I want to thank everyone for praying for me and my family these past three weeks. I have been through some very trying times, but God has been with me every step of the way. I have been humbled by the expressions of love from my church family, and I treasure your prayers and friendship.
I want to express my gratitude for our church staff and support staff who have carried on in my absence. What a wonderful and gifted group of people we have here at Wilmer. I have certainly missed being present with my church family. I have missed teaching and preaching because that is what God has called me to do. One scripture has motivated me throughout my illness and recovery and it is Psalm 71:17-18:
“Since my youth, O God, you have taught me, and to this day I declare your marvelous deeds. Even when I am old and gray, do not forsake me, O God, till I declare your power to the next generation, your might to all who are to come.”
I am getting stronger and I am back at work some this week. I plan to be back to church this Sunday and look forward to seeing everyone. Thank you again my church family for praying for me and my family. We love you all and look forward to continue serving the Lord with you.
