Howdy Everyone,

My apologize for not writing sooner!  Along with my pastoral duties within the church, I have been dealing with two hernias for the past two months.  I have been involved in Tae Kwon Do for 30 years but all of that exercise has caused my hernia problems.  My surgery has been put off twice so far because of infection issues on my skin.  Thank you for understanding.

In terms of our course, I have been ministering to a members whose brother had been sick for about one year for fluid on the brain.  The sister was watching her young brother going down hill quickly over the last few months.  I lost the ability to speak, eat and everything else at the end.  She was a faithful sister and went to visit him every other day.

We spoke often about her brother, how his wife was doing and how she was doing throughout his illness.

Along with my work as a pastor and my physical issue, my wife and I are foster parents to four children ages 5, 5, 7, and 9.

More to come….
