Jonathan's Army already 442 strong!!!!

     Since we posted the blog about the wristbands for "Jonathan's Army" about a week ago, we have had requests so far for 442 wristbands!!!!!  That is a testament to Jonathan and the love that all of you have for him.  I know he has been touched by this overwhelming response!  I have attached a photo of a group of his soldiers from Gatesville, TX.  The class of 2001 who had their reunion on Saturday asked me to send wristbands to them to show their support and love of Jonathan!  Sky Gerdel distributed almost 115 wristbands there!!!  All of you are awesome! But, we have also had lots of requests of 1 or 2 all over the country!   Jonathan, you now have soldiers in 8 states, 27 cities and 2 countries!!! 

The response has been so overwhelming that I am almost out of wristbands! I will order more today.  Most of you have asked about contributing to the wristbands or to postage. I have refused any monetary contributions because I wanted to do this for Jonathan so he would know how widespread his army is.   I jokingly told Barrett that if the army got to over 500 then I might have to seek help or take out a loan from the bank!!!  He told me that he thought that it was a distinct possibility that it would grow to over 500!  He was right!  I didn't anticipate going through these first 500 so quickly!  You certainly don't have to, but if you would like to contribute to the Reorder of more wristbands you can send it to me and any money that is left over I will donate to Jonathan's account in Gatesville under donations from Jonathan's Army.  Anyone that has placed an order up to now though, I have mailed all of those out.  There was a problem with the post office misquoting the price to mail the envelopes because of the thickness of the envelope so I am hoping that all of them get to you.  If for some reason you don't get yours this week, write to me and I will resend them. I apologize in advance if it gets to you and says additional postage due. 
Don't forget to send photos of you in your wristbands when you get them so we can post them for Jonathan to see!  Winston and I have been so touched by the outpouring of love and prayers for Jonathan and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.  I can only imagine it must be some comfort to Jonathan to know he has so many people joining him in prayer in his battle. Together We Will Win!!!!

All my love,
Soldier in Jonathan's "Army"
