Yep, I met our dear Trudi, down by the toothbrush isle in Wal=Mart. She had her six wonderful children with her!

We will meet tomorrow, lord willing and get a bit of a plan as to how Lin and I can help. they can stay / live with us for a bit...

It is obvious that her children are exceptional....

having not worked for months we are short on cash, but they will be loved and kept safe if they need us.

it breaks my heart to see how many times men push away those who care.

Yes we are in the middle of no where. but this is where we are, and here is Trudi!

I love this place ( KickAS ) because of the wonderful people who love and support each other.

Lonnie, how fortuitous that you and Trudi are so close at this point, you can meet in Walmart! I'm so glad she and the kids have you and Lin right now. You are truly, something, my dear.

God works every where, even on the Wal-Mart tooth paste aisle.
What a blessing.

Thanks for sharing this message of grace today.

"Truly I tell you, whenever you did it to the least of these you did it to me"

God Bless you and your wife for helping a family in need.

Love to all of you!!

Oh my goodness! I am so sorry to hear that Trudi and her family are going through this...I did not know...but I am amazed and glad to read that you will provide help and support! That is truly walking the walk, isn't it, thank you for sharing this.

Oh my, I just saw Trudi's story! shocked I feel so bad for her and what trials she is going through.

Lon, I must say, you are back doing your kingdom work! Isn't it amazing that when one door closes, another one opens and it is usually never what we expected. You and Lin are saints. Sorry, couldn't find an angel emoticon but you have a big and generous heart that will be rewarded one day.

Bless you,

Lon, my friend, God Bless you 2 for being there for Trudi and her children. Valsmum summed it up very well.

I guess I will start hanging out on the toothpaste isle, and see if I can meet you Lon.

I hope things work out for Trudi, and her family.

Grand time with Lon n Lynn. The kids did not want to leave such a house of peace and wit. I think we surprised Lon more than he surprised us. That is the fun of dealing with pirates, I suppose! laugh2

you and the children are welcome any time...

for as long as you want.

If # 3 needs our environment; she should stay!!!

But you did not eat enough!!!!!
Keep me posted as to how I / we can help....

Lots of love

But, dear friend, YOU need to update your picture!! I didn't recognize you that day in Walmart!! crazy

Hey Lon,

Good to hear bumped into another Kicker, I have met many through the years. Maybe one day will meet another again on my travels.

Best wishes for the both of you, you each deserve it (Lon and Trudi).

are you saying that the picture Dakota took 15 years ago is old? really.... I don't know how to post an update picture.. I am too old....

Sometimes I look in the mirror and don't recognize me.....

You are a great friend, wonderful mom ..... I am praying for you and your precious family.....

Ruthie is on my heart, if she needs a shelter.... this is a good place to start.....
Posted By: Lon Re: I met withTrudi - 02/05/13 06:54 PM

I am afraid, there is not so much I can do to help our Trudi.

She will know more in a few weeks.

But she can, THE KIDS CAN, stay here any time.

How are things with you?
