payment plan. Therefore, I have to pay all of the hospital cost myself. I have already paid over $5,000 out of pocket just for the doctor doing the surgery, the anesthesiologist, and a down payment to the hospital. Then, yesterday I received another unexpected bill for $600, from my pre-op appointment last Tuesday. I will be out of work probably 4 weeks, from my full-time job, and 6-8 from my part-time. I have always worked hard, and it was over 28 yrs ago, when my youngest daughter was born, since I have missed that much work. I am just feeling overwhelmed right now. Thank you in advance for your prayers.
