U Matters

This week I joined Holly in the US. My mother had hip-replacement surgery and we are in a rota with my two brothers and sister to help provide care for her as she recovers. Last Sunday, a top rehabilitation physician from NYC was worshiping with us. I couldn't resist asking her for advice on how to help my mom. She said, "Tell her how fortunate she is to have a hip replacement at 82."

How fortunate we are to be able to live and even thrive in the world God has given us. No matter what our situation is, we have a God who loves us, knows us, and watches over us. As our Lord says through the Psalmist: "Be still and know that I am God."

Please support our children supporting the children in Nepal by visiting the VBS Registration Table at The LAWN and purchase the 'ice block' token at $20 per block. The children will use this block to build our very own 'EVEREST mountain’ (placed inside the lower annex) and the more blocks the children have, the higher the mountain and that equates to the monies raised for the people of Nepal.
