Hey guys,


I know you haven't heard from me for a while, sorry about that---this semester has been slightly hellish. Anyways, just wanted to ask you guys to keep me and a group of about 20 other students in your prayers as we head out to China tomorrow morning at about 5:30 AM. We'll be there for about 2 and a half weeks. When I get back, I'll put up some pictures for yinz, if you'd like.


Thanks so much.

I was wondering where you'd gotten off to.  I'll certainly pass along a prayer for your safe journey.

Ok guys I'm getting closer to a job in Columbus, OH...I have my interview, background check, and polygraph on Friday so if you guys shoot off some prayers I'd greatly appreciate it.

Thanks,

Hey guys,

I just want to thank you to all of you who prayed for me and offered me support.  I passed my polygraph and my preinterview and the lady interviewing me and checking over my background said that I had all the making to be a great officer and she could see it in me already.  So I guess that's good news.  I don't know how many of you will be called in order to check up on my background but just try to be nice to these people...I want to work with them and have them pay me 80K a year tops.  Thanks again.

Your buddy,

I want to thank all of you who have prayed and been praying for me.

I just got the call today that I passed my oral board and now it's only one more step, physical/stress test, so if I may be so bold as to ask you to keep praying for me.

Thank you so much, again.

Your friend,

Well gentlemen...tomm. is my last test for Columbus, OH.  If you haven't prayed for me yet this is definitely the time to do so.  I really want this job because I think it is perfect for me.  I will let God do His Will and I will follow...your prayers are appreciative and helpful.

Thanks.

Good thing I read that AFTER I came back Spanky.

Everything went well...hopefully nothing comes back in my physical make up or psychological.  I have an issue that I need to work out but I'm so bloody tired right now I'm working it out tomm.

The thing I was most scared of, the stress test, was not as bad as I thought it was.

I truly and deeply want to thank each and every one of you gentlemen who prayed for me.  This is why I have great friends like you that I still keep in contact.  Again, please except my sincerest thanks and love from a humble admirer of you all.

I'm going to bed!

Well I need to go back to have my eyes checked...they were pretty bad...however I think it was because it was so early in the morning or something.  So I'm on hold right now and if worse comes to worse I will have to get lasic surgery and go to the academy in July.

So, I'm sorry to ask, but keep those prayers up.

We had a nasty explosion at work today, so I'd also like to ask for prayers.  A gentleman by the name of Robert suffered very bad burns and is being airlifted to Bronson right now.

Well I got moved in down here and got my dsl modem working so I figured I would fire up the old pc.  First time I have ever seen sparks shoot out the back of a computer.  I know for a fact that the power supply is toast but not sure on anything else, pray for mojo(my computer is named mojo...)!  I ordered a new power supply which should get here wednesday/thursday.

On a side note, I hope Robert is doing well.

Well guys...I got some bad news in the mail today.  I didn't end up getting into Columbus, OH.  I thank you all for praying and keeping up with me on this ordeal.  However, now, I feel like a lot of my hope is gone.  Since I was banking on that job for this round, I missed out on a lot of opportunities to get into other places.  I'm thinking of getting some sort of factory job or something and just shelving my dreams for now.  I just don't know what to do right now...so pray please.  I'm sorry I let you all down, you're not the only ones...trust me.

Don't be too harsh on yourself, Stewie.  When I was looking for work last spring, I had more than my fair share of letdowns.  I had a couple of leads I was really interested in and had two or three near-perfect interviews for, but still didn't get the offer.

God will put you where He wants you when He is ready.  Don't give up!

Yeah pat, don't be so hard on yourself.  Confidence and attitude goes a very long way in an interview.

If it makes you feel better, I had a total of 18 in person interviews, 63 phone interviews, and God knows how many email replies all from emailing/mailing my resume out 350+ times.  The things you can learn from cleaning out your old hard drive...

And in all of those interviews there were only 2-3 jobs which I would have really wanted.  But if you pay me I will do anything (see penguin).

But in the end the company I work for now saw my resume on monster and just decided to give me a call out of all the other people on there.  So don't quit, unless it's smoking, then quit...and be addicted to the patches like me!

