Sad Dad

Tina Timm, soldier When Tina was sworn into the Wisconsin Air National Guard it was one of my proudest moments ever.

Tina is an inspiration to me. She and her brother truly make me feel like life is worth living and their presence on Earth is the my purpose in life.

Both of my children avoided all the stupid stuff I didn't growing up and they have been model citizens with a tremendous faith in God. A faith I did not find until I was 23 years old.

Tina is being tested now like she has never been tested before... and she is struggling. She just completed her 2nd week (of 8) at Basic Training in Lackland TX.

I received her 1st letter, the only correspondence in 2 weeks, and it made me cry and drop to my knees in prayer. Then I called our Pastor who once was a Chaplin at Lackland and asked him to pray and activate our churches prayer chain. I believe in the power of prayer and I believe God moved immediately to comfort and strengthen Tina.

I'm asking you to please pray as well that the next 6 weeks not be a problem for Tina to complete. She is not having any trouble physically and she couldn't tell us exactly what the struggle is but she really misses home and her family (much more then when she completed her 1st year of college).

I sent off a letter immediately (express mail) and then I went and purchased two dozen greeting cards with the intent to mail one a day now until she completes basic. Once again I ask, please support Tina Timm through your prayers.
