Message from Keith Belcher:

"Just wanted to update everyone on Pastor Larry. The MRI report came back as expected. It is cancer on

the brain. Larry's cancer doctor was out of town today, but will be back tomorrow to go over treatment options.

Your continued prayers are appreciated. Blessings!"

"We got some tough news tonight regarding Lori’s dad, Pastor Larry Hopkins. He was in skilled nursing at Otterbein on Sunday and was feeling really weak. They transferred him to St Ritas on Sunday. He’s been really weak even in the hospital. He couldn’t even stand up on his own. One of the doctors noticed that one side of his body was weaker than the other, so today they did a Cat Scan of his brain. We just found out there is a spot on his brain. The doctor thinks it could be cancer or some blood on the brain. He thinks that it is cancer because of the size and “roundness” of the spot on the scan. They are doing a MRI tonight to verify. Larry is very down right now as well as Lori. We will not find any results of the MRI until tomorrow. It will be a long night for us."

The following is a praise from Judy Buettner:

"The Buettner family would like to give praises to God . Jenny passed her State Nursing Board test . Thank You to all for your thoughts and prayers. God is Good! All the Time! God Bless You All!"

A Message From the Pastor
DEVOTIONAL:  Do you know what the biggest obstacle to patient endurance is?  It is our mind.  I know this is the pot calling the kettle black, but I know that my mind can get very loud sometimes and it seems like the crazier my life gets, the louder my mind.  Patient endurance can be next to impossible if you have chaos going on inside of your head.  The source of a noisy mind is a lack of rest.  If you are tired, that noise gets pretty intense.  So, here is a different kind of challenge.  Make sure that you get plenty of rest and recreation.
