Kasey pretty much blew high school. He was on our ministry team and he was a walking miracle. The pain of his childhood set him up to make some lousy choices, like drugs for example. He quit high school. He was headed for a wasted life or an early death until he met Jesus at the age of 19. He left all the junk of his past behind him and started a passionate study of God's Word, like memorizing hundreds of verses! Kasey wanted to get college training, but he knew that meant taking the GED test to get a Graduation Equivalency Diploma. He had pretty much failed math, he failed English and all the subjects he was about to be tested on. They were timed tests, something like 25-50 minutes. But at the beginning of each test, he bowed his head and prayed for about 10 minutes. The teacher administering the test walked up to him and said, "Excuse me, but I think you're going to need all the time. It's challenging to get it done with all the minutes you've got. You've got no time to pray." Kasey's answer? "There's no hope if I don't."
