WILLIE MYRICK – PERSON OF THE YEAR –

Myrick
When I look back over the stories in the year 2014, there is one story that sticks out more than all of the rest. I initially posted this story on April 26,2014. It was the story of young 9 year old Willie Myrick of Atlanta. Myrick was apparently playing outside his southwest Atlanta home when he was kidnapped. The perpetrator threw the young man in the back seat of his car and drove off. This young man of GOD had learned the gospel song “Every Praise” by Hezekiah Walker in Sunday School and began singing the song. The kidnapper kept telling Myrick to shut up to no avail.  Myrick kept on singing.  The kidnapper obviously grew tired of the young man singing this song and  then reportedly dropped little Willie off unharmed in East Point after driving him around for three hours.
“He opened the door and threw me out,” said Willie of his ordeal. “He told me not to tell anyone.”
Willie, however, did not listen to his kidnapper’s orders and his story is moving people of faith throughout the United States.
When I think of the courage of this young man, it really inspires me. He stood in the devil’s face and sang praises to the LORD. That took a tremendous amount of courage. For that reason, I am naming Willie Myrick, studiotj’s PERSON OF THE YEAR 2014!

MISSING BOY FOUND IN TIME FOR CHRISTMAS

Ok, I realize that I haven’t posted in a while. As a matter of fact, it’s been a long while. When I actually saw how long a span it has been, I really couldn’t believe it. Several people have sent me things to post and I haven’t posted any of them. One story came from A. Renae and it is one that I was going to post anyway. This is old news but in all actuality, any story that you read is old news. lol
There are some sad, sick people out in this world. Some of the things that people do amaze me to absolutely no end. The bright side is that mother and child are sure to have the happiest Christmas ever Consider the following story written by:

clayton county missing
CLAYTON COUNTY, Ga. — A boy who was reported missing about four years ago was found in a Clayton County home Friday night.

Five people were also arrested at the house in the 800 block of Duke Court in Jonesboro,

Clayton County police were first called to the home shortly before 11 p.m. to perform a welfare check. Police Sgt. K.T. Hughes said the people inside the house denied knowing anything about a possible victim. Investigators searched the home, but didn’t find anything.

The police department received another call from the home a short time later, so officers returned to the location. As they searched the house, the missing boy was able to call his mother, who then told the police her son was hidden behind a false wall, Hughes said. Investigators found the boy behind the wall.

The five suspects were charged with obstruction, false imprisonment and cruelty to children. More charges are pending. Their names have not been released.

Hughes said the victim’s mother, who lives in another state, traveled to Georgia to see her son. They were reunited Saturday morning.

Willie Myrick, 10.


A popular Gospel song titled “Every Praise” written by Hezekiah Walker recently became a weapon for a kidnapped 10-year-old boy who refused to stop singing it until his kidnapper was forced to let him go unharmed.
Police told 11 Alive that earlier this month young Willie Myrick, who was 9-years-old at the time, was kidnapped from his driveway in southwest Atlanta, Ga. He then reportedly dropped little Willie off unharmed in East Point after driving him around for three hours.
“He opened the door and threw me out,” said Willie of his ordeal. “He told me not to tell anyone.”
Willie, however, did not listen to his kidnapper’s orders and his story is moving people of faith throughout the United States.
He explained that after the man, who is still on the loose, grabbed him and threw him in the back of his car he just kept “praising God” with Walker’s “Every Praise,” a song he learned in Sunday school.
While he was singing, Willie said his kidnapper yelled expletives at him.
“He told me, shut up f*** boy,” said Willie. He, however, kept singing until his kidnapper got tired and threw him out ordering him not to reveal what happened.
Willie’s mother said she realized what had happened to her son after he called her from a local woman’s phone and she broke down.

“I cried,” she told 11 Alive. “I broke down and cried.”
Last Thursday evening, community leaders held a meeting in young Willie’s honor at Mt. Carmel Baptist Church and the “Every Praise” songwriter, Hezekiah Walker, heard about it and showed up to support Willie.
“It’s just emotional to me because you never know who you’re going to touch,” said Walker about the story.
“I just wanted to hug him and tell him I love him,” Walker added.
Walker received a standing ovation Thursday when he gave a hug to Willie as the boy cried as he met his favorite singer.
“I really believe that God spoke through me to save that young man’s life,” said Walker.
Police have released a sketch of Willie’s abductor and are asking anyone with any information to call CrimeStoppers at 404-577-TIPS.
