A Supporting Body

As I looked around during our prayer time today (yes, I did have my eyes open), my heart was warmed as I saw you support each other through prayer -- small groups of people gathered around those who had shared prayer requests and were wanting to know that God heard our prayers.  I believe one evidence of God hearing our prayers was the visible support surrounding those who had requested prayer, for from Matthew 18:20, we read, "For where two or three are gathered togehter in my name, there am I in the midst of them."

To you 14 men who traveled to New Jersey yesterday, God bless you for burning off some spiritual calories by helping with hurricane cleanup, sharing your faith, and ministering to the gentlemen who lost his home.

And to many, many of you who supported our family during October -- Pastor Appreciation Month -- thank you so much. We are undeserving.
