And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; The Lord will raise them up.

- James 5:15a, NIV

I would like to share with you a prayer request on my behalf. Some of you know that I've had some issues with my back that began to get worse last fall. If you’ve been here for the Drive-in Worship Service, you know that I had to sit down during the sermon because of the pain. I was able to receive two sets of injections in my back that relieved some of the pain and allowed me to stand again, but this did not solve the underlying issue which will require surgery. So, I have scheduled that for June 11. I'm asking for your prayers -- that my “sick” back will be made “well.”

After my surgery it will take six weeks for my back to heal. So, I am also asking for your prayers for our church staff and others who will be stepping up while I'm gone. Brian will be preaching the majority of the services along with two guest preachers. Brian will also be holding things down on the pastoral side and leading the staff in my absence.

Between now and then we are transitioning our Online Worship Service to one that will be posted on the Internet live as it is happening, but it can also be viewed later at any time. If there's anything you think we need to discuss or talk about prior to June 11, feel free to contact me so we can talk about it. 

Friends, I believe in the power of prayer, so I ask for your prayers for me and for our church during this time.

P.S. – If anyone has any acoustic guitars not being used, our Brazilian church has an outreach ministry teaching young people to play the guitar, but some of the kids don’t have guitars. If you have a playable guitar that you wish to donate for a good cause, please contact me or Brian and we will pass it along. Thanks!
