This is a letter to our friends –

My grand-son Brendan (17)

Our youngest and her family left California to buy wooded Montana anchorage. We miss having them close in Silicon Valley but rejoice that they have a new home and new employment.

Susan and Bryan (Martin) have done a great job as second-generation home schoolers. We are very proud of our grand-kids. Samantha is about to graduate from Westmont College. Brendan has just finished Highschool and has received his first invitation to college.

This kid is a goal setter. He aimed for and earned his Eagle scout rank. He earned his Black Belt. He set his goal for a career in Army special forces, followed by a career in Intelligence. He qualified for West Point and was runner-up for an appointment. He loves the Lord.

This month, at the peak of his teen career, Brendan received a gut-punch! Aggressive cancer was discovered. He is in a chemotherapy program. I am proud that he has a great attitude and is staying close to the Lord through all this.

The move to Montana interrupted health-care insurance and the new policy is not in place long enough to cover Brendan’s cancer. The medical expenses may bankrupt the family.

Fran and I are asking for prayer for a full recovery for this great young man. We are also asking for financial help for the Martin family. See gofundme account –


Or contact Susan & Bryan Martin, 1257 Smith Lake Road, Kalispell, MT 59901 (408) 375-9813 dancingmommy@comcast.net

Thanks in advance for your prayers and support.

Ben & Fran
