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 for it to be delivered to him.

Cindy and Ronnie McBrayer

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.

“How To Survive a Shipwreck by Jonathan Martin

51vaspu3xxlLife is turbulent. On that, we can all agree. Disappointed dreams, broken relationships, identity crises, vocational hang-ups, wounds from the past—there are so many ways life can send us crashing up against the rocks.

In this deeply personal book, Jonathan Martin draws from his own stories of failure and loss to find the love that can only be discovered on the bottom. How to Survive a Shipwreck is an invitation to trust the goodness of God and the resilience of your soul. Jonathan’s clarion call is this: No matter how hard you’ve fallen, no matter how much you’ve been hurt, help is on the way—just when you need it most.

With visionary artistry and pastoral wisdom, Jonathan Martin reveals what we’ll need to make it through those uncharted waters, how we can use these defining experiences to live out of our depths, and why it will then become impossible to go back to the half-life we once lived.

Thank you to all our believers.

Please put John Allen, brother of Jeff Allen, on your prayer list. He was recently diagnosed with thyroid cancer and will be traveling to Madison, Wisconsin for radiation treatment. Also, remember Tom Cummings, who has been diagnosed with melanoma.

___

Please pray for Jimmy Brown – he is the father of my great friends that attend ASF – Gloria and Shawn Buice.  He was down for the holidays and had some health complications and had to be hospitalized.  It looks like he will be here for a longer period.  He is a diabetic and that always complicates everything.  We are praying for a full recovery.

Cindy McBrayer

______

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,