Hey guys and girls,

I really need some major prayer.  I'm going through a big thing right now and I just need...God.  I don't want to say too much more because I'll start rambling here.

So...thanks.

I have a prayer request of my own to add the the list.  Meredith and I will be flying to Buffalo, New York this evening to deal with a pressing family matter.  We'll be driving back on Sunday evening.

Please pray for our safe travel and for a quick resolution of the problems leading to our visit.  Thank you, and God bless!

My best friend Steve's buddy Kenny passed away unexpectedly yesterday morning. They have been close friends since middle school and Steve is having a very hard time with it.

Kenny was 26 years old and got married less than a year ago. His wife Kathrina is 22 and they have a 6 month old son named Kaden. He was an amazingly warm man who had a gift for walking up to complete strangers and making them feel like they had known him for years. He led many people towards Christ, including Steve.

Prayers would definitely be appreciated for his family and friends. Thanks you guys.

I just got a call from a interview for a job here in St. Joseph that's criminal justice related.  I know I keep on asking everyone for prayer for everything I do, but I'm sick of not working and I really would like this job.  So if you could pray for me, my interview is next Thurs.

Thanks,

Mere and I have a prayer request of our own that we'd like to throw out there.  Since we'll be living in TR for at least a couple more years, we've decided to buy a house and start building some equity.  This will help us buy a much nicer house when we start looking for our "career" jobs in a couple years.

We've found one particular house that we are very fond of.  It is listed at an incredibly low price, and we can easily do all the work to it that needs to be done without enslaving ourselves to the house.  That will help us build equity and make the house "our own."

The house is a bank foreclosure and they're in a hurry to get it off their hands.  It originally hit the market at $90,000 and has fallen all the way to $59,900.  We're going to offer $55,000 and ask the seller to help us with the closing costs.  That will help us put more money on the down payment, lowering our monthly payment and building instant equity.

If at all possible, please pray that the house won't sell out from under us and that the seller will accept our bid and help with closing costs.  I can't tell you how much Meredith and I appreciate your prayers!

-b0b

For what it's worth, I now have 4,000' of Category 5e cable and 125 RJ45 jacks ready to be run in whichever house we get.  That, combined with two Cisco enterprise-class wireless access points, should pretty much cover my networking needs!

LAN party, anyone?   Smiley

Wouldn't you want to wait until you're set up in a more permanent home?  Running that much cable and in a few years tearing it up almost seems like too much work.

If I were to buy a house and some high end CAT5 was laid out in every room...I wouldn't consider that a "problem".

The cabling will be run through the walls.  The only thing a prospective buyer will see are the extra outlets in the wall.  They're very unobtrusive and probably wouldn't get much attention.

Update!

Meredith and I submitted our bid this morning.  Apparently, someone else also made a bid today.  Since both went in at the same time, the bank will probably reject both of them and ask us to submit our "best offer."

Hopefully, the other bidder submitted a ridiculously low offer, so our offer will be accepted outright.

Please pray for God's intervention in this matter, we really need it!

Updated update!

We still don't know if we have the house yet or not.  We had to make two counter-offers yesterday, but they're still pretty reasonably priced.  We will probably find out sometime today if we won the bidding process or not.

Please continue to pray for us.  We're really on edge waiting to hear back from our the seller's realtor!

Update of Updated Update:

I just got a call from our broker.  Both bids were approved by whoever is responsible for such things at the selling bank.  They've now been passed up to bank management for approval.  According to the bank's listing agent, our bid appears to be in "first place."

Thank you so much for your prayers.  If this goes through, I'm buying Hot n' Now for all of you!

Ok ladies and gentlemen...today is my job interview for CPS in St. Joseph.  If I get this job I will call everyone of you.

I really want, and now need, a job where I can be a great service to people I want to help.

So if you could pray for me throughout the day, especially around 2:30 and if you want specific things to pray for...ask that they be smitten by me, think I'm the best qualified, and not turned off by any of my drawbacks.

