Marshall is healing, both emotionally and physically. His jaw is still a bit swollen, and an ugly red scratch still mars his right temple. But overall we are praising God for his health. Many people have been overwhelmingly kind and supportive of Marshall and our family offering help, prayer, and words of encouragement. A few […]

As Marshall was waiting at the bus stop for me to pick him up from school 3 boys accosted him picking on him and trying to get him to hand over his cell phone–which he didn’t have. He left the bus stop to head back into the school (It’s only about 100 yards away) to […]
