Thanks for the prayers. Latest is that we wouldn’t let Paul stay with us, so he did go to the Rescue Mission as we hoped. Then he got hired by a trucking company in SC. He got on a bus this morning and is headed there. Don’t know how long it will last, his job record is very poor.

Well, the job didn’t work out and the company sent Paul back on a bus. We told him that he couldn’t stay here and needed to go back to the Rescue Mission. That brought on a bunch of threats and foul names. So for The last two days we have heard nothing else from him.

Dennis I am sorry. But also as a pastor that helped many families through similar situations I am proud of you for sticking to the boundaries. I know it hurts but you're doing the right thing. Don't forget it, and don't listen to the manipulation.

Update

After many weeks we’ve finally heard from Paul.

He’s alive and well and working for a different trucking company. Currently waiting for a load and a lead driver in a town in Connecticut. More rational and polite than he’s been in a couple years. Hoping that he’s finally taking meds for his schizophrenia. He has a new bank account that won’t let him withdraw but he can write checks, so we wired him $ to buy food and he sent a check which has cleared. He has to put in 100 hours with a lead driver before he can drive on his own. He’s got 53 hours in now. Keep praying for his spiritual and mental health and for our wisdom in how to deal with him.
Your Humble and Obedient Servant,

Dennis