I really do appreciate everyone who have prayed and prayed for me each time I do one of these interviews.  I hope to let no one down.

You've got it, Stewie!  If you get a job in St. Joseph, that would absolutely rock.  You'd still be close by and could come to all the LAN parties, unlike that jerk Craig!

Another high note is that you'd get to shoot people at least twice a day.  Oh, wait, that's Benton Harbor I'm thinking of, not St. Joseph...

On a side note, Meredith and I are still in a "holding pattern" with regard to the house.  Apparently, the bank that owns the house could take up to a week to make a decision on our bid.  I guess we're still in "first place", but it isn't a guarantee until they actually accept the bid.

Please keep praying for us, we're incredibly nervous about all of this!

It looks like we got the house!  I won't start the victory celebration until the keys are in our hands, but the realtor called today and said the bank accepted our bid.

We have to sit down with the realtor tonight to approve the final bid, then we'll be on our way!

Thank you guys so much for your prayers.  I can't tell you how excited Meredith and I are about this.  God is good!

That is so awesome, bob!  You will definitely be in my prayers.

If I can be so selfish as to say...everyone, the interview, I think, went well and I just ask that you pray for me whenever you think about me...and if you don't think about me often...just say one for me.

Ok folks here I am once again asking for prayer for a job.

Tomorrow I have an interview around 11 for a great paying security job in Mattahwan.  This interview is pretty much the last step that I have to worry about.  I have a friend who works there who's been putting in a good word for me and putting his neck out too.

So if you could pray that I get this job I will take you all out for really cheap Hot N' Now if I get it.  In all seriousness, please pray and pray hard.

Thank you,
Your friend - Patrick

I want to thank everyone for praying for me and encouraging me.  I just ask that you keep me in your little prayers for me getting the job.  I should be hearing back from them soon.

Thanks again,

"Let's start with French Stuart, who's grinning like an idiot -- you look pretty sure of yourself -- think you've got the right answer. Well, all you had to do was write down a number, and you wrote... Threeve. A combination of three and five. Simply stunning. And you wagered... Texas, with a dollar sign in front of it.

So I got a call today and they want me to come in for a second interview.  I have a buddy who works there right now and he says they want to hire me but I must first meet with the guy's big boss just to get a feel for me, before the guy who I interviewed with before, and who is really in charge of the hiring, gives me the OK.  So I think tomorrow I might have a job by the end of the 2nd "interview". 

So, please for me around 2 PM!

Thanks!

Well folks with God's help and your prayers and a bunch of other people pulling from me...later today I will be hearing that I am being hired.

I really want to thank all of you for supporting me for what seems to me as a very long time.  This is a good stepping stone for me and later I do hope to do some real police work.  As of right now I plan on getting experience under my belt and build up a little work ethic.

Thank you so much again.  You're the best friends a guy could ever ask for and be blessed by God to have.

Much love,
Patrick

Well ladies and gentlemen,

Today is my first official day of work.  Although technically, Wed, Thur, Fri are really orientation days...I still get paid nonetheless.  I'd like to thank not only God who is really The Only One who made it possible...but I'd like to thank you, my friends, for sticking it out with me these last two years.  I am very grateful that whenever I asked for prayer, you were right there ready, willing, able, and encouraging.  This is what the Body Of Christ is suppose to be and even though we might not get to see each other every day...I am honored that we've remained close these past 6 +/- after high school.  I just want each and everyone on here to know, that you can really touch a guy's heart with your love and all "Wes' mom" jokes aside...it's good to know that I can count on some awesome people to be there for me through thick and thin.  There's nothing I can possibly do, to repay you all...so don't be afraid to call on me when any one of you needs help.  That's what friends and Christians do for each other...and we seem to go above and beyond that.

Thank you so much again...from my entire heart,

Your X - Patrick

Well I finished my first full real week of work the other day.  So far, I've had to rub shoulders with sponsors (this time it was bankers...even they can be not so smart...did you know?) and then I had to work employee entrance monitor and shipping and receiving and new hires/interviews.  I've been told I picked up pretty quick on it so far.  The hardest part of the job so far, other than knowing who to call when the plan deviates...is staving off the boredom, I think I'm going to finish a few books in my time.

