Wilma's Report

I returned from Lubbock last evening late and wanted to give a good report.

The entire Thompson family is so overwhelmed with the love, support and especially the prayers that they are receiving. The hospital waiting room is covered up with food, bushel baskets of food, fruit baskets, cookie bouquets, boxes of home made cookies...(and I certainly enjoyed some of it.) There are cowboys everywhere and friends who have flown in from all over the state. They even have friends who work at the hospital who are always coming by to answer questions. The hospital staff has been amazing. They even provided formula and diapers for little Trevor. Donald Edrington who lives in the Metroplex had his computer and we all passed it around reading the many prayers and comments being sent up to God, from this site.

Cindy, Larry, Tonya and Ronda were so blessed to know how people are praying for them. They are all holding strong between their tears. Ps. 126: 5-6 "Those who sow in tears will reap with songs of joy. He who goes out weeping, carrying seed to sow, will return with songs of joy, carrying sheaves with him." I believe we will see a great harvest from our tears.

TYLER: Tyler's surgery on his leg went well and the doctors were pleased. They thought with a little rehab his leg will be fine.

TREY: Trey is scheduled to have the surgery on his face this morning and is probably in surgery now. He had a slight temperature when I left last night. His head is very swollen but I am told that is normal for a head injury.

Kelly Thompson, Todd's wife has the 6 girls at her home in Munday and they are in school. With their 4 that makes 10 so they are having a good time. The cousins love to be together so that is great. Tessa Kizer Guerrero and I brought Trevor home with us to Munday for a couple of days. He has been so good. I never saw him cry all day. He slept most of the way home.
The counter on the website rolled over and this morning it had started at 1 but I see it's fixed now. There were over 5000 hits last night. Keep the prayers going because God hears the cries of His People.

There have been 2 mobile homes and a travel trailer made available for them to stay in long term. They plan to park the travel trailer at the hospital so they can rest between visitations. Everyone has been wonderful to try and share the burden the Thompson's are enduring. God is good and His people are sharing His love from across the U.S. Cindy said, "How can we ever thank everybody?" And I had to laugh.....I said "Cindy you are just reaping from all the seeds you have planted over the years!" She is always doing for everyone so now she is the recipient of her labors.

The Thompsons want to thank everyone and say they love you and keep praying. -wilma

It is so wonderful to see how God's children pull together in this time of need. It makes me proud too to see how the citizens of the town I was raised in can help one another. Thanks to all who contribute to this awesome site, also. God Bless! Shonda

We are from Missouri City, TX and are close friends of Mimi and Jerry Cook, Cori Cororan and Todd and Kelly Thompson. Our hearts and prayers go out to Trey and Tyler and their families at this critical time. The blog has helped those around Texas feel as though we are staying in touch as we pray steadfastly and continually. God is so gracious and faithful to His followers. May His peace be on all those who wait and all those who care for the boys at this time.

" And you can rejoice in the solid promise of our Lord that he will never leave you." Matt. 28:20.

All our love,
