COMMENT FROM AN INTERNET CONTRIBUTOR: "HEY PASTOR BILL, YOU SOUND LIKE YOU HAVE AN AGENDA WHEN YOU PREACH!"  

YOU BET I DO!  (BUT ONLY ONE!) To teach the Truth! To teach that all roads do not lead to Heaven. Only the narrow road, that leads to repentance! Through Obedience to following Jesus Christ as Lord. All other roads lead to hell and destruction (John 8:32).

WHY REACH OUT AND MINISTER TO MEN?

  • THE LORD S CALLING FAITHFUL MEN TO LEAD THEIR FAMILIES!

PRAYER REQUESTS AND PRAISE REPORTS

Pray for Chum:   Update from Callie.  "We went in for Chum's appointment for radiology/oncology.  We got bad news.  Chum has multiple tumors in his brain, 20 plus.  He starts full brain radiation Tuesday for 10 days, then he will start chemo after that.  Please continue your prayers.



Pray for Michele:  Michele is feeling better, probably getting out of the hospital on Sunday.

My brother Chuck went home to be with the Lord on Friday.


Marie Etling who was battling cancer went home to be with the Lord this week..
.
Pray & Praise for 14 year old Hope:  Thank you for your prayers for Hope!!  God is answering!  Last week Hope we received the following praises!  She is doing GREAT with her walking!  What a THRILL to watch her!  She is working hard and is VERY motivated!  She is starting some pool therapy this week to help loosen and strengthen her ankles, feet, and overall range of motion.  She is able to go up and down stairs now.  She is making great progress and loves being back with all her friends at school.  She is doing well academically, also.  Her parents are so thankful for all those who are helping to make this possible!  Their hearts are overflowing with thankfulness to the Lord for the great work that He is doing in her life!

Pray for: The many in and around Valley Farms who do not know the Lord as their Lord and Savior,

Pray for Our son Eric: Eric sent us this update concerning his Papilledema, intracranial pressure.  Thursday morning I had my 2nd Lumbar puncture (spinal tap) which took roughly 2 and 1/2 hours from the time we got inuntil we got out.  The goal was to check the pressure of the cerebral fluid.  The thing to remember was the doctor told me. "It looks like the pressure is normal"...  I asked him what the measurement was and he said 32.5.  (I had no idea what that meant)...anyway ...I went to my newly scheduled appointment with my Neurol-ophthalmologist later in the day.  I found that "32.5 IS NOT NORMAL".  This it is high.  It seems that 6 - 20 is a typical reading for normal.  She wrote me a prescription for some medication.  I was furioius when she told me it was high---not with her---but the doctor that told me it was normal.  I just wonder how my conditions would have been if I was put on the medicine 5 months ago.  She is saying that I may have had the Papilledema for awhile and my vision may not be fully corrected.  (possibly, but she is not too optimistic)  She wants me to see a surgical doctor to discuss surgery options if the vision does not come back.   I think we are going in the right direction now.  Thanks so much for the continued prayers.

Pray for: The many in our families and in our community who are caught up in the cult of MormonismPray their eyes would be opened to the truth of the True Christ. That Christians would see the area in and around Valley Farms as a wide open MISSION FIELD.

PRAY: The Church would not give in to the pressure from the world for Spiritual Correctness, (that is, not confronting the make-believer who claims to be believers), yet they continue in their disobedience, as if the Lord has given them a License to Sin! HE HAS NOT! (1 John 2:19). Pray that the Church would be Strong,  yet compassionate in their confrontation.

Pray for:  OUR PRESIDENT and VICE PRESIDENT,  THEY NEED OUR PRAYERS!!  

Pray that: All who are attending the Community Christian Church, as well as all who have ever attended- The Lord Jesus knows who you are, and He knows your needs. We pray that He will meet your every need. If your need is Salvation, and you have not yet accepted the Lord's invitation to join His family of believers by being born again, I pray that today will be the day you make that decision..

Pray that: All who know Jesus as Lord and Savior would start to live as if they do, and  will be willing to pay the one debt we owe for our Salvation; that is the debt of LOVE (Romans 13:8)! 

Pray: That all men who are called into the pastorate would know the need to study to gain advanced Training into a deeper and broader  understanding of the HolBible (2 Timothy 2:15)

Pray for: Pastor Bill as he teaches God's Word (1 Timothy 2:2). Also that the congregation would encourage him, and continue to love and encourage one another ( John 13:34).

      Bro. Bill and Kathy,

      Sorry to hear of your family's loss with your brother passing. Rejoicing with you in knowing he is with the Lord---

      The older we get and the more friends and family who pass on before us just makes heaven sound even more sweeter!

      As Timothy says...listening for the Trumpet!

    9. Hello PB
      Our hearts rejoice with you over the joy of knowing your brother is where pain is no more.
      Thank You for your message and all you put into it to teach us.
      The blessing of those who have overcome the devil - if the world only knew the joy of being a child of God. John 10:10.
      I look forward to the victory in Jesus - always first in our lives.

      I pray you God's comfort in this time my friend.

      Yes, this makes it much more understandable- and just why our pastors don't teach us.
