Where We Are Now

After finding and remediating mold twice in our Colorado home, we abandoned ship in October 2008. Because of the high levels of exposure, our entire family was affected. After months of seeing different specialists for all of the problems, we came to Arizona to begin comprehensive treatment to rid our bodies of the toxic buildup. In August 2009 we moved into a larger home, four bedrooms, south of Tucson, north of Mexico. I am doing my daily radio program/ writing from that location. Thanks for praying for us. We really feel it.

Tuesday on the radio program, Kim told us a story about her son, Carson. This is a picture of Carson and his friend from Waste Management, David. A picture doesn't paint the whole scene but it sure does a lot for me. I'm telling you, if Oprah hasn't heard about this story, someone should tell her quickly.

The weird thing is, I've been talking with David for a number of months myself. His route takes him to our house every Tuesday. He's always telling me what I can and can't toss out in the trash. In one conversation he mentioned something about having family back east.

"Where?" I said.

"You wouldn't know the place," he said.

"What state?"

"West Virginia."

I couldn't believe we're both from the same state. He played basketball at a high school near where I grew up. Now we both live under the wide open skies of Colorado.

Carson has an amazing way of getting past all the exterior stuff and making you smile from the heart. If you didn't get to hear the story, go to the Chrisfabrylive.org site and listen to Tuesday's broadcast--about 10 minutes into the program. And bring your Kleenex.

Loved the story, very inspiring. However I'd love to read the newspaper article about Carson and David. I checked the online paper for the Denver Post and could find nothing with the title "Unconditional Friendship" Or any article titled "Carson". When was the article in the paper? Would it be possible for you to put the article online? I'd love to pass the article information on to my best friend who also has an autistic child.

Thanks

Hi,

I'm Brenda and I listen to your program while I am at work. I find your program very uplifting. The interaction with the callers and the guest are so down to earth and close to home.

I do not know much about the Evangelical Manifesto as a matter of fact, the first time I heard of it was on your program. From what I could understand the question is - Are Christians serving Christ and living Christ-like as much as possible even in the Political arena.

I question that myself as well. I often pray and ask the the LORD to continue to purge me so that I may serve Him and others according to HIS WORD. That is so very important!

What if someone in their own "power" actually thinks that they are serving GOD the way they should only to find out in that GREAT DAY the were wrong? Oh my LORD.

God Bless you and your family and please pray for me and mine.

Sister Brenda

Dierdre,
I'm looking for that original article. It ran in the Colorado Springs Gazette. I'll try to find it and put in a link to it.

i enjoyed the story of Carson - but probably not for the reason as most of the people that replied. I was disguested to listen to the mother with her obvious tone when she referred to him as "a garbage man" like he was beneath befriending. She is a snob. So i am happy that her prejudace (sp)additude has not affected the love in her child's heart.
