Awesome Prayers for Trey!

I believe in the power of prayer!

I also believe in the power of good people; and you my friends, are good people.

A few days ago, I posted Pray for Trey –  https://dwelchel.wordpress.com/2013/05/06/pray-for-trey/  – and the response was phenomenal! So many people offering encouragement and prayers for a little boy they don’t even know!

It made my heart swell and I remembered how you each offered the same support and encouragement for my own granddaughter Isabelle whom I wrote about a couple of times –  https://dwelchel.wordpress.com/2013/02/27/heartfelt-art/

Okay, it was more than just a couple!

Anyway, I wanted to let you know that your words and prayers have not gone unanswered! The bone marrow registry drive that I wrote about for Trey Freeman was a HUGE success!  His earthly father posted on FB that the Oklahoma Blood Institute actually ran out of test kits! That is right, they brought all they had (even the ones in reserve), which came to over 500!

 His daddy said, "I think if Trey had his choice, he might want a fireman to be his match! " :-)

500 new people are now on the national bone marrow registry and the chances of finding a match for little Trey is looking very good. They had so many, the had to turn people away!

So many people came out to help Trey!

Here is what daddy Jeremy said in response: “Thanks so much to everyone who made this night such a huge success! Words cannot even express our gratitude! I cannot wait to see who the Lord provides as Trey’s match. Our God is in control!”

A flyer was handed out at the registry event suggesting ways to help Trey; if any of you would like to know more, please read this flyer – http://storage.cloversites.com/firstbaptistchurchnewcastle/documents/Trey_flyer.pdf  –  You can also keep up with Trey at http://www.prey4trey.com

Registry your DNA with the Bone Marrow Registry is just a simple mouth swab away! You must be in good health and between the ages of 18-44.
