Covenant Greetings to all from busy Glorieta where we are in our 7th of 10 weeks and before the week is out we’ll have over 3,000 guests on this campus.
The newest larger group to join us is Student Life that will have this week & the next one with right at 1,900 each week. Fuge finished their time here last week and they too averaged around 1,800 each of the 4 weeks they were here.
The biggest week will be our last week and that will be Collegiate week and that will conclude August 12th.
Now, let me challenge each of you to join us in praying for the following requests:
1] Roy Foreman and Linda [Oklahoma City, OK]
Some weeks back Roy fainted and was rushed to the emergency room to find that he is battling colon cancer. They resected his colon and removed some 12″ of it; they feel they have gotten all the cancerous cells and, at the moment, is not having to take chemo treatment. He is recovering nicely, he said.
Let’s join them in praying for a continued healthy recovery. Their phone number is 405-323-1820…..their emai isl: firstname.lastname@example.org.
2] Lynn Bailey and Shirley [Abliene, TX]
Just got the following update from them as follows:
3] Dave Zarbaugh [San Antonio, TX]
Dave has spent most of the summer with us as our Gateman; but, last week he began having sharp pains in both shoulders and wasn’t feeling too good; so, after much prayer decided to go back home for a medical checkup.
He arrived safely, but, in addition to the shoulder pain, he is fighting the summer heat in San Antonio.. Let’s pray for Dave’s doctors to be given wisdom to quickl,y discover the cause of his pain and with the proper protocol bring soothing relief to Dave. Some of you may want to call him and encourage him; if so…Here is his phone number: 210-771-9195….or his email address is: email@example.com
4] Sue Addy [Union, MS]
I just talked to Sue over the weekend to find that she is fighting to keep her “numbers” low in the cancer jargon; they are creeping up and has asked for our prayer support. She is still feeling strong enough to teach her SS Class and to write her newspaper column weekly. She was so excited that she felt well enough to join her kids and grandkids for a ride down the Pearl River over the weekend.
Let’s join hands, hearts in praying for her to begin seeing encouraging signs that our prayers on her behalf are being answered by Our Great Physician. Her email address and phone number are: firstname.lastname@example.org; & 601-774-5345….
Let me mention at this point, an additional need for prayer for the Addy family. Jerry Addy told me this past weekend that his new great granddaughter, McClain is having some serious medical issues & has been kept in the hospital in Nashville, TN.
Please join us in praying for the medical team working with her will be given the needed wisdom and knowledge to find the source of her difficulty and the ability to treat it successfully. Here is Jerry and Jimmie’s phone number: 662-801-6702 & email: email@example.com in case some of you feel inclined to share a word of comfort and encouragement to them.
5] Chaney Gregory & Jan [Columbus, TX]
Just talked to Chaney to find that her daughter, Jan, will be having an MRI tomorrow and again in 2 weeks before they proceed with the removal of an abdominal mass that doesn’t appear to be malignant. Let’s join together in asking our LORD to look with favor on bringing Jan through the surgery successfully and for a quick recovery. If you want to drop Chaney a note of encouragement here is her email address: firstname.lastname@example.org….
6] Jim & Carolyn McAtee [Bothell, WA]
Some of you know that Carolyn has been having a great deal of pain & discomfort for more than a year now with Planters Fachitis in her right foot. She has tired most everything that has been suggested without positive results. We would like to ask prayer for wisdom and knowledge to locate someone who might be able to help her….Thanks so much for your prayers for her.
Next, most of you know that we will be finishing our tenure here at Glorieta at the end of this summer session. We will be packing to leave for our new place of service in and around Bothell, WA to be near our daughter, Julie, and her family. Bothell is located between Bellevue on the south and Lynnwood/Woodinville on the north.
Please pray for our safety as we will be pulling a horse and trailer behind our RV, while Carolyn will be driving our car and taking 4 nights and 5 days to get to Bothell via I-25 & I-90 on September 1st.
At this juncture, we do not know our address there; but, at least for awhile, we will continue using our Mail Forwarding Address we’ve kept since we were full time RVers, which is PO Box 2428, PMB 5192, Pensacola, FL., 32513 if you want to stay in touch with us after we move on August 28th.
We will continue to use the following 2 email addresses, at least for awhile:
email@example.com & firstname.lastname@example.org….the two we’ve used while here will be stopped after 1 month we are told….they are: email@example.com & firstname.lastname@example.org……
It has been a special, special privilege for us to work so closely with so many of you who have become delightful friends a fellow sojourners over these years since it all began in the summer of 2005….thus making this summer our 12th summer of work here on this beautiful campus..
In some ways we will definitely miss being here on campus; yet, in other ways not so. We can only wish and pray for the complete success of Glorieta Camps 2.0 and that more and more guests and friends in the immediate area will be introduced to Our Lord Jesus Christ as their LORD and Savior too!
Some of you may not know that we have 3 Saturdays each summer given to entertaining local guests from the area and they come in droves to see for themselves why all the talk about the new Glorieta. A couple of Saturdays ago we had over a 1,00 people on our campus for that one event.
Well, sir, this has turned into a rather lengthy blog, but, wanted to catch each of up to speed on matters pertaining to our extended family and matters ongoing here on campus.
