This is a message in the K-1 about K-1 couples . I wanted to send out some words of encouragement today . This is a very long process for most of us . We need to stay strong and keep the faith . VSC OR CSC lets keep up our positive outlook and know that the time is coming for all of us . Do what ever you need to do during the day to keep your faith in the process . I know it can be very hard to see the ups and downs from the centers . I read about the length of times and the disappointments we face each day our NA02 does not come . It is a painful process and sometimes it can end relationships . I pray now today that everyone can keep up the faith remain strong and reach the goal in the journey ! At the end all of this will be very worth it and a nice story of courage and strength to tell for sure .

There are so many here who will help and they are a true blessing .

God Bless

This process has definitely tested our hearts, as we've broken up twice, but now that we have our interview next month we can see the light. I've learned a lot about making decisions together, how to lead in a relationship, having faith, patience, and more love than I thought possible! Just what I needed to be a better man! Everything happens for a reason, and it's according to God's plan.
