Well, I wrote a post, and then promptly lost it, and typing on my phone is a bit of a painful process, so I’ll just sum it up and leave this link and two screen shots of Jerry’s Facebook post that tells the story better than I can:
#38 — I am SO thankful this little 6 yr old boy is safe and back at home. #39 — I’m thankful Jerry & Laine & Julianne got to have a part in the exciting story. #40 — I’m thankful for how God answered prayer and led them right to this 6 yr old “needle in the haystack” (acres and acres of bush were being searched and miles of back roads all around his home area). #41 — I’m thankful for my own little prayer that was answered, that God would stop the rain before to got to New Fish Creek. (It was raining so hard on my way home from work at 8:20 that I could hardly see where to turn off the road. Yet a few miles north of us, the rain did not start until they had found the boy and gotten him safely into a vehicle.
I can’t imagine what his family felt as they searched for him all day. #42 — I’m so glad he didn’t spend the night outside, because the story could have been much different. #43 — I’m thankful for safety for Jerry, Laine, & Julie as they searched in the dark in the bush with no gun!
