The letter this week is a two part letter so please make sure you read both sections.

I have prayed diligently the last few days about what to do for Myra, Renae and their families. I think most people are aware that Renae has a cancerous tumor in her lung that is pushing against her esophagus. They have done extensive research and the best treatment option is at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville, Tennessee. The issue that has arisen is that at the moment the insurance that they have is not accepted at this hospital. They will be receiving treatment on a cash only basis to the tune of a hundred thousand dollars.

There are lots of questions about why and is there not something else that could be done. Throughout my ministry I have watched mothers do superhuman things when it involves their children. Myra would be furious with me for even sending this letter. I want to give each of you the opportunity to  give towards a love offering that will do nothing more than to  help defray some of the costs. You will have the white envelope and we will take this offering this Sunday and the next Sunday. They go to Knoxville a week from Monday.

We have handled accommodations for  them and I am working on making sure a large portion of meals are being taken care of.  I am at this point extending an opportunity for  you to think back in your box of memories and then ponder what Myra means to you and simply make a gift and let her and her family know that they are loved. More than anything I hope each of you will make this a huge matter of prayer.

On to the next part of this letter. This coming Sunday is going to be a great day of fun and festivities. We are having a wonderful church wide lunch after the morning service. All donations after the meal is paid for  are going to go toward this upcoming love offering. There are going to be games and a silent auction. Since we have now moved into the 21st  century we have the ability to take cash, checks, debit cards and credit cards. I hope that you will plan to be here in your colorful clothes, ready to laugh, have a great meal and then just plain have a wonderful time. I'm excited. I love it when we have church wide events.

Reminders for you to think about and to not forget. Trunk or Treat is Wednesday night October 25th . I hope you will plan to come have dinner even if you are too old to trunk or treat.  Anyone that wants is welcome to  sit on the tailgate with me.

We will be doing an offering during Advent to help Wenonah High School get band uniforms. They have been invited to march in a parade and cannot do so unless they have uniforms. We are going to help them during Advent.

Don't forget your shoeboxes.  Dedication Sunday is November 19th. Operation Christmas Child

See you Sunday!!
