He gives strength to the weary
and increases the power of the weak.

David Sellers is much better and off the vent. He had Afib and fluid collected in his lungs. Bill thanks everyone for praying for his dad and that your prayers made a difference.

READ and WRITE SCRIPTURE TODAY
April 21 – Isaiah 40:29
Twelve Southern Baptist volunteer teams that have traveled from the United States to Eastern Europe to serve Ukrainian refugees. To date, Southern Baptists have donated more than $8 million to Send Relief and the International Mission Board (IMB) to go toward Ukrainian relief efforts.
“Romanian volunteers are at the station around the clock. Train tickets are free for Ukrainians.
One volunteer, Klara, said at the beginning of the crisis, she worked 20-hour shifts as the fire station’s red buses ferried weary Ukrainian refugees from the border of Romania and Ukraine. Most of the volunteers went to the border, Klara said. Not many thought to come and assist Ukrainians who were boarding trains to take them to cities across Europe.”
