I want to thank you for all the prayers you have offered up on my behalf over the last month as I was traveling almost every other day around the country. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
I would like to encourage you to continue to pray for me and our community of faith as we are experiencing a lot of sickness and death. In fact, I have 2 funerals schedule for the end of this week. Please continue to lift one another up in prayer.
Please continue to pray for the following people:
- Brooke Taulbee and family in the loss of her father, Ray Carpenter.
- Todd Avery and family in the loss of his dad and his step-father (all in a week’s timeframe)
- Cecil, Daphne, & Destiny Wright and family in the loss of their son, Jarred. Here are the details: Jarred Davis Wright died on Sunday, Aug. 29 just seven hours into his life. Visitation will be Wednesday, Sept. 1, from 5 to 8 p.m. at the Combs, Parsons and Collins Funeral Home, Richmond. Funeral services will be conducted at 10:30 a.m. Thursday, Sept. 2, at the funeral home, with burial following in Flatwoods Cemetery.
I know you will want to join me in expressing our sympathies and showing our kindness to the Wright family in this time of sorrow.
