So glad to hear you're back to Sweet Home

Christian, We've been monitoring your progress from Hoover and after to talking with your dad at the golf event, it comes as a tremendous and pleasant surprise to know that you're home. Know that you've got a lot of caring people in your court. God bless you and your family. Still a tough journey ahead-you can handle it with your positive attitude.

I do not know how, but I believe God is going to use this horrible thing that happened to you to allow you to help others. I know you have a long way to go.

Prayer Warriors have helped you get this far and will keep your healing process easier for you in the years to come.Years ago I took care of foster children who were badly burnt and know all that is involved in the healing and know it isn't easy and is very painful.I love in Green Valley also in Hoover and don't know your family but I felt like you were family having grand children close to your age.You will get folk looking at your scars but just smile that lovely smile and don't let them bother you.God is So Good.

Welcome Home and Enjoy that Milos.I hope to meet you some day soon.
Just remember God is Good All The Time.

Praise Be To God!

Rosalyn taught you in K-5 and has always loved you! She and I have diligently prayed for you daily. (Sometimes several times a day.) When one sincerely goes before the Lord and begs Him to heal a person,,one begins to love that person! Christian, I have prayed for you so often until my thoughts are constantly with you. Praying for you now is 'second nature' to me now. We have recruited all the prayer warriors that we know to pray for you. Rosalyn and I dearly love you and please know that we will continue to pray for you until,you are completely well. I am sure we will now ALWAYS pray for you! God Bless you and keep you dear one! I hope to someday meet you😎 😇👮🤓🙏👍👶👶👶👴🐱😈🐝🦄🐔

Onward Christian Soldier!

So incredibly touched by you and your experience. I can relate in a small level and have had your back in prayer daily. Multiple times a day. Your testimony is one of true faith, perseverence and a strong conviction in Christ.
