Sunday, Sep.27.

Nichole has been admitted to the hospital for some tests in connection with stomach pains. She will most likely return home during the week. Please pray that she will be kept comfortable, and that God will again provide helpers to be with her during her long hours in the hospital.

Some joyful news

Several more people have enlisted in the Lord's army by volunteering to help Nichole fight in this war against cancer. Nichole is much encouraged by this, and, I can't say for sure that it is directly related, but Nichole's heart rate has stabilized significantly. There are still needs, though. Nichole really needs help in the morning hours (8am-12pm) when breakfast is served, and all the doctors come a'pokin' and a'proddin'. The overnight shift, though difficult to do, is very necessary and helpful. From 9pm-8am is the time when Nichole gets most confused about exact hours that she needs to know, and she really needs someone there to help her keep track of things.

Thank you so much to all who have helped in the past, and to those who have yet to help. Your service to Nichole does not go unseen to God. "If you help one of mine in my name, you have helped me", says Jesus "and your reward is in Heaven."

A matter of righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit.

Psalm 103 tells us that God knows all about us, our strengths and our weaknesses, the things we can do, and the things we can't do. He knows our hearts. We are accountable only to Him, and to our own conscience. We are called to serve God with a clear conscience. (2 Tim.1:3.) We will all stand before God's judgment seat, and we need only concern ourselves with His judgment of us. "The kingdom of God is a matter of righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit, and anyone who serves Christ in this way is pleasing to God and approved by men." (Romans 14.)

"The harvest is plentiful . . . "

"The harvest is plentiful" (there are many needs), "but the workers are few" (many needs are going unmet). "Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into His harvest field." I would also add to please consider going yourself if you can.

Help Needed

Nichole is greatly encouraged when people can come and sit quietly in the room with her for several hours at a time, and even overnight. The Greene kids are also in need of some loving care and watchful eyes while they wait at home. Knowing her children are being well tended to is a great encouragement to Nichole, and also a great help to Norm, allowing him to go see his precious wife or work on projects around the house. "Let us not become weary in doing good to others, especially those of the household of faith."

To see how you can help, please e-mail Jennifer, or Patti, Anything you can do is appreciated.
