FORMAL DIAGNOSTIC REPORT CONFIRMING ASHER'S AUTISM
This was without doubt the most devastating news any parent could recieve grevious time in Michelle and Keith lives, as the couple also had 9 month old daughter Grace.
Asher 4 and Grace 2 Nana Rachelle & Grace
My mother Rachelle was a very intrinsic part of Asher's therapy and recovery from Autism. She assisted in his therapy, took him on training excursions and most especially spent alot of time with Grace, who by now was starting to really feel the typical effects of being the sibling to someone with a disability. She would sit outside his therapy room and answer all his questions - really trying to help him!
Michelle says "I really felt convicted YHWH/God was testing me to now live up to the message of 100% Faith! in him that I was preaching. We made a decision to cease our travelling ministry and pour all out efforts into our son with an early intervention program. We commenced a program called ABA (Applied Behaviour Analysis) which involved up to 40 hrs per week on 1 0n 1 repetitive training. We personally only did about 25 hours for about 3 years. It was extremely successful! We sowed the seed and God gave the increase.

I consider the next 5 years to be without a doubt the most challenging and difficult experience I had ever endured, surpassing my ordeal at sea. This pervasive and all consuming disability taught me a very different definition of 100% Faith!
This message I can now share with all those Mum's and Dad's suffering with the enormous frustration and sense of powerlessness , when facing Autism is that the Bible makes it clear that God will never give us a burden that will cannot carry and that even if that burden seems overwhelming at the time, God also says You can do ALL THINGS THROUGH YAHSHUA/JESUS WHO STRENGTHEN'S YOU.

AND YES THERE WAS THE OBSESSION WITH TRAINS.!! GRACE JOINED HIM
Most of our efforts between 1999 to 2008 were the approach I have taught about in the 6 part series. Going through breaking off all family and generational curses. Cleaning up all sin and rebelliion and unforgiveness in my own life and walking the walk of sanctifcation through faith. The more healed I became the more healed Asher became as all these things are generational and habitual. Children don't learn by what you preach they learn by watching how you act.
From 1999 - 2004 I spent several years volunteering my time 2 half days per week at Asher's school working as a teacher aide to assist him and any other children in the classroom that required assistance. This achieved marvellous results.
Asher, Grace & Cousin Elicia at Currumbin Rock Pools
YHWH/God profoundly blessed us in the years of 2004-2008 in Tweed Heads NSW where we resided for 4 years. He continued to send
us wonderful people to stay in our home and be part of our family. Jon Fritzler and Drew Waldron who were American Homestay
students lived with us for
1 year and it was without a
doubt the most entertaining. They were both pranksters and really took Asher
under their wings and taught him how to be a man
and still have alot of fun.

With our efforts and the YHWH'S abundant loving kindness our son was at the point now where no other assistance was require other than some therapy to help him with social cues. He is now a 15 year old boy who attends a mainistream Chrisitian college in grade 10, who is also an overcomer. I incorporate this message into my ordeal at sea to show that nothing is impossible with God for those that believe.
REMEMBER - WITH GOD ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE TO THOSE WHO BELIEVE.
