“O LOVE THE LORD, ALL YE SAINTS! For the LORD preserves the faithful, and plentifully rewards the proud doer. Be of good courage, and HE shall strengthen your heart, all you that hope in the LORD. Psalms 31
Editor’s Message: I am excited to see our Ministry of Mercy Chronic Venous Insufficiency Brigade to the town of Jinotepe, Nicaragua coming together. The dates are February 15 to February 22. This will be a week of meeting the needs of adults with chronic venous ulcers. The procedure costs about $2,500.00 per patient in the United States. The Covidien Company and Dr. Jeffrey Brooks have offered free of charge 22 procedures to people in Nicaragua suffering from these ulcers. The team also plans to educate families and patients with chronic venous insufficiency about the disease and treatment. At the present time, we have Dr. Jeffrey Brooks, his assistant, Rosalaba Hernandez, Covidien representative, Dr. Luis Perez, myself as an RN and Carl Costas, professional photographer attending the February brigade. Anyone interested in joining us is welcome. Contact us through email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Personally, I am hoping to teach with Reina, sexual purity and abstinance with young girls using Biblical principles and the love JESUS CHRIST has to offer young girls, so that they do not have to go looking for a false love from the men and boys in their community. Infant mortality is high in the area of our clinic, due to very young girls giving birth without prenatal care. Infant mortality is almost 10 %, not to mention the many emotional, mental, social, physical and spiritual scars of these young girls, and to their babies, that do survive without a father’s love. Anyone interested in joining Reina and I on this missionary quest are welcome to attend and can contact us through the above email.
A message from the heart of JESUS: This Christmas season brings many wonderful times with family and friends, busyness, and the spending of money. Sometimes I forget the reason for the season as I get caught up in making cookies, wrapping presents, etc. I was looking at my facebook and saw this wonderful drawing from my son in law, Brett Wagner, Pastor at Redeemer Church in Grass Valley, CA. (redeemergv.com). Truly this depicts the whole of JESUS and even the Christmas season, we ought not forget. JESUS came as IMMANUEL (GOD with us), a babe to go through life as a man, and then to die as GOD, the SAVIOR who takes away the sins of mankind, and then becomes the reigning KING of all the universe, and the reigning KING in the heart of man.
