wonderful news for a new year!

We are happy to report that Brad Skinner is out of the hospital and well on his way to recovery.  Thank you ALL so much for your prayers and donations. You guys are the best!  He has home health care coming in so he can be with his boys.  He is very humbled by what everyone has done to help during this critical time.  He is not a very religious person, but he told me yesterday that he is thankful to God and the people in his life.

My philosophy has always been – follow and do as Jesus would do and others will see Him in you.  This is exactly what has happened with Brad.

P.S. He is looking for a used washer and dryer if anyone happens to run across a set.  Call me or Ronnie and we can arrange it to be delivered to him.

DO YOU WANT TO BE A MISSIONARY FOR A WEEK?
 ASF is planning a trip to Sus Hijos in El Salvador for February 7-14.  We will be building at least one house, visiting the orphanages and children’s prisons and will be feeding the homeless, to name a few of the things that we will do.  
We are looking for volunteers to go with us and help us with this ministry.  We don’t have the cost as of yet but it will be around $1000.  It depends on how many people are going and how many houses we want to build. 
If you are interested, please contact Barbara Tape……barbara@digitalpark.com…….If you feel led to go with us and do not have the funds there will be some scholarship money available to help out.
More details will follow as our plans progress.

Cotton Patch Gospel: Matthew and John (Volume 1)  by Clarence Jordan 

51zrlp2fv4l-_sx322_bo1204203200_The Cotton Patch Gospel, by Koinonia Farm founder Clarence Jordan, recasts the stories of Jesus and the letters of Paul and Peter into the language and culture of the mid-20th century South. Born out of the Civil Rights struggle, these now classic translations of much of the New Testament bring the far-away places of Scripture closer to home: Gainesville, Selma, Birmingham, Atlanta, Washington, D.C. As Jordan once wrote, “While there have been many excellent translations of the Scriptures into modern English, they still have left us stranded in some faraway land in the long-distant past. We need to have the good news come to us not only in our own tongue but in our own time. We want to be participants in the faith, not merely ­spectators.” More than a translation, The Cotton Patch Gospel continues to make clear the startling relevance of Scripture for today. These editions come complete with new Forewords and a new Introduction by Habitat for Humanity founder Millard Fuller. Smyth & Helwys Publishing is proud to help reintroduce these seminal works of Clarence Jordan to a new generation of believers.

 

prayer

Brad Skinner, a local self-employed contractor who has also served as a long-time community baseball coach was in a severe car accident today (December 22, 2016). He has multiple injuries, the worst of which is a fractured pelvis and hip. He is fortunate to have survived.   Please include him and his family in your prayers.

Craig Seelman and Judy Hamilton are heading back to Mayo Clinic. The transplant doctor called after looking at the reports and they feel Craig needs the IV’s to steady the rejection. They will be there for three days. They want to be sure because of his sudden increase of numbers.  Continued prayers would be most appreciated.

Prayers are needed for my husband, Ken. He is still undergoing chemo for treatment of bile duct cancer (15-months now!) and has a CT-scan coming up on the 14th. We’re obviously hoping for great results. Your prayers would be most appreciated.
God bless,
