Finally...New Update!

Hey PB supporters:

If you're not one of the lucky folks Paul has been phoning regularly to share a few of the many new jokes he has learned, you've probably been wondering what he's been up to lately. Paul has been working on learning Braille with the Commission for the Blind. He's mastered the alphabet, numbers and some short words. About a month ago, he began working with a trainer at the gym three days a week.

Paul and his amazing,unwavering childhood friend, Ryan Horner, flew out to Washington state this week to visit friends and attend a wedding. This is the first time Paul has traveled since he came home from Australia a year ago. He had a few trips planned that he cancelled, so this is a considerable feat and we are very excited for him!

Again, we want to thank you all for your generous donations which have helped us pay Paul's hospital and rehabilitation bills from Australia and here in the U.S. We continue to feel blessed and supported by all of your thoughts, prayers and actions. We also want to thank Paul's friends who continue to stay in touch with him regularly. We feel this is essential for his well-being and recovery.

Paul is looking forward to sharing his West Coast stories on the blog upon his return.

Much love,

The Baileys

  1. Thank you for the update! When I started reading it I had the sense that the Lord is using Paul in a unique way. He will be a great encouragement to many others in trying circumstances. Praying for joy as Paul learns a new language skill and becomes more mobile. Blessings to you all!
