Hello, dear ones, I hope this post finds you all doing well! This morning we heard the sad news that Susan Heck’s husband, who had been fighting COVID Pneumonia, passed away. Doug Heck was a graduate of Moody and The Master’s Seminary, he served faithfully as the senior pastor for Grace Community Church of Tulsa, and just as faithfully was a husband to his wife for 46 years. Please join us in praying for Susan, their family, and their congregation. Just as we rejoice that Doug has gone to glory, we mourn with Susan and their loved ones.
The second prayer request I have comes from the recent upheaval of the Afghan government by the Taliban due to the removal of our troops from the country. While it’s true that there will be long term concerns, I ask that you would take time to pray for the believers, missionaries, and volunteers that are now at great risk. Many of them are trying to leave, others don’t have that option. We’ve already seen a return to the horrid treatment of women and children, as well as the cruelty and malice this group of terrorists are best known for. God is sovereign, and in the face of persecution and hardship the Church grows while faith deepens. Thank you for joining me in praying, my friends. As always, beloved brethren, be good Berean’s and study to show yourselves approved.
