Family of Garyn Troost thankful for community’s support

Thank you for your efforts to find our beloved son Garyn. For your love, unselfish acts of kindness, caring hearts and generosity. We are overwhelmed at how God placed you in our lives and hearts and of what care you showed us.

Jen Waller, you are an angel sent from above and I don’t know what we would have done without you. Terry Johnston, you are a very humble and giving man of your time, talents and wisdom, thank you for all you continue to do for us. Thank you for being willing to put your heart out there for those that are missing and their families, you will be blessed as you are a blessing to those that are helped.

To the searchers, oh my goodness, what a terrific group of men and women, giving of your own time to help a stranger is a true act of stewardship and kindness, we can never thank you enough. For the Solid Rock facility, we thank you for housing us and our group while there, it was truly a blessing to be together. David Powell, God used you to give us our miracle and led you to our son. Thank you for your selfless act that has led to sorrow for what you have seen and we pray that you will be comforted by God, your family and community.

To the administrators of the Sterling Neighborhood page, thank you for the time and effort you put into helping us get the word out about supplies and getting the people of your community to pray for us and to help us search for our son. For the pizza that was so generously donated by your local pizza place, for the drinks, snacks, flyers and everything else we are so grateful. Thank you to the Sterling Baptist Church for letting the command center be stationed there and to the secretary for her love and kindness.

Most importantly thank you for the prayers that have been lifted up on behalf of our family. God sent you all at just the perfect time and we know he is carrying us through this dark time. To Pastor Scott Coffman and the College Heights Church thank you for praying with us and for finding transportation for our group, such a blessing. Isaiah 12:2: “Surely God is my salvation: I will trust and not be afraid. The Lord, the Lord himself, is my strength ad my defense: he has become my salvation.”
