Subject: Update – DEFountain
We enjoyed being back at Grace Baptist Church today – what a wonderful church family we have. Missionary and friend Gary Matheny preached both services and did a marvelous job. We are blessed to have been released so early from the cancer center – because of your prayers.
I want to share some verses from God’s word that seem to fit my situation:
II Corinthians 1:8b-11
“…we were pressed out of measure, above strength, insomuch that we despaired even of life: But we had the sentence of death in ourselves, that we should not trust in ourselves, but in God which raiseth the dead: Who delivered us from so great a death, and doth deliver: in Whom we trust that He will yet deliver us; Ye also helping together by prayer for us, that for the gift bestowed upon us by the means of many persons thanks may be given by many on our behalf.”
Please join us in thanking God for His goodness and healing. We are grateful for each of you who have prayed for us. Please continue so I may be found cancer free at my check up in October. I am feeling good and trying to use common sense to stay healthy while my immune system is growing stronger. Our hearts ache for so many others who are facing similar trials, and some far worse than what we have come through. Intercessory prayers of God’s people have become far more important and real to us through the circumstances of this past year and a half. THANKS AGAIN !
