    You are definately a blessing and an encourager to the less fortunate.
    You are a great testimony to the world, an encourager, and a man of God miracles working in your life every moment.

    Clay may not have the arms and feet, but he definitely has a big heart, mind and soul. He is an eye opener to everyone with complete body parts but still feeling void with the world’s possession. He is a great inspiration for all the people that no matter what we are in life, God has special purpose for us in this planet. Thank you Clay for your courage and faith in God to go on with life. We are with you in prayers, so that the less fortunate and weak will find strength with this wonderful video. CHEERS!

    An incredibly amazing story of humility, endurance, patience, hope, and faith in God!

    As I watched the video, I was stricken with conscious guilt feeling of how I can be ungrateful, very upset, bitter, complaining, and grumbling when things do not measure up my expectations brought out by trials and inconvinience. Clay clearly demonstrates that patience brings forth the power of endurance.

    Clay, thank you for the call to humility, meekness and patience. Your patient suffering is truly inspiring.

    Wishing you the BEST in life, Clay.

  14. A beautiful gift from God!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And an inspiration for all!!!!!! He doesn’t waste what God has given him like most of us do, and he appreciates what God has given him where so many don’t!!
    thank you Jesus for this wonderful man to show us how selfish we all are and for showing us real beauty in this world

  15. Wonderful! This story makes me remember how good the Lord is. I am 77 years old and have times when I feel old and useless. Clay’s story reminds me how good God is. I thank the Lord for reminding me how fortunate I am. God bless you Clay.

It has been a tremendous inspiration to me and I wish to encourage Clay and to compliment his family for all their support and love to him. And one day all our imperfections will be made perfect by Him who will one day reign over His children.

  21. wong says:

    Real strength is not limited by physical imperfections. Praise God for his loving family and friends who helped mold and make him what he is now. Of course I trust that God has a part in it. And most important of all, Clay himself! Such determination and love for life. I am glad he has found what he likes to do in life and be an inspiration for all. Thank you very much for sharing this video with me and my friends.

  34. Giovani Faustine says:

    Here what I’ve learnt from Clay:
    God made us the way we are for many reasons. What we have to do is to see everything and say,”it’s perfect!”. There are no such thing as ‘disable’. From now on let’s say I CAN DO IT!
    ~praise the lord.

  35. Cairn says:

    How awesome is this courageous young man Clay.
    My youngest son loves this type of fishing here is Australia.

    Thanks again guys for sharing this with us.

    its really inspired me, very amazing really heart touching story and it gives more hope.

  38. ElsieNg-Rg says:

    It’s a beautiful and meaningful video showing how the mysterious work of GOD working in the life of this young man, Clay even though he has no limbs!Nothing can stop the work of GOD if you are the chosen one,
    PRAISE and GIVE ALL THANKS to our great loving LORD.

    As I viewed this video, my thoughts just came naturally to me thinking…
    With the POWER of GOD and HIS MYSTERIOUS WAYS in working in our lives, HE can change all impossibilities into possible ones at HIS PERFECT TIMING and not ours! All we have to do is to put our trust and faith unto the Lord and wait for miracles to happen in HIS time!

    Thanks for sharing all of your personal comments which I find them very interesting, personal, touching and uplifting.

    May GOD bless Clay, all his loved ones and everyone of you who has taken some time to write your personal comments. LOVE~lc~

  42. Hilary says:

    I am in awe of this amazing young man, who lacks so much physically, yet has everything in that he is whole and complete in spirit and soul, and in that way He has so much more than so many able bodied people, he has the true gift, he has overcome the physical.

    The incredible love of his brother, the dear mother love and the father who cherishes and nurtures his son are perfect examples of how our Father above would have us love and care for our families.

    Clay, you are an inspiration and a blessing. My husband being a fisherman and seeing your story has been deeply moved!

    Thank you for sharing this with us.

  43. Rose says:

    You have already caught the big one.
    God Bless.
