Greetings once again in Jesus Name,

May God bless you and your Preaching for this Lord's Day. I do Pray that you will see many Souls come to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ our Savior. I Pray that your Church will see much growth in these days of perilous times.

Please help us Pray for all of the Prayer requests that has been shared with us, as we like to say, “Pray for the other as you would want them to Pray for you.” I do ask you to Pray for our friends Bill and Lillie Isaac's, Bill is a victim of cancer. They attend our Church and are some wonderful friends and Church members. I know that God has the best in store for these dear folk, and we are Praying for His will to be done.

We also ask you to remember Jewell Busick another member that has had surgery this week. Help us trust the Lord that the reports and results will be positive. She is another wonderful Christian friend and faithful Church worker.

In Christ and His Love,

Br. Roger
