We have quite a few friends that we
need to mention here. However, because of limited space we unfortunately will
not be able to give all the details. Trust you understand.
Reverend Rudy & Fran Cervantes – San Diego, CA
Many of you have prayed for Rudy and Fran over this past year and I want to inform you that after many, many months of dealing with a myriad of issues, the battle is now over and she recently has entered into her eternal and heavenly reward. Please keep Rudy and his family in your prayers as they adjust to life without Fran, ok?
Hurricane Harvey & Irma
I think all of us can say that we have friends and loved ones and millions of others who have been impacted by the recent hurricanes in Texas, Louisiana, Florida, Alabama and Georgia. Folks, it goes without saying that we need to keep them in our thoughts and prayers as they try to recover from all the devastation and loss that they have gone through. Personally, I have sent our donations to the Nazarene Compassion Ministries at our World Headquarters in Lenexa, Kansas designating it specifically for the Hurricane Relief Fund that they have set up. Whether you send your support to them or some other organization like the Red Cross; Franklin Graham’s Samaritan’s Purse, Salvation Army, or some other reputable and responsible viable option, please let God use you to do something to help, ok?
Valerie Davidson – Front Royal, VA
On September 13th I received word that her husband Scott had passed way suddenly and to say that I was shocked, stunned, and saddened would be a real understatement. He was only 53 years old and I’ve known him since he was a young boy. I remember well when he and Val met at Detroit Bethel COTN and then got married. My heart literally aches for her. Please join me as I pray for Val and her 3 sons Pierce, Bryce, and Shane and their entire extended family during this very difficult time in their lives. I’m asking the Holy Spirit (The Comforter) to be so very close to them in the days, weeks, and months to follow, and that they will experience His peace, strength, comfort and assurance that Scott is with Him.
Back in early September my left eye was bothering me. After three days, it became so painful that Marti convinced me to go to the doctor. They took one look at me and sent me to the ER at Memorial Hospital here in Colorado Springs. They then sent me to a specialist who diagnosed that I had somehow scratched the cornea. How? I still do not know. He put some meds in my eye, and put a patch on it. After 4 days, he took the patch off and the pain was no longer there. PTL! However, my vision is still very blurry/fuzzy, and I’ve been trying to read/work with one eye and a magnifying glass and it’s been frustrating. So, I’m asking the Lord to heal it. He did it for Blind Bart (Mark 10) and others in the Bible, and if He did it for them, then He can do it for me! Amen?
