Last year (2016) was a tough year for our family. My husband was diagnosed with cancer and, although he is recovering well and the prognosis is good, it's left our 12-year-old with significant anxiety. This past weekend we lost a close family friend to cancer. It all happened very quickly after she'd been told she was cancer-free, and my son has been very emotionally affected by it. In the midst of all the emotions he was experiencing though, his first response was to contact his youth leaders and ask for their prayer support. Thank God for our kids program - these leaders have journeyed with him through the rough times and the 'church is boring' pre-teenage moments, and encouraged him to connect and serve. His situation hasn't changed yet, he is still anxious and there will still be rough times ahead. But I'm so grateful that his first response was to reach out for prayer, and to reach out to his church family.
