Update Salie

I just wanted to give a quick update on Salie, as many have said they are praying for her.  Much to our surprise, she is actually doing a little better.    She came to church last night but came after dark.  She remained outside and had covered much of her face.  My wife said that she almost didn’t look the same the other day and I think because of this, she didn’t want others to be able to see her.  We took her home and when she got out of the car I was able to see her face.  My wife was right.  How quickly somebody can change is absolutly amazing.

A little later, I was praising God that no matter what will happen, she has given her life to Jesus.  I also began to think about what physical pain, sickness and death can do to somebody but if we could only realize what spiritual sickness and death can do to somebody maybe we would work harder, pray harder, preach harder, evangelize harder and live more faithful.  My prayer today is that God would wake us up and realize the condemnation and suffering that will happen for lots of people.

    Praise God that He is beginning to heal Salie. She is in our prayers. Her faithfulness in coming to church, even with all that she is going through, is really encouraging and challenging. Actually, the whole attitude of the church during this time has really been uplifting. We can’t help but wondering how we, or our churches, would react in the same way that yours has. And sadly, I don’t think it would be as well as yours has. God is truly doing a great work over there, and it is awesome to see Him work. We are praying for you always. God bless.
