“Praying for Dad,” Friend, July 2007, inside front cover
My dad is a firefighter. Sometimes he has to go away for a long time. It seems like months, but it is really only two or three weeks. Once he had to go to Montana to fight a forest fire. I prayed every night that he would not get hurt, and my prayer was answered. My dad came home safe, but he had a beard!
