I thank my God in all my remembrance of you, always in every prayer of mine for you all making my prayer with joy, because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now. (Philippians 1:3-5 ESV)
We pray for our friends and neighbors! How can we pray for you? Send your requests to my email address listed below.
Bless the LORD, O my soul, and all that is within me, bless his holy name! Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits… Ps 103:1-2
We have much to bless God for…
–Leah had a good report from the doctor, showing no further damage to her kidneys. Her diabetes is under control. She recently had to go through some tests for her heart, which all turned out well. She has a stress test this week. Please pray for her struggle with pain and exhaustion.
–Rebekah starts her MSW internship next week. Please pray for her health, especially her hypothyroidism.
–Victoria continues to be involved in various leadership positions in her church. She loves the girls in her small group! She starts her senior year in college next week.
–Maria had a great start to her senior year in high school. She is involved in the small group Victoria leads and also in the church where Brian is preaching.
–Brian is enjoying his part-time opportunities with hospice, with his denominational district, and with the small church where he is interim pastor. It is amazing how many wonderful opportunities to share the love and truth of Jesus arise. Please pray for his neuropathy in his hands and feet to be healed, as well as the wound on his foot, which has been an issue for many months.
–While we are thankful for the opportunities we have to bless our neighbors, we feel that God brought us to this neighborhood for a purpose. Pray that we will have the time, health, energy, resources, and opportunities to reach these special people with the mercy and grace of our Savior.
—The entire family has been blessed by the encouragement, generosity, and prayers of so many friends. Y’all have been conduits of God’s amazing grace to our lives. We love you and appreciate you!
–The church, the Appleton Cumberland Presbyterian Church, is very responsive to the ministry of Jesus Christ that is taking place. While the number of people in the congregation is very small in number, the hearts of the people are deeply devoted to Jesus. Rebekah and Maria are making a real difference among the children who attend.
