Good Evening/Morning… or whenever you get this!
I first of all want to say a big thanks to everyone who has called, left messages on my voicemail, texted, brought cards, Facebook messaged or emailed your encouragement and concern. Every single gesture is greatly appreciated.
As for me, I had the Lithotripsy treatment Friday morning and have actually had an hour or so today when I almost felt normal. Unfortunately, no kidney stones have miraculously appeared and I am still having to take painkillers. This can apparently continue for up to 48 hours (and possible longer… here’s hoping not…). I have follow-up at the hospital on Tuesday and then I will know more. Until then, I still need your prayers. Thanks.
I do not believe that I will be in service tomorrow morning, unfortunately. If I feel up to it, I am going to try to get out for the evening service. Bro. Channell is coming up to preach for us so we know it’s going to be good. Either way, I will be praying that you have a wonderful time in both services tomorrow.
Thanks to each of you (musicians, worship leaders, praise singers, ushers, media and sound people) who are going to faithfully lead in our absence. Your faithfulness, as well as the faithfulness of everyone who shows up to worship and support is even more greatly appreciated in moments like this.
Next Sunday, October 8, Bro. Joiner and Sis. Hailey Hernandez will be joining us for Sunday Morning service. We look forward to their ministry.
The following weekend, October 15, Bro. & Sis. McGuire will be with us for both services. They will also be speaking at our Volunteer Appreciation Banquet.
Our group in Belize is having a wonderful time from all appearances and reports. We look forward to hearing their stories and seeing their pictures when they return. Please pray for them as they travel this coming Tuesday and Wednesday.
