So Thankful for the "Family"




The family of fellow-believers, called the "church" is one of God's greatest gifts. "He sets the solitary in families" writes the psalmist in Psalm 68:6. Even with a flock of 14,000 people, there is still a warmth and intimacy that we experience especially in times like these. I am so thankful for this. I took Lenya today for a pre-op PA and lateral chest X-ray and EKG. The surgery has been moved up from 1:00 in the afternoon to 7:45 in the morning on Wednesday. (earlier is better than later). The rest of today we're resting but we're resting gratefully to be so bathed in prayer and support. Besides salvation, Lenya is the BEST thing that ever happened to me! Thanks to all who have written and voiced their prayers and love both here, on Facebook and in person.

To the Heitzigs' our prayers are with you. You have made such an impact in our lives. I have attended Calvary since the grocery store days, and have grown in my faith every year since.
Skip it is great to hear and read your faith in the Lord and that you are believing in Him. Lenya is truly a blessing to you and the Lord's will be done for her and Nathan and yourself!!
Thanks again for all you do!!
In Christ's name, The Hustons

Skip,
We pray for God's miraculous touch in Lenya's body, and that the peace of Holy Spirit will rest on you both, and Nathan. If there's anything we can do.....
