Three weeks ago my older brother committed suicide. He was only 42 years old. He left behind a wife, 2 small children, 2 siblings a mother and numerous other grieving family and friends. We are desperately trying to come to grips with this heart breaking tragedy. I am left wondering if there is hope after something like this. If GOD can heal someone from even the most horrific tragedies. I don't know how to find peace or hope. I lean on our Lord Jesus to get me through because there is nothing else I know to do at this point. Thank you for your prayers.

I have requested prayer for my 32 year old son, Joshua G Wright. Sunday, August 15, I gave pictures to the gentleman in the prayer room after the 11 AM service. Joshua & his son, Damon Rohr, were baptized at Lake Elmo on 04/09/2005 to be members of Harvest Church. They attended church for a number of years. Josh and I were in Bible study when he met this black woman, Jewell Clem, from New Orleans, LA, at 24 Hr Fitness. She is a woman of extremely large fake breasts and wore very tight revealing clothes to the gym. Josh's brother was a trainer at 24 Hr Fitness and trained Jewell Clem. Josh began working out at 24 Hr. Fitness. They met. Jewell soon was in Josh's life full time. Josh kept her very private and a secret from the family. I found out later that her house was going in foreclosure. My son bought her house and helped her out. At that time, Josh worked FT and owned his own business, worked hard and was financially sound, was full of life, avid hunter, came to all family functions, loved to hike, fish, boat and camp with his family. He loved his family. He loved his only son, Damon Rohr, who is now 15 yrs old. Josh and I were very close and did a lot of things together. He was a loving son.
Slowly, over the past 2+ years, my son, Joshua, began to withdrawal from his family, job, and life. He stated, one day, that he married Jewel Clem. He stated that they had watched the movie .. the Divinci Code. She began teaching Josh about Prison Planet and Alex Jones. She obtained her information off the Internet. Josh began sharing these beliefs with me. I cautioned him about staying with God's Word and do only what is pleasing to God. My son changed drastically. He told me that he didn't trust anyone. He withdrew from everything. He turned off his phone, tore out his mailbox, had no more contact with family or friends.
Oct 2009, Damon, Josh's son, and I went to Josh's house. His front gate was padlocked. We crawled under the fence. His tall fence to his house was padlocked. We went around the side of the house. Josh came out on his deck. He focused on Damon and told Damon that he was not his blood, he was the devil, to burn the Bible because it was a piece of s**t, called Damon horrible names. Josh was raging and yelling using a lot of profanity. His blue eyes were black as coal. He then turned on me and screamed and told me that Jesus does not love me. We began to walk away and leave down his long driveway. He followed us and continued to scream at us using a lot of profanity. He kept telling me that Jesus didn't love me. I whirled around and told him Jesus does to love me and he couldn't state that to me because it was false. Josh turned around and walked back to his house. Before entering his home.. he turned.. and screamed... "You are going to hell with the name of Joshua across your chest." We left.
My 21 yr old daughter, JaDeen Wright, Damon (Josh's now 15 yr old son), & myself went to Josh's house yesterday, August 22, after church. We stopped and prayed before going there. Josh had more writing on his signs that he has posted on his fences. (I gave these to the man in the prayer room a couple Sundays ago). Damon jumped out of the car, crossed the padlocked gates, and went to his father's door. JaDeen and I stayed on the road and prayed. We heard talking. Damon was up there for a long time. JaDeen went up to the house to see her brother but came back in shock of what she saw and experienced. Josh had long hair, full beard, had lost weight, acted paranoid toward her, etc. Josh told Damon that Jan 2010...he quit paying on his house, taxes, shut off his electricity, etc. He stated that he received an eviction notice on his door which will go into effect in a couple weeks. Josh stated that God will protect him from losing his home. That he cut wood, lives off his garden, and rain water. Josh's yard was scattered with all his deer heads that he had had mounted since he began hunting. He stated that we cannot kill animals. JaDeen returned to the car because Damon asked her to leave. JaDeen and I waited on the road again and prayed. Finally, Damon came down the road with Josh following him. Josh crawled under the fence and began reading the signs (he had posted on his fences) to us. He stated that if we paid taxes that we were murderers. That God wants us all to live as he does with his black queen. He stated that we would all bow down someday to his black queen and himself because he is the king. That he lived 2000 years ago and has been reincarnated. JaDeen and I told Josh that God is a God of Love and doesn't expect us to live like he is. I asked Josh who his followers were. He stated that he has 144,000 followers. He stated that he was Jesus and that we needed to get off his property or he'd bring the wrath down on us. Jewell had walked down the driveway and stood at the gate. Josh turned toward her and stated "Meet the queen who you will all bow down to someday." This is when we noticed Josh's anger increasing and his profanity and screaming got worse. It was almost like she triggered him into going into a new phase of anger and rage. We left because he was becoming increasingly more violent and raging using a lot of profanity. He was getting in our faces and screaming at us.
