Update on Allen Buchanek
Many of you have been praying with us for our dear brother, Allen Buchanek, who was injured in a fall in Serbia four months ago. Allen is doing well, though his recovery continues through much pain. Let's continue to lift up Allen and his family, and ask Jehovah-Rapha to heal him fully and provide for all his needs. You can connect with Allen on Facebook, where he posts occasional updates.
I look forward to hearing from you. Let's pray that God will help us all to minister in His power and to fulfill our ministries according to His will. Merry Christmas to you and your family, as you celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
In Christ victorious,
Romans 1:16 ~ "For I am not ashamed of the Gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God unto salvation for everyone who believes..."
