Prayer Request

Every Sunday at church it seems that someone approaches Neil, or shouts to him as he's leaving, or greets him as he picks up the littles, or starts a conversation with him as he snuggles a baby in the nursery with, "Have a good trip Neil!!!!"
i think he thought it was me - telling everyone he was going, but finally he realized that word of his travel was getting out in the children's prayer time.
Charter - who has to be reminded every. single. morning to brush his teeth - without fail remembers to request prayer for his dad every time a trip is pending.
Neil was starting to get a little annoyed by the attention so finally after church one day he said gruffly, "Charter! Quit telling everyone i'm leaving every time i'm going on a trip!"
"Oh Dad, don't be embarrassed LOTS of kids pray for their parents." Charter smiled genuinely at his daddy.
i guess neil will just have to suck it up.

It's true! I've heard him ask for prayer for his daddy before. Last week Hallie asked for prayer for my leg. I was embarrassed initially but then became thankful that I matter enough for her to mention
