We had a terrific "Gathering" this evening, hosted by Calvary United Methodist Church in Waldorf. The evening started in grand Methodist style with a complete table spread of pot luck dinner that would be the envy of any church!
After an hour and a half of great Fellowship time, we were escorted into the Calvary UMC Sanctuary, where a rag-tag "Praise Group" of singers led the members of the Southern Maryland Emmaus community in delightful praise music.
Please be in prayer for Chyanne, Jacques and Cindy Bank's granddaughter. She is in critical sickle cell crisis and was taken to St Mary's hospital last night and then transferred to Children's Hospital by helicopter a little after 7 pm. She is now receiving blood transfusions at this time as the ones last night produced little change. Please keep the whole family in prayer.
Please keep my brother Bill in your prayers as he prepares for surgery on Wednesday to remove his right leg below the knee. He has been in the hospital waging a battle to keep the leg since before Thanksgiving, but less radical surgeries have proven ineffective in stemming the infection that caused the original problem. Your prayers will help him to face this difficult time.
