 JUNE 16th; LORD'S Day (Sunday); 2019.

THIS WEEK'S HYMN.  “The Old Rugged Cross” by Rev. Mr. George Bennard (1873-1958).  This Hymn was written in 1913.

THIS WEEK'S THANKSGIVING.  There were answers to Prayer this week.  1. Several were released from the Hospitals and returned to their Care Facilities.  2. It was a pleasure last week to receive mail from a former Activity Director.  3. There were precious Meetings among the Care Facilities last week.  Psalm 31.19 says: “Oh how great is Thy Goodness!”

THIS WEEK'S PRAYERLIST.  These Prayer Requests have been made by different Residents and Staff in the Care Facilities.  1. A Lady who had a serious fall.  2. A Lady's Son who lately lost his Wife.  3. A Lady's close Friend who was lately blown out of her house because of an explosion.  She is slowly recovering.  4. A Lady who is beginning to enjoy her Care Facility.  5. A Lady who is having a hard time.  6. A young Lady who has health complications.  7. A Lady's Aunt.  8. A Lady who has painful legs.  9. A Lady whom Dr. Spence personally visited last week.  10. A Lady asks Prayer for herself, her Mother, & her Family.  11. The stomach-flu is going around in one of the Care Facilities.  Nehemiah 4.9 says: “We made our Prayer unto God.”  *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, 1 Printed Sermon was mailed to an individual in Kentucky.  2. Please pray for the Monthly Colportage that will hopefully happen one day this week.  3. 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.  For more than twenty-two 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.
