Praise GOD !

In October we reported on a story about a 15-year-old orphan who had touched millions of hearts with his plea for a family to adopt. He voiced his request publicly inside the St. Mark Missionary Baptist Church in St. Petersburg, Florida. Davion Only may be getting his wish come true!

Davion, who has spent his life in various orphan homes will be spending Christmas with a prospective adoptive family. The possible adoptive couple will reportedly be taking Only away during the holiday for his first vacation. Only’s requirements were simple, “I’ll take anyone,” he said. “Old or young, dad or mom, black, white, purple. I don’t care. And I would be really appreciative. The best I could be.”

Davion was born while his mother was in jail and has never had a permanent home or family according to the Tampa Bay Times, which first reported about the teen’s plight. Last summer he tried to find his biological mother, but only found her obituary. She had died a few weeks earlier.

Only also appealed to Florida Governor Rick Scott in November to speak on behalf of all homeless Florida teenagers seeking a family. “Even though I’m going through an adoption process right now at the moment, I still hope that other kids in foster care get the benefit that I’m going to have to be adopted and to have somewhere to call home and to have a bed to call theirs,” he told the governor and his cabinet.

There are 610,042 people who are homeless in the U.S. Some 23 percent, or 138,149 are children according to the government. The states with the highest rates of homeless children are California, Florida and Texas.

We express our appreciation to the couple who appear to intend to adopt Davion. We are so very thankful Davion appears to have found his home he has so desired but we continue prayers for all those who are still in search for a home of their own as well.

After serving in the United States Navy for 22 years I retired from the service late in 1991. Having always loved the southwest, shortly after retiring, I moved to the Albuquerque area where I have resided since. Initially I worked as a contractor for approximately 6 years doing cable construction work. That becoming a little dangerous, at an elevated age, I moved into the retail store management environment managing convenience stores for roughly 16 years. With several disabilities, I am now fully retired and am getting more involved with helping Pastor Dewey & Pastor Paul with their operations at FGGAM which pleases my heart greatly as it truly is - "For God's Glory Alone". I met my precious wife Sandy here in Albuquerque and we have been extremely happily married for 18 years and I am the very proud father to Sandy's wonderful children, Tiana, our daughter, Ryan & Ross, our two sons, and proud grandparents to 5 wonderful grandchildren. We attend Christ Full Deliverance Ministries in Rio Rancho which is lead by Pastor's Marty & Paulette Cooper along with Elder Mable Lopez as regular members. Most of my time is now spent split between my family, my church & helping the Pastors by writing here on the FGGAM website and doing everything I can to support this fantastic ministry in the service of our Lord. Praise to GOD & GOD Bless to ALL! UPDATED 2021: Rick and Sandy moved to Florida a few years ago. We adore them and we pray for Rick as he misses Sandy so very, very much!
