Good Friends and needed Prayers....

As we closed out the meeting in Chesterton, Indiana it was with a sad heart. We had been met with the news that a dear friend and brother in Christ is now battling cancer, and another friend was diagnosed with MS. There are many who because of failing health and old age may not be there next time we return.

Life is always precious but when you see your friends in pain or battling sickness it reiterates the verse in James 4:14 "Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away." We have no promise of tomorrow or even of our next breath. I believe in giving roses to dear ones before they are in the grave: I thank God he allowes us the great honor of calling Brother Don Magnason and Brother Steve Allmon our dear friends. Brother Steve has been the Adult Sunday School teacher and Song Leader for as long as we've been going there. He is a true friend.

Brother Don has shown us what a real Christian brother is indeed. He has a heart for others and is willing to work in whatever way that he can. He and a group of men from the church came and worked at our barn raising we had. He was a wonderful and diligent worker. He and his wife, Marilyn, are very special to us. Our prayers are with these dear families as they face the valley's ahead.
