Nevertheless he was steadfast in talking to anyone about how wonderful the Lord was. After the accident he changed from being Godless to expressing love For the Lord, and how the Lord saved him. He wanted to learn about the Lord everyday. We talked a lot about how the Lord redeems, and he would tell his story to anyone who would listen.
It was apparent he had a hard time speaking up for himself to people he thought were authority figures. He wouldn't tell the doctors things he was feeling and needing; he was very constricted in expressing these things; he seemed to feel unworthy and suspicious of their acceptance. I had to work with him to help him see it was OK to express what he thought or needed for his body.
