Tuesday, September 9, 2014: I had called my niece, Amy Prokopt, (my niece) to talk to her about her son Nicholas. She was driving to Monroe to spend the day and would have time to have lunch with me. We met at the Subway to talk about her son, Nicholas, going on a mission trip with us in January to Honduras. She had called my son David, earlier today to talk to him about Nicholas going into the ministry and how to break into this. As she and I talked, the Holy Spirit was present. Nicholas had enrolled at South Western, but something had happened and he quit and came home depressed. Nicholas was born out of wedlock and has recently tried to contact his biological father, but his father did not want to speak to him or see him. This has wounded his spirit and he said, "How can anyone love or care for me if my biological father acts this way." As Amy told me this story, she and I both were in tears of compassion for her son. There's something in me that wants to reach out and be a father figure to him. In a couple of weeks, he will be coming over to spend the day with me. My plans are to love on him, pray for him and introduce him to the men in the fellowship.
