“For we fix our attention,
not on things that are seen,
but on things that are unseen.
What can be seen lasts only for a time,
but what cannot be seen lasts forever.”
~2 Corinthians 4:18 TEV~
Donna Fay Miller
Donna Fay is again having heart issues. Pray the doctors can get this under control.
Betty was able to come to church on crutches. She is doing better, but asks that we continue to pray she will not need surgery on her knee.
James will be having a pacemaker implanted next week. Pray for him as he prepares for this hospital stay/procedure.
Johnnie “Lil Man” Santangelo
Hey everyone! Over the last couple of weeks, Lil Man’s control of his left side has continued to improve. He has graduated from the current therapy program he was in and tomorrow will have his evaluation for the next level therapy program. His vision has still not improved. He had been complaining that he felt like something was in his right eye. So he saw an eye doctor here. The eye doctor found that mucous patches had formed on his right eye, filamentary keratitis, is the medical term for it. This condition is caused from dry eye and can be painful. The eye doctor believes that in Lil Man’s case the dry eye is probably a result of damage to his lacrimal gland from radiation. Right now, it is just affecting the right eye but the doctor is treating the left eye also because it can occur in both eyes. We are praying that once we can get this under control, then he can begin some type of vision therapy to improve his eyesight. His next follow up MRI and doctors appointments are in Arizona next Monday, June 22nd. He has come so far and we have faith he will continue to be healed! Thank you all for your prayers and please continue to pray for continued healing and guidance on this path to complete healing! We love you all! Love, Lil Man and Megan
Syl has had surgery following an accident. He is recovering at home and is down 42 pounds. He will not be able to return to Hope Center for some time. Please pray for him and his wife, Shirley. Also, pray for the need for some men and youth to step up and fill the need while Syl is recovering. (See below.)
Mrs. Pat Gill
As far as I know, the arrangements for Mrs. Pat Gill have not been made yet. I think out-of-state family will need to travel here before that is done. I will post the arrangements when they are available.
Young at Heart
This group’s monthly meeting will begin at 10:30 in the morning in the Fellowship Hall of New Zion Baptist Church. Mrs. Yvonne Curtis will share sacred music with us. Then, there will be a pot-luck meal. Everyone is invited to attend.
We will meet at our cabin Thursday at 6:30 for fellowship, a meal, a devotional, and special music. Come be blessed.
Friday Morning Bible Study
We will also meet at the cabin. Come for 10:00 or come earlier. After our study we will share a salad and dessert lunch. We would be happy to have guests with us.
Hope Center Needs Men!
Men are needed to “fill the shoes” of Sylvester Humphrey while he continues to recovery from his surgery. Please read the post from Saturday Evening. I am coordinating this, so please gather a group of men from your church and volunteer today. Syl “wore several hats’! I’m not asking anyone to give as much time as he did, just a day or portion of a day at a time. Please contact me for more information. Help is needed Tuesday-Friday, especially on two Tuesdays and three Fridays of the month.
I was blessed to have a call from one church immediately after I posted the need last night. I hope to hear from other churches today. Remember, Hope Ministry is an associational ministry, not just the responsibility of a few people. Men, please step up to meet the need.