Next week I'm working Gate 1 which is kinda the Command And Control of the security force.  Here I'll be greeting sponsors (people who come in to pay us to do their tests...that means I get to play extra nice or it's curtains for me), be in charge of our emergency dispatch, and a few other important things here and there.  Basically, once I learn this post, the other two I have yet to learn won't be too bad.

Right now we work 12 hour shifts but that will change in a few weeks when it'll be a rotating 8 hour shift but I think I'll be mostly working 3rd shift for now...seeing as no one really likes that one.  I'll need to find an AM radio somewhere to listen to my favorite AM late night radio show...and hopefully be able to pick it up.

Other than that, there's not much new to tell.  I've met some cool people, some really good looking women, and I'm making some great money for the easiest job at the company.

Ooo so far I've seen one monkey...but so far I've not had to deal with anything causing the zombiefication of the company personnel.

Coast To Coast AM with George Noory (for the most part)...it's awesome.

2nd largest radio audience...and was there before Space Ghost.

Yeah, I bet he's "retired."  I'm guessing the NSA "retired" him with a bullet to the brain, and his look-alike genetic clone only does occasional shows to lower his chances of being detected by the Coast to Coast audience.

Hey guys,

I've got a really important prayer request tonight.  My mother has been in hospitalized since Friday evening, and the situation looks pretty bleak.  She fell into a coma Friday night while home alone, and hasn't responded since.  Preliminary tests show the presence of meningitis, but a conclusive result hasn't yet been determined.

I've been researching the condition over the past couple of days, and it appears that it has a high rate of mortality amongst even healthy patients.  My mother, unfortunately, is anything but healthy.

Please, pray for her health, and that of my stepfather who has been by her side nearly 24/7.  I can't imagine life without her.

Just to heap on the depression, I've got another major prayer request for you guys.  I just found out that my mother's brother and closest friend, Jim Delbridge, was killed last night in a motorcycle accident.

We had been trying to get in touch with him all last night to let him know about Mom, and found out at Midnight that he'd been in an accident.

My Uncle Jim was an incredible guy.  He was the patriarch of the family and had an absolutely magnetic personality.

Thank you for your prayers, and God bless.


-James

I'm very sorry to hear about that.  Few things in life suck more than losing your job.  I'll keep praying for you!

I most strenuously recommend http://www.USAJobs.gov.  The site lists both security and law enforcement positions, as well as every other profession under the sun. 

If I can be of any assistance, please don't hesitate to call.  I can give you a few pointers on searching for .gov jobs if you're interested!

Well I got the job as long as I can pass the background and drug test and the like...all the usual stuff.  It's not as much as I'm making but it's a job and it's possible to advance...unlike the last place I was at.

Thank you for all your prayers!

I'd like to submit a prayer request.

I've recently been looking into getting a job in the field of private investigation as a second job (second for right now...with possibility for full time gig).  I've recently been contacted by a company that is fairly new.  So new in fact that I wouldn't make a standard salary and I would have to find my own client base.  That would mean after working an 8 hour 3rd shift, I would sacrifice some sleep and energy to this job.  I've been offered to come in and meet with the head of the company but he said I could mull it around for a bit before even meeting with him.  I, of course, jumped at the chance to bring it to God and I would just ask that you ask God that if this is something He wants me to put my time and energy into, to let me know...one way or the other.  I'm definitely on the fence as of right now and I know this is a perfect situation for God to work in my life.

Thanks,

X

When I worked at the WMU Police Department I would rarely talk on the phone with a local PI. I could probably contact my old boss and ask him who that was if you're interested in contacting him. I still speak with my old boss sometimes so it's not awkward or anything. Let me know.

So I got interviewed with Radisson security in a phone interview today.  I should get a call back by at least next Tuesday.  If I could be so bold and so humbled to ask for your prayers in letting God be sovereign in my life if this is what He wants me to do and in all the details may they be resolved.

