  • David and I celebrated our 58th Anniversary in ICU at Regional. At 7:15pm I thanked our Lord for his still being with me. Now I want to thank all of you who prayed. Plus Jim & Chrystal, Chris & Bonnie, Roy, our children who stayed with me and made late night trips, our grandson Bradley and my Sis Karen who stayed with me. All of you held me up when I needed you. You were servants of our Father. May HE bless you always! We also give thanks for the skill and dedication of his doctors and nurses. Nancy Holmes — David too

 

  • We would like to express our heartfelt thanks to the folks of Sullivan FCC for their expression of love and support of us and our ministry to the men and women in our prison system. This love and support was demonstrated by the wonderful turnout we had at last Sunday’s delicious chicken and noodle luncheon in the fellowship hall. A very special thanks goes out to Missionary Units 7, 6 and 1 for providing the delicious food. If you’d like to keep up with the ministry, you can follow us on our Revival In Prison Ministry Facebook page. We pray God’s blessings on each and every one of you. In His Service, David & Debbie Brewer
