Prayers needed

Well everyone, I come to you today asking for you to please keep my son Robbie Jr and his wife and 2 children in your prayers.
We knew for about a month now that Robbie received orders to deployment and would be leaving in the middle of August.Well, we were hit this past week that he would be leaving this coming Thursday.
Now, I know that when my son signed up for the Air Force that this is something that we have to face and I am very proud of him. But it doesn't change the fact that I am still his Mom and he is still and always will be my baby and being the mother that I am I will always be concerned for him.






I am at peace also knowing that the Lord will always be with him since he accepted him in his life 5 years ago.Robbie was called to the ministry 4 years ago and has been serving the Lord faithfully.
I do not know what the Lord has in store for him but I just pray that the Lord will keep him safe and open up that door where he can witness and be that shining light for him. I know there is nothing more powerful than the power of prayer so I do appreciate each and everyone of you and I love you all!

I will be busy this week going to Charleston and sending him off. We also will be bringing his wife and children back with us to stay while he is gone.Sorta bittersweet... I will be blessed with having my grandbabies here....but I'm having to say good-bye to my baby as he goes far away from home!

I have included you and your family in my prayers! No matter what the greatest thing is that your son is not alone and that the Lord is with him. The Lord is with you and your family at home as well. That in of itself always comforts me in times of trouble. God bless you all!
