In June of 2006 Wendy, Samuel, Cameron and myself were in Florida visiting my mom (Grace) and three brothers (Mark, Brian and Troy). After three years of taking over Calvary Santa Fe I was tired and stressed.
I took over the church June 29th 2003 after the pastor committed adultery nine months earlier destroying the church.
The pastor who took over was put through the mill (death threats, personal attacks) and had felt the calling away from the church.
The Friday before the first Sunday I taught at Calvary Santa Fe I received a phone call. The man on the other end of the phone said “if you teach this Sunday it will be your last… Watch your back”.
That was the beginning of three years of hardship and heartbreak.
At the same time Calvary Albuquerque had pastoral issues and I was on the board of directors. Stress, stress, stress!!!!
So, I was in Florida taking my first vacation in three years and started to get numbness on the right side of my face. I just shook it off and didn’t think much about it, until I got back to Santa Fe. The numbness came on throughout my whole body very strong and very painful, my vision also changed (light sensitivity) These persist even now.
For the last two years I have seen many doctors with no diagnosis. MRI’s, CT Scans, X-rays and a Spinal Tap has doctors baffled.
By God's grace I have been able to teach Wednesdays, and Sundays for the last two years.
On Sunday August 24th 2008 I was unable to continue half way through the first service.
I am now suffering from vertigo on top of all the other issues.
I am pursuing new doctors and new tests having a strong desire to get back in the pulpit.
My faith is strong in Jesus!!
I trust Him, love Him, adore Him, worship Him
He is good, He is great, Praise Him with me Brothers and Sisters
Please pray for myself and my family.
Please pray for our church.
The church is healthy and strong, healed and godly.
God has blessed Calvary Santa Fe.
Pray for Vic, Issac, Woody, and Ken who have stepped up big time. For Krista, Julianne and Chandalee who are so valuable to the ministry.
I praise God for all He has and will accomplish in our church.
That’s where you the congregation comes in.
Serve Jesus by serving one another, support the church prayerfully and financially.
Step up and live out what we have been taught about God's goodness in the midst of suffering.
Live out the gospel of Jesus Christ.
I am praying for you daily.
All For His Glory
