Update on Augustus...

I want to give you an update on Augustus who was on The Way of the Master Radio on May 22 some of you will remember that he was the young man that joined us at church the next night.

You'll be encouraged to know that he emailed me this weekend and said that he has been plugged into a church in San Antonio, TX where he is currently living.

He also shared that when he was with us, both Friday and Saturday after the radio program, he explained to that, "this is the first time that I haven't been drunk or high in years".

Please pray for Augustus. He received a tragic call this weekend. His brother was killed in Iraq (he stepped on a land mine) Augustus is really broken. He called Keith, my father-in-law, and Keith comforted Him with scripture. We also have been able to minister to Augustus through email.

I thought you'd be encouraged by what he recently wrote on his myspace profile:

"i just love to wake up in the morning and feel good and give thanks to the lord for another day that i am alive and for another beautiful day in which i get to live in because you never know what day will be your last. "

Thank you so much for the update! I have been wondering what happened with Augustus and was planning on asking you about it. I will continue to pray for Augustus and his family.
