Michael (Myrtle Beach, SC): Happy 21st Birthday, Marcus! Thank you for your exemplary character. I am greatly encouraged as a brother in Christ to see how you continue to honor Him in everything you do. I am praying that God will be glorified mightily through you during your recovery and return. May God bless you, your family, your teammates, and USC with His glorious grace, mercy, and peace. "But Jesus said to me, `My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.' Therefore, I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me. For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities. For when I am weak, then I am strong." (2 Corinthians 12:9-10)