Josh will be evicted within the next couple wks. Damon and his mother called the Sheriff's office to go up there and do a wellness check Sunday night, August 22. The Deputy went up but said there was nothing he could do. I called and spoke with Sargent O'Donald at the Sheriff's office as to what will happen when they go up to evict him out of his home. Sargent stated that they will first ask them to leave. I told the Sargent that my son will not leave. Sargent said they would then physically remove them. I told the Sargent that my son had a LOT of guns and would not allow them to remove him and Jewell. That he would fight with gun power because he thinks he is Jesus & God will save him & his home. The Sargent then told me that they would have no choice but to to shoot him. I pleaded with the Sargent to help me find any intervention possible before they attempt to evict him. He stated to go to District Court and see a Judge and try to get the Judge to order a 72 hour commitment on Josh. That the Sheriff's office would go and forcefully take him to the hospital for commitment to do a complete mental eval. Our family prays for Josh to go to jail or the hospital, at this point, to get him away from Jewell and out of the environment that he is in. We pray that Josh can still be saved an helped. I have been praying about whether to see the Judge or not. It could result in Josh's death if they try to force him to go and he brings out a gun. His eviction could result in my son's death.
I am pleading for help and advice. I want to do what is right according to God. I am a parent trying to run intervention in keeping her son from being killed. I don't know what to do. Please help. 248-3344 Bonita Raitt Burton
I have been busy trying to go back to school and working on getting my degree in Medical Coding and Billing. I have filled out all the paperwork required and passed the placement tests my only problem is that I got the financial news today and I did not qualify for the Pell Grant. I did qualiy for the subsidized stafford loan and the unsubsidized stafford loan. My grandma was hoping she would be able to help me but right now it doesn't look that way because she is trying not to use the financial aid because she doesn't want me to be in debt. Please pray that I can make her understand that the financial aid is there for this reason and that no one can expect to go to college with out some help.I really want to go and get my degree so I can work on getting a better job and more time for myself and family. Please pray that I can make this become a reality.
Please pray for my developing service group, and that we spread God's love for us the way He would want it to be spread. Pray that we reach the hearts of those involved and carry out God's will without hestitation. It is called I.M.P.A.C.T. (Innovative Minors Pursuing Active Change Together). Thanks
Thank you all for praying for our lil grand daughter Miranda Schaeffer~Her EEG results finally came back and were "Abnormal with signs of Seizure Disorder"~She now has another appt on Sept. 9th to meet with a neurologist so we may learn what course of preventative actions we must take from this point forward. Billings apparently only has 1 pediatric neurologist that is in town 2 time a week and has a waiting list of over 200 children already! This neurologist is covering a state region and is a very busy man. Our hope and prayer is that Miranda would be able to get in with this specialist real soon. If not, we may need to travel to Denver or Salt Lake in hopes of finding a Pediatric Neurologist~Thank you for your continued prayers~
I have been given a clear God Trail to a possible buyer for our house in Bozeman. -Wayne and I really want the house to sell and would like your prayers for that. Thank you
Praise!! Our twin boys were born Monday night, Tristen and Traden Beddes! They are in the NICU at Billings Clinic right now, they were a little early so they just need to grow some before going home. Please pray for continued good health, and that they grow big and strong. Pray that we get to take them home very soon, as we are anxious to have them at home. Pray that Mike and I continue to depend on the Lord and each other, and draw strength from the Lord as we face going back and forth to the NICU every three hours and the sleep deprivation that comes with that. Pray for Tyler, as he adjusts to having siblings after 8 years of being an only child. Thank you for praying!
I went to the dr on Thursday for my knee and they took xrays and didn't see anything out of the ordinary. I was given some antiinflanitory medicine and have been on it since Friday and it seems to be working. I took some sick time Fri and Sat from work so I could stay off my feet and let it heal. Praise God that the pain is finally going away and thank you all so much for your prayers.
Please pray for me as I study this week for the next several months of sermons and weekend content.
