FROM OUR HOUSE TO YOUR HOUSE 

MERRY CHRISTMAS 

NEWS FROM THE PERRY'S

As the year 2015 ends, here we are once more sitting near the fireplace making the most of the moment, with another year before us, and I might add, with great expectations. as we pause for time to give thanks to Him for His many, many blessings.

The years seem to go by faster each year. This year we are just grateful to be alive. Pastor Bill has developed an allergy to the dust found here in the valley, which has become a bit of a challenge. We’ve found spending time in the Arizona high-lands may be the only remedy needed for this malady.  The Lord is blessing us as we serve the church in Valley Farms, once more we have seen some come into fellowship, and some leave. Over all, we are excited with the valley attendance, as well as the world-wide viewings, that have reached a weekly average of 1,600.

In April/May of this year we were blessed to be able to take a 30 day round trip tour through the Panama Canal, stopping in Mexico, Nicaragua, Guatemala, Costa Rica and Colombia South America. Making acquaintance with a few, yet ministering to many. Avery relaxing, Blessed cruise. In September we flew to Wisconsin for a visit with Victor and Carol, Kathy’s sister and brother-in-law. It was in October, we were blessed with a visit by our son Eric, from New Jersey.

In June, we made a trip back to Indiana to participate in the graduation at Newburgh Seminary and College of the Bible. It was a joy to re-visit Glenn & Carole Mollette, and other friends, and meet the many graduates of Newburgh. On our way back home to Arizona, we stopped by northern Minnesota, for a great visit with Dal & Carrie King, at their home in Browerville. We also stopped by Parker, CO for a few days with Ronnie, Jennifer and Kiley. We are now starting to get excited, anticipating our new year. In the Lord, life is always very exciting.

This year we continued to be involved with helping at the “The Hope Women’s Center”. This year we are serving chapel service once a month at the Logos Christian School in Casa Grande. Kathy has been elected to the School Board in Coolidge.  It is such a blessing to see Todd Ovitt taking more responsibility at the church, as he is taking the pulpit once a quarter. We are thanking the Lord daily for him. We continue to be humbled, yet excited, that the Lord would entrust us with the responsibility and joy of pastoring the Community Christian Church here in Valley Farms, Thank you Jesus!   

This year Pastor Bill had his 2nd book published, we are excited about that, as both his and Kathy’s books from last year are doing well, so we continue to work at our writing as the Lord allows. We are now getting ready for Christmas and the New Year. Looking forward to what the Lord has for us, what an exciting time to be living, to be able to witness God’s work first hand in the affairs of men and women, here in the Southwest, and throughout the world, knowing that His return for His Church could be any moment. Blessed be the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ.

In January 2015, Kathy was sworn in as a member of the school board for the city of Coolidge’s “Unified School District”.  It is still our greatest JOY this time of the year to welcome back to Arizona our returning “Snow Bird” friends, WELCOME BACK FRIENDS!  

As we approach the end of the year, and move into 2016, we are looking forward to getting to know our church friends in a deeper way, as we continue to “Preach the Word; WITHOUT COMPROMISE.” It has been truly a full year for us as the Lord continues to use us, as we make ourselves fully available to His direction, in order that He may use us in whatever way He sees fit. We are in His hands! 

Pray that we may forever keep in mind that Jesus Christ is the REASON FOR THE SEASON! Also that we are sure to KEEP THE MAIN THING, THE MAIN THING, and teach the Word of God Without Compromise!!
MERRY CHRISTMAS!

MOTHER CHOOSES TO HAVE BABY INSTEAD OF CANCER TREATMENT- This is Cara’s Story

 Cara Combs Facebook status update 

from November 13th:

"I feel it's time to post this because I know a lot of information is going around. Last week I was diagnosed with stage IV melanoma. I am also 25 weeks pregnant. I can't begin treatment while pregnant so I have some tough decisions to make. Against the advice of my oncologist, I am choosing to delay my treatment for three weeks in order to get the baby to 28 weeks. There is no good decision here. We will both be fighting for our lives and I feel incredibly guiltily about that. I saw a dermatologist last year and she didn't find anything concerning. Even my oncologist can't find the source. At 38 you don't expect to find out that you are dying. It definitely puts things into perspective. All I can say is enjoy every minute with your kids and don't stress about little things. The baby will probably be born the first week of December and I will start treatment 48 hours later. I know we are in for some big upcoming battles. Thank you for all of the support we have received so far. It is very much appreciated!"

It is now, the baby is 28 weeks, with the possibility of sustaining life outside the womb.

"Welcome to the world baby Shaylin. "Shay". Arriving today (Dec 5) 2 lbs, 1.2 oz, she is doing amazing. They are even going to try and take out her breathing tube this evening to see how she does. "

The Lord has His reasons, the Lord has His ways, and Cara passed away early on December 8th.  She did get to meet the baby. Her husband posted this update.

"I wanted to let everyone know that we lost Cara Walters Combs this morning. I don't have to tell you how great of a person she was. She will be missed by all. I always knew she was destined for greater things. We all have a perfect angel looking over us. She was the strongest person I ever met and the best wife and mother. She sacrificed everything so her legacy could live on. Thank you all for your support and prayers. She was my everything and always will be."

Thank you all for your prayers.