Thank you my brothers,

Is Radisson Security associated with the hotel chain?

Technically it would be through Greenleaf Trust but it would be security at the Radisson.

I know the security manager at the Radisson here in Kalamazoo. I put in a recommendation for you.

I never heard back from my other contact about the PI job. Sorry, the contact is Islamic so maybe prayers don't work on him. Haha

Dang, Stick.  I should just go to you for jobs.

I honestly really appreciate it.  Right now I'm waiting for the HR contact lady to get back in touch with me.  I'm not in too big of rush, but I would rather find out one way or another so I can decide what to do next.

Thanks again,

So I had my interview today for the Radisson.  I gave myself a B- on the whole deal, of course I hate interviews. 

I was told they were creating a pool and there were no open positions and I wasn't given any indication if I was to be even in that pool.

I go to sleep and wake up a couple hours later to my phone ringing and the Security manager offering to get me into orientation/training to at least start part time!  Heck ya!

Thanks to all of you who helped and prayed.  This was definitely God's doing and not my crappy actions.  Thanks again!

Hey guys, you all know I'm not exactly the praying sort most of the time, but my Grandma is so I thought I'd ask.

My Grandma had a massive stroke earlier this evening, and she probably won't make it through the night.  She had a lot of problems and was in a lot of pain, so if you could keep her in your thoughts or prayers tonight I'd appreciate it.

No problem, Wes.  We've got God's Ear and if your Grandma does too, God's got her hands.

And yes, anything at all...we've got it.

My Grandmas heart stopped around 10am this morning.  She had asked not to be revived.  Thank you for the thoughts and prayers guys.

I wasn't sure where else to put this, so I thought I'd throw it here.  An acquaintance passed this along to me:

Quote:
A classmate of ours lost her courageous battle to cancer. Lisa Holderman passed away October 2 at her home. Lisa leaves behinds her four children; Lucas, Lance, Lonnie, and Jasalin Holderman. The family is receiving friends from 6:00 to 8:00 PM on Thursday, October 6 at Hohner Funeral home. Memorial services are scheduled for Friday, October 8 at 11:00 at Hohner Funeral home.

We will be sending flowers on behalf of the Class of 2002 and Jessica Romig, Suzy Sampson, and Briana Kleidon are working on a plan for those that would like to donate towards a memorial contribution for her children. This will most likely be communicated through Facebook.

Please keep Lisa's family in your prayers.

Danielle Rohrer


Sadly, I can't recall Lisa.  I wonder if Holderman is her married name?

I remember her name, that is sadly all I can remember.  Sorry to hear of her passing none the less.  Thanks Bob.

Thanks for that, Stewie.  I can't say I knew her well, but that picture definitely jogged the memory.

My mom is in the hospital with severe chest pain and tightness.  The doctors don't believe it is or was a heart attack at this time, but they don't know what it is either.

Please keep her in your thoughts, prayers, meditations or whatever you choose to do.

I have an interview with KDPS tomorrow for a part time job as a dispatcher, this would be a great foothold into the police world and interviews always make me the most nervous.

I would appreciate any prayers you could throw my way.  Thanks.

I worked closely with a few guys at KDPS several years ago. The ticketing software they use is the one we developed here in Kalamazoo, called eTicket. I'm not with them any longer but the software is booming in law enforcement. While I was there we were landing some huge departments. Miami Dade being the largest in the country. If you've gotten a ticket from any MSP officers or any department in southern Michigan, the ticket you got was created by yours truely. I even got a ticket from it! Sucks when your own software stabs you in the back. Anyway, tangent aside, maybe this information will be of some help to you.

Good luck with the interview! My experience with law enforcement is that some of those guys are pretty laid back and curse up a storm. The dispatchers... speak code over the radio. You probably already know but, they spend most of their time checking to make sure the officers are ok. If the officer doesn't respond, something is wrong. They stay very cool over the radio as well. You would be a great fit, IMO.

I thought it went pretty well today.  I got a few INTENTIONAL laughs so I consider that a good sign as well.

Thanks, my friends, for your prayers.
