Upon arrival to the church building this past Sunday night, Will was asked to lead the youth prayer since the little boy that was scheduled didn't feel comfortable doing it. Without hesitation, he said he would!
So, he got up in front of the entire congregation and led prayer! I could not have been more proud of him!!!! What a brave little man!
The interesting twist to this story is that Jeff had just cut the boys' hair that afternoon. Will lead prayer sportin' a mohawk!
LOL! I was a little worried about what everyone might say, but so far I've heard nothing negative. There have been some questioning looks, but nothing awful, thankfully.
Will loves the mohawk! I don't know how long he'll keep it, but for now it's just fun!
Not only am I proud of Will for doing such an outstanding job on a spur-of-the-moment prayer request, but I'm proud of the people I worship with - they can obviously look beyond the outward appearance and be accepting of the sweet spirit inside.
It's funny how a change of appearance can alter perceptions sometimes, though, ya know?
