Some goings on

Tomorrow Patty and her sister Maureen are flying into Philadelphia to see their mother who has terminal cancer. About a week ago the hospice nurse called them and informed them that the end was very near. They have spoken with her a lot by phone this past week and she is at the point now where she can't even hold the phone by herself. This will be a very tough time for Patty and Maureen as they will be saying goodbye to their mother, so please keep them in your prayers. Also please pray for their mother as she prepares to go home to the Lord and that she will not be in any pain. They are keeping her comfortable now with morphine. We do believe now that she has accepted Christ as her saviour and we praise the Lord for that. They are leaving tomorrow afternoon and their dad is picking them up tomorrow night from Philadelphia which is about 3 hours from where their mother is, but it was way cheaper to fly into Philly than any of the other smaller airports like Wilkes Barre or Allentown.

On a good note, I am going to see my friend that I have written about who was in detox about 4 weeks ago. I have been meeting with him and going over a Turning Point Living Free workbook with him. He has been doing great so far and I do believe he is going to beat this addiction. Pray that I may continue to be an encouragement to him and that he will allow the Lord to work in his life and heal him from his addictions. He has expressed to me that he has a hard time "hearing from or connecting to God". Those are his exact words. I have been praying that the Lord would show him His grace and mercy and to give him a complete deliverance from these addictions.

Be Moved!
