It is very early in the morning as I lie awake praying for those in need of healing in their bodies. Several of my friends are going through severe trials as they fight for their lives. Pain seems to be everywhere. Spiritual leaders are under attack and are desperately in need of relief today. I also am experiencing pain in my body which heightens my compassion for others who are hurting. I am convinced that our Great Physician and Healer JESUS is touched and moved to compassion for those who are suffering. I know He has paid the price for our pain relief and total recovery! So I declare a pain free healed life for all of you who suffer today in the Strong and Mighty and Worthy Name of Jesus Christ!!!!

Naomi and Austin Armour
One of the many benefits of my age (66) is that I am now given the opportunity to participate in the weddings of young people who I have watched grow up.  In recent months,  I have helped to join in matrimony my niece, Brianna Nicole 
Thomason to Richard Molina-Kammeraad and Rachel Fellows to Jordan Hill and Abigail Fellows to Zackary Hammock and most recently, Austin Armour to Naomi Hereford.  All of these are people that I saw come into this world, grow up and become amazing Jesus loving adults. It is one of the greatest rewards of being a steady influence in their lives..  There have been many weddings, funerals, dedications, baptisms etc in my 45+ years of being a pastor, but nothing quite matches these decade long relationships. Now, with the coming of Rachel and Jordan's 1 years old, Dean, I am now enjoying "grand-pastor hood".  I am truly blessed!
