Joel’s mom moved him out of state from the rest of his family. Now that he is graduated, he tried to join the military but did not pass their entrance exam. I feel like he has lost his self esteem and has given up on trying to get a trade or furthering his education. I pray he finds God’s plan and has a long and successful, not a discouraged/isolated life. We pray that he always remembers there is family here in Iowa that will always be here for him.
If you want to understand what Easter is really about, this song from Chris Tomlin “At the Cross (Love Ran Red)” really sums up best what really happened when Jesus gave up his life for all our sins.
