A Full-time Independent Chaplain

For More Than 23 Years
JANUARY 26th; LORD'S Day (Sunday); 2020.
*January 20th 2020 marks exactly 38 years Dr. Spence has been actively and faithfully preaching the Gospel. We praise GOD for His Blessing and Faithfulness. I Corinthians 9.16 says: “Though I preach the Gospel, I have nothing to glory of: for necessity is laid upon me; yea, woe is unto me, if I preach not the Gospel!”
THIS WEEK'S HYMN. “I Need Thee Every Hour” by Mrs. Annie Hawks (1836-1918). This Hymn was first published in 1872.
THIS WEEK'S THANKSGIVING. There were answers to Prayer this week. 1. Seven people have returned from the Hospital. 2. Dr. Spence and his Son visited a new Care Facility last week. Many spoke warmly of their appreciation for the Sermon. 3. The rest of last week's Church Services in the Care Facilities went well. Micah 7.18 says: “Who is a God like unto Thee?” Psalm 86.10 says: “Thou art great, and doest wondrous things.”
THIS WEEK'S PRAYERLIST. These Prayer Requests have been made by different Residents and Staff in the Care Facilities. 1. Five people who will be going in for surgery. 2. Two Ladies who will be moving to other Care Facilities. We will miss them in the Church Services. 3. A Lady who has kept her bed for more than two weeks. 4. Those who are trying to return Home. 5. A Lady asks Prayer for her Boss. 6. A Lady who lost her Husband and Son at the same time. 7. A Lady passed away last week. She constantly attended the Church Services for three years. Please pray for her Family. 8. A Lady who lost her Grandmother. Please pray for the Family. 9. An Aide who will have surgery on Monday and will be absent for three weeks. 10. Those who have serious colds. Matthew 15.25 says: “Then came she and worshipped Him, saying, Lord, help me.” *In the Thanksgiving and Prayerlist sections, the names of the people have been withheld to protect their privacy. Nevertheless, the Thanksgivings and Prayer Requests are real and actual. Respect for privacy is also the reason there are usually no photos of Residents on Dr. Spence's website.
THIS WEEK'S COLPORTAGE REPORT. 1. Last week, 128 Printed Sermons were distributed in a few Businesses but mostly in Care Facilities located in Monongahela and Pittsburgh. 1 Printed Sermon was mailed to an individual in Nevada. 2. Is there anyone who could use the King James Version Book of Psalms in Braille? If you or someone you know could use these Psalms, please contact us. The Book and postage are free.
IN THIS WORLD, there often arises temporary situations and unique circumstances. People necessarily leave their Homes and move into Care Facilities. Others are confined to their Homes. Very frequently, these people, spiritually, fall between the cracks. They are forgotten and forsaken. For more than 23 years, Dr. Spence has served as a Personal, Domestic, and Care Facility Chaplain meeting the spiritual needs of many of these people. James 1.27 says: "Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world." If you have questions or comments, or if you are interested in Dr. Spence's services, please contact us. Dr. Spence seeks to answer calls here in Southwestern Pennsylvania. However, he tries to go wherever he is requested.
