Please Pray for my Wife

I don't normally post these kinds of personal things on this particular blog, but this is way too important to me to not post it here tonight. My wife needs a lot of prayer right now.  She is just finishing up her teaching year in the public school before we start homeschooling our 9th grade son this fall (he just finished 8th grade today).  She still has two more days of teacher work days to go.

These last couple of weeks have been extremely hard on her, because she had to deal with a situation with one of her co-workers.  Unfortunately, this co-worker has retaliated against her, and has filed some very serious allegations against Christy with their school and district administration.  Most of the charges are outright lies, and some are misrepresentations of actual events.  None of the charges are warranted.  However, it has caused deep hurt for my wife as she has had to face these allegations.

Tomorrow, she is to meet with her principal, and two other administrators in response to all of this.  We have no idea how they will handle these allegations, or if there will be any repercussions from them.

Please pray for 1) truth to be revealed, 2) for Christy to remain peaceful and calm in the face of false allegations, and 3) for God to be glorified.  Some of these allegations even revolve around Christy's expression of her faith in front of her co-workers, so there is an actual element of spiritual persecution to all of this (i.e., suffering for her faith in Christ).

I'm very proud of my wife for her testimony and faith, and it hurts me deeply to see her hurting like this.  Please pray for her, and maybe drop a note on her blog to let her know you are praying.  I (or she) will try to post an update soon to let you know how this all turns out.

Thank you very much.

You and your wife are certainly in our prayers, brother. If there is anything at all that we can do, please don't hesitate to let us know.

OF COURSE I will add her to my prayers, and you as well!
