THIS WEEK'S THANKSGIVING.  GOD has answered Prayer.  1. Several have returned from the Hospitals and are now back in their Care Facilities.  2. An Administrator is getting over her pneumonia.  3. Many who were suffering with the stomach-bug are returning to normal.   4. A Lady's Niece is fully recovered from her coma.  Psalm 104.28 says: “Thou openest Thine hand, they are filled with good.”

THIS WEEK'S PRAYERLIST.  These Prayer Requests have been made by different Residents and Staff in the Care Facilities.  1. A young Gentleman in one of the Care Facilities is extremely ill.  2. A Gentleman's Brother is in the Hospital.  3. A Gentleman asked for a Bible.  4. A Family is going through a singular trial.  5. Many still have the stomach-bug.  6.

A Lady is confused and thinks continually she will be appearing before a judge.  12. A Care Facility Owner is in the Hospital.  Psalm 55.22 says: “Cast thy burden upon the Lord, and He shall sustain thee.”  *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's Monthly Colportage went well.  Dr. Spence and his Family went 206 miles distributing 115 Printed Sermons in 10 Care Facilities & two Apartment Buildings located in Pittsburgh and Kittanning.  2. 1 Printed Sermon was mailed to an individual in Illinois.  3. 38 Printed Sermons were distributed in two Care Facilities located in McKeesport.  4. The January Sermons entitled “The Bad Father & The Good Son” have now been completely distributed!  We now wait for the new Printed Sermons from our Printer.  These new April Sermons will be entitled “The Son That Saw & Considered.”  THE LORD bless His Word!  5. 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.
