Change of Plans


We've been reminded this week how quickly life can change. Our family has spent the past couple days interceding for our dear friends back in Nebraska, grieving the loss of Alaina -- a beautiful wife, sister, daughter, in-law and friend.

This morning its been decided that we need to return home for a short visit, to be with the family and our church family during this time of grief. How thankful we are that we do not sorrow without Hope!

We'll be putting in lots of miles over the next few days, so prayers for safety in travel -- in addition to wisdom and grace to minister during this difficult time -- would be greatly appreciated!


Also, please note -- Our service in Westminster, SC has been re-scheduled to Tuesday, February 17th.



"Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
the Father of mercies and God of all comfort,
who comforts us..."
2Cor 1:3

God bless you in your travels. What a wonderful thing to be able to mourn with those who mourn and to comfort those. The Body of Christ is so special! Thank you Wissmann family for being a radiant light for Christ and seeing a need and acting upon it.

Thank you for your willingness to change your plans during this time of grief. We will pray for your family's safety in route. A special thank you to those churches/groups that may not see you this trip due to the "change in plans".

Were you members of the same church as Josh and Alaina and are these thes ame people you attended the wedding of last fall?

May God richly bless you with safe traveling both ways. And may He comfort, uphold, and guide the Beasley and Moore families...especially Josh.

God has a purpose in everything even though that is not readily apparent at times. As Rachel puts it: "...stay faithful to the Saviour, for it really won't be long". It will all be clear up there! Take it minute by minute, and know that we will be holding all of you up in prayer.

Blessings,
The Flemings
