“God is fair; he will not forget the work you did and the love you showed for him by helping his people.

And he will remember that you are still helping them.”

~Hebrews 6:10 (NCV)~

Some of y’all know I had emergency surgery in August to fix a detached retina. Good news is that surgery worked, and my retina is all better. Bad new is, I’ve had double-vision ever since. I had a second surgery today to, hopefully, correct that. I’m home and doing well. It will likely be a few weeks before I know how much the surgery helped. I’d appreciate prayers for a speedy recovery and for fully restored vision. ❤️

Please continue to pray for the Young family and the Morris family.

Lottie Moon Offering for International Missions

A group of American students recently gave money to have the book of 2 Timothy translated into a language that does not have the whole Bible for the people to read. The students gave their money through the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering specifically for that purpose. What a wonderful way to share their funds! Now, people who did not have 2 Timothy available can read about young Timothy. I’ve had the whole Bible in English all my life. Now this people group is getting a Bible, book by book.

What an opportunity for anyone, but especially for young people! God must have big plans for their lives!

I’m so thankful for you! Let me know how I can better use TPL.
