THIS WEEK'S HYMN.  “My Country, 'Tis Of Thee” by Rev. Dr. Samuel Smith (1808-1895).

THIS WEEK'S THANKSGIVING.  There were answers to Prayer this week.  1. A Lady's surgery went smoother than expected.  2. A Gentleman's physical weakness has left him.  3. A Lady is now feeling sweet relief from her pain.  4. A Gentleman's cancer treatments were successful.  Psalm 119.68 says: “Lord, Thou art good and doest good.”

THIS WEEK'S PRAYERLIST.  These Prayer Requests have been made by different Residents and Staff in the Care Facilities.  1. A Lady asks for the Salvation of her Family.  2. A Gentleman who lost his foot this year.  3. A Lady who will be going in for health tests on the 11th.  4. Two Ladies who keep falling.  5. A Lady's Mother lately went to the Hospital.  She could use our Prayers.  6. Those who are sick.  There are many in various Care Facilities who are sick with different colds.  7. A Lady has many requests relating to her Family.  8. A Lady who lost her Husband last week.  They were married for more than 70 years.  Dr. Spence had a good talk with her last week in her room.  9. Another Lady who has no Family.  10.

THIS WEEK'S COLPORTAGE REPORT.  1. Last week, 15 Printed Sermons were distributed in a Care Facility located in Scottdale.  2. Please pray for the Monthly Colportage that will hopefully happen one day this week.  O that Heaven will richly bless the distribution of the Printed Sermons!  3. Predestination by Jerome Zanchius, An Antidote Against Arminianism by Christopher Ness, and Reprobation by John Bunyan were all loaned to a Lady last week.  She requested reading on this subject.  4. 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.
