Thanks all for your prayers. My brother finally called...not me, but he talked to my mom and sister. Apparentely, since he quit his job (where he was working 16-18 hours/day, has been transferred to a new city with every promotion--three times in past three years) he's been feeling like a failure because he couldn't handle it. He's living with a friend, has no income, sometimes no food and has been in very low spirits (he's already had bouts of depression). He's been looking for a job but nothing yet. My sister tried to talk him into coming "home" but he doesn't have money to buy a plane ticket. We'd like to try to pull some funds together to get him here, but none of us can really afford it either right now. But at least we've heard from him and he's still alive! Praise the Lord! I pray God will lead him home if that is His will.
