Wow, the generosity of family, friends and complete strangers is amazing; and we must add overwhelming. We wish we could somehow thank everyone who contributed personally, whether it was with monetary donation, or words of encouragement, prayers and kind thoughts. So we chose to use this platform to say we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

The comments and prayers were well received, and were what we turned to at the end of the day to give us strength and motivation to face the next day with optimism and gratitude while in Arkansas. They were empowering!

We do not know if it is proper to do this or not, but we thought it might be good to let you know how money has been and will be spent. Neither Dennis or I had any paid time off work available when this happened and incurred typical expenses of travel; hotel, food and gas. We replaced Joshua's glasses and covered two doctor appointments upon his return. We have not dispersed the rest of the money as we are waiting to see if Uncle Buck's, where Joshua works, is able to help with Mena, AR medical bills. (They have a fund that we think can help and Joshua has applied. It has taken a bit of time waiting on the bills.) Whatever remains after that will go to Polk County Emergency Management and Grant County Search and Rescue.

We are thrilled to let you know Joshua is back at work, loving God, plans on continuing to hike, doing really well. Praise God!

There are not enough words to describe the affects on us that we have experienced because of thoughtful community coming together for us; or words of deep gratitude that we feel as a result. "Us" and "we" are myself, Dennis, Joshua, Miranda and Sam. Again, we say thank you, thank you, thank you.

To be a witness to the many miracles that occurred during this time is amazing! We pray God receives all the glory and credit for bringing together and using so many to answer one prayer. Joshua is home, safe and healthy.
