My brother wrote this. I published it on Xanga after that. I am not exactly sure when Rick wrote this. I believe the date is when I published it to Xanga. But I didn't join Xanga until August of 2004, as far as I can tell. This could mean that the date is a backdate to match the exact date he sent me this email. I asked him for a reference letter and he sent me this. I'm not sure if I posted this on Live Journal or other blog websites before I posted it on Xanga or not. Rick invited me to visit Tulsa in 2004 after graduating high school and also the Philippines on a mission trip as well. I didn't do those things in 2004 but I eventually ended up going to Vietnam in 2012.
Some highlights from Thursday, the 2nd of Oct of 2003, as follows:
2003-10-02 - Thursday - 09:05 PM - Rick wrote the following about me, Oatmeal Joey Arnold: "I have been priveleged over eighteen years to witness the growth of a young kid nicknamed "Coolkid" or "Joe Cool;" who I am blessed to have as brother and friend-Joey Arnold.You see, he is my younger brother,and I have a lot of respect for who he has become,a more dynamic person than I ever could have thought. After overcoming speech problems as a child, as well as family difficulties, taking the burden so to speak of our family in my absence, he has struggled his way through high school and will now graduate this year. He is a testimony of what someone can overcome with God and some positive support from others, hough he never gained much support from me growing up. But I have never really believed in myself either, and he has actually caused me in recent times, ough over 2000 miles away, to help me overcome my doubt and belief in what I can ecome if I trust in God, and who he has made me to be. I know he is an vercomer because he was dealt a more difficult hand in life than I was, yet as isen above shame and wrong attitudes about others at a much greater altitude han I have come to, or may ever come to, and yet is not even removed from the environment which has plagued us. So, I actually put more trust in him than I o in myself involving the family, because I know that it is influenced well by im. The character and personality of Joey is endless, drawings and videos mazingly creative, and imagination stimulating and very much originial. He could be anything he wanted to be, be it director, designer, creator, Evangelist, inspirer of human creatures. I know that his heart is set to the higher goal-Helping and loving people, and not being bogged down by selfishness as I and most others in this world are. I'm praying that he as I have been called by God to preach the gospel to every creature no matter where he would take us, exploding the message of Jesus Christ creatively, dynamically, and effectively, with integrity in god holy and true. No matter hat he decides to do, I pray only that I be plugged into what good he is doing n this earth, to be involved with everything right and good in this world, for he all and not the few, which I know he will be present in. I want us to be nvolved with ministry together, because I know for the utmost fact that his character is pure. God bless you. I love you Joe. To Joe, my pick for Head Valedectorian of the 2004 class of Forest Grove High school, maybe not actual but definately one of the most impacting person for good in the school. Sorry Joe for not wanting to be involved with you and wanting to pull away, but we need to encourage one another, but I want you to come down soon, and maybe come down after you graduate to go to the Philippines if you want to come, and maybe come to Tulsa to stay-but pray about it. talk to you later. love, Rick."
