A Prayer For Today
Heavenly Father, we thank you for your incredible love, wisdom and precious
Word. God we ask that you manifest your holy presence to those in need of
healing, restoration, power, protection and fellowship.
We pray that you open up our hearts, so we don't hesitate to believe that we can
do all things, through Jesus Christ who strengthens us. We know when seeking
you, we must be sincere, and be ready to make a deeper commitment. We know
you are serious about producing the change in us that will glorify you. Father, we
pray for your secrets, the truth and the way. Help us think and speak words to
bring forth positive results. Help us align our talents as it relates to your
purpose. Thank you for enlightening our conscience.
Thank you for your guidance, mercy and grace.
God bless Troy and Troy’s House. We strive to obey your will and follow your
peaceful path. We promise to give you glory. Amen

What Is Troy’s House?
Troy’s House provides hospital housing to families that visit their loved ones in
the hospital. We help patients stay connected with family and friends in their
time of need. In addition, we provide housing for out -patients receiving treatments when they travel over 100 miles, one way, to medical facility. Troy’s House
shall provide a room, food, transportation, or hotel vouchers to 99.9% of
people whom travel to visit Central Coast hospitals.
Because of our own experiences, the need for hospital housing on the Central
Coast of California is imperative. Troy’s family and friends wanted to visit him
on a regular basis, but could not due to cost of gas, food and hotels.

the comforts of home. Guests are responsible for

exchange their linen each week. Personal laundry

TROYS HOUSE ON
8th grade graduation picture!
I have known Troy since Jr. High.
In fact , I only lived a few blocks away
on Lancer avenue! Troy has always been
a joy to be around! Even though he was
a "ladies man" a big flirt and football star,
he never had a "big head". He was kind
to everyone, it didn't matter to him what
"group" you were in. He was funny and
charming.....he still is! If I am ever able
to afford to go home for a visit I will most
certainly take a road trip to see him!
Unfortunately the last time I saw Troy
was around our 10 year high school
reunion. …....way too

Troy celebrated his 50th birthday
with 30+ family and friends in the
healing garden at St. John’s PV
Hospital, Camarillo, CA.

of so many people.
We can’t thank you enough for

a valuable place for all!!
Lisa Clymer-Mathews Remember you

Frezzy Cavalli Glad Troy is better. He is one tough guy.
Give him a hug for us. God bless him and the family. There is a reason for
God to keep him here. Troy must have something big to do.
There are values in life that you cannot place a monetary
value on. Faith, Love, Courage, Integrity,Trust, Truth, and
Honesty are in a club, of just a few. Troy, these are values
that you possess, that many people in society will never attain for various reasons. Troy, your DNA contains these
values, which makes me proud to be your Brother-in-Law,
and a lifetime member.
Happy Birthday My Brother, Love Mario
A Birthday Prayer From Wade Nelson
Father God, Thank you for my brother, Troy, who
has been an unshakable teammate (willing to
carry us all on his shoulders) & the utmost loyal
friend! I ask that you continue to give him the
courage and strength that he requires to run his
race to the fullest, fighting the good fight, as he
provides us all with an amazing example of determination, tenacity, & willingness to battle
through the daily struggles of this life. Fill his
mind with your peace and his heart with an abundance of your love so it radiates out of him, allowing anyone that crosses Troy’s path (believer
or non) to experience a tangible piece of your presence.
Psalm 37 assures us that if we delight in you, you will be sure to
give us the desires of our hearts. So as Troy celebrates his 50th
birthday, I confidently stand on your word and respectfully ask
that you give him his hearts desires. I pray that you allow him
to fulfill his dreams, be overflowing with your joy, living life to
the fullest. And may all that Troy does, bring you glory!
In the mighty name of Jesus, Amen

A Message From Troy
Thank you for
Dear Uncle Troy, this letter is dedicated to you
from your oldest nephew Wendell Hayes Jr.
I appreciate all the advise you have given me
over the years.
I am so glad I have followed them and listened
because it made me a much better person
than I already was. I became wiser too. It is
such a great honor of having you as an uncle.
I am so so so so glad that you are my uncle.
You cracked me up when you and I were both
making fun of Puff Daddy, Mase and all those
other jokers.You were saying instead of their
company being called bad boy records, their
record label company should be called
tee hee records lol.
One of the best moments I remember when
I graduated from Hancock College wearing
my robe and cap, as soon as I entered into the
auditorium with thousands of other students,
your face was the first face I saw. I just
wanna say happy 50th birthday uncle Troy
and it is such a great honor being your
nephew, One luv
Wendell Hayes Jr.
