Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!

Isaiah 9:6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

We hope you had a terrific Thanksgiving, and pray you and yours have a blessed CHRISTmas holiday!

The Latest News:

  • Bob finished his seven weeks (35 treatments) of radiation for his prostate cancer. He will be on two years of hormone therapy. Overall health now is good. Follow up with the urologist is in January. Bob was able to witness to people at the radiation center, and was able to provide one assurance of salvation.
