SEPTEMBER 15th; LORD'S Day (Sunday); 2019. 

THIS WEEK'S PSALM.  “Unto The Hills” (Psalm 121) by Mr. John Douglas Sutherland Campbell (1845-1914).  Mr. Campbell wrote these words in 1877. 

THIS WEEK'S THANKSGIVING.  There were answers to Prayer this week.  1. A Lady who has had a singular trial had a good day last week.  2. A Lady's Son-in-law's back has remarkably improved.  3. Dates have been set up with a new Care Facility for Dr. Spence to begin services.  Romans 2.4 says: “The Riches of His Goodness.”

THIS WEEK'S PRAYERLIST.  These Prayer Requests have been made by different Residents and Staff in the Care Facilities.  1. A Lady passed away last week in one of the Care Facilities.  Several of her Friends miss her.  We will miss her in the Church Services.  She constantly attended.  Please remember her Family in Prayer.  2. Those in the Hospital.  3. Many who are sick with colds.  In one Care Facility in particular, there are many sick.  4. A Grandmother asks Prayer for her very young Granddaughter who is not well.  5. Three Residents who have very specific and personal Prayer requests.  6. A Gentleman and his Wife need Prayer.  7. Two Ladies who are often sad.  8. A Lady who lost some money.  9. Those who are struggling with serious health problems.  10. Those who are often in pain.  11. A Gentleman whose Son asked Dr. Spence to do what he can to make sure his Father has come to JESUS.  Psalm 20.1 says: “The Lord hear thee in the day of trouble.”  *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, on one of his days off, Dr. Spence and his Family conducted the Monthly Colportage.  They went 148 miles distributing 126 Printed Sermons in 9 Care Facilities located in Bridgeville, Aliquippa, and Ambridge.  It was a good day.  The hours flew.  O that some spiritual good will come from it!  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 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.
