16 Oct Dr. Paul Pritchard Newsletter Jul – Sep 2018
Dear Pastors and Church Family,
July was kicked off with three wonderful weeks of camp. Preaching everyday and ministering to the kids resulted in a number of souls being saved and many eternal decisions that will direct the course of some young lives.
In the AM hours on August 6th, I was sent by ambulance to the hospital with severe chest pain. We were later told that I had suffered a heart attack, and that I would need to stay in the hospital for a few days because there were still some questions concerning my health. The same week ensued an open gallbladder surgery that turned into three weeks of agony. A small nick of the bile duct went undetected and caused me to go septic. For about a month now I have been still struggling to regain my strength. I thank God for your many prayers and calls that have served as great encouragement to both my wife and me. Amazingly, through all these circumstances and trials, we’ve learned some things, lost some things, but most importantly, I’ve been lingering at His feet and waiting on His presence to renew and refresh us with His strength.
Mentoring Men for Mission
The fall classes have also begun for our MMM training program. John and Lore Dan, servants in Romania, have already been a tremendous blessing to us and a great addition to the Preach Team. Pray as we visit with two new families in the upcoming weeks.
For two years we’ve put our best effort forward on remolding the property God gave us. Progress, progress, progress. God is a God of advancement! We praise Him for every victory, every donation, every volunteer. Continue to pray as we seek the funds to finish this 60,000 square foot project. Our most urgent needs are no news to God. Please help us further the cause and kingdom of God.
For God’s Global Glory
Dr. Paul E. Pritchard Jr.
