Hi everyone,
Just a note to wish everyone a safe and happy memorial day. A good time to reflect on all of the sacrifices made for the freedom that we hold so dear.
I am glad to hear that Corrine and Joe's son, Isaiah is doing well. I'm a firm believer in miracles, that has to be one. I'm sure that God has great plans for him.
I will be playing at my church's bazaar again this year with Joe and Mary Lych, and Paul Reinert. Just More of Us will be playing on Friday, July 29th at Our Lady of Angels Church in Endwell, NY from 6 to 11 or so. Stop by!
My oldest son graduated on May 21 from Oneonta State University with a BA in Anthropology. He has been accepted in the MSW program at Fordham, and will start in the fall. I'm very proud of him.
I hope that this message finds you all happy and well....

Here is another update on Isaiah from Bev:


"Lord, we do give You all the praise for the way You answered our prayers for Isaiah. We continue to speak life over Isaiah and declare that what the Enemy has meant for harm You have and will continue to turn around for good. To You be all the Glory, Father, in Jesus' name, Amen."

I got this email from Bev last night:

Dear Prayer Friends, Below is a copy of a e-mail I received through a e-mail prayer chain I am on at a local church. Please continue your prayers for Isaiah, the Lord is answering! God will be glorified through Isaiah's healing!
Thank you and God Bless,

A million thanks are not enough to tell you how much we appreciate all of your's and everyone else's prayers and support for Isaiah and our family. The only way we have come this far is by God's strength, mercy, grace, etc....... Joe has been living with Isaiah (at the hospital and now at John Heinz) since day one, sleeping (not really) in a hospital chair. I am with them from around 1:00 till 9:30p.m. Mentally, physically, and spiritually, Joe is the strongest person I've ever known. Over the past 10 years in dying to himself, the strength of God has been able to grow in him so much so that it has been only because of it, that he has been able to stay with Isaiah 24/7. To God be the glory!

Isaiah progresses every day. The doctors are very opptimistic for at least an 85% recovery within 3 months. But that's just for starters, and that's only from a medical standpoint, not God's supernatural standpoint. He is talking better, louder, and stronger everyday, he does everything physical, slowly, but again, better every day. He eats everything on his tray, but it still has to be mushy until his swallowing is back to normal. His old self is coming out again as he sometimes makes jokes and has everyone laughing. At times of course he is still "in the fog" as we call it, and stares into space or says things that don't make sense, but every day the "fog" lifts more and more. A few days ago he finally asked where he was and what happended, and Joe explained everything to him, so he does know, but does not remember anything that had happened to him at this time. He may be at John Heinz for 2 weeks+/- And just think, two weeks ago he was on a ventilator and in a coma............God is ......beyond words!!!!!

Thank you again

As you know Isaiah Musto has been moved to the John Heinz Institute, 150 Mundy Street, Wilkes Barre Pa, 18702 . Please keep the Prayers and Cards coming. I know they are appreciated more then words can say

I've forwarded Isaiah's story to my church's prayer network. We'll continue to pray for a speedy recovery, and comfort for his family...
