JULY 14th; LORD'S Day (Sunday); 2019.

THIS WEEK'S HYMN.  “Leaning On The Everlasting Arms” by Rev. Mr. Elisha Hoffman (1839-1929).  Rev. Hoffman wrote over 2,000 Gospel Songs.

THIS WEEK'S THANKSGIVING.  There were answers to Prayer this week.  1. A Lady who was going through a trial has been relieved.  2. Several who were in the Hospital are back in their Care Facilities.  3. A Lady's Son who has battled a long sickness is finally getting better.  4. GOD helped a Lady through her surgery.  5. Dr. Spence was given good Meetings last week in the Care Facilities.  Psalm 31.21 says: “Blessed be the Lord: for He hath shewed His marvellous kindness.” 

THIS WEEK'S PRAYERLIST.  These Prayer Requests have been made by different Residents and Staff in the Care Facilities.  1. Many who are presently sick with colds.  2. Two people who are still grieving due to the loss of their Spouses.  3.  A Gentleman suffering with back pain.  4. Two Ladies who are sad.  5. Those who are in the Hospital this week.  6. A Lady who is going through a trial.  7. A Gentleman with prostrate cancer.  Micah 7.18 says: “Who is a God like unto Thee?”  Luke 3.8 says: “God is able.”  *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, 288 Printed Sermons were distributed in Businesses, Hospitals, but mostly in Care Facilities located in Monongahela, Elizabeth, Jefferson Hills, West Mifflin, Allison Park, Kittanning, Belle Vernon, & New Eagle.  2. Last week, on one of his days off, Dr. Spence and his Family conducted the Monthly Colportage.  For six hours, they went 125 miles distributing 125 Sermons in 1 Hospital and 5 Care Facilities located in Youngwood, Greensburg, and Vandergrift.  It was Dr. Spence's first visit ever in Vandergrift.  What a beautiful setting!  In the Greensburg vicinity, there was severe flooding.  Roads were closed.  Some people had their yards flooded.  At least one other had a flooded house.  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.  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.
