Prayer for King Family

Yesterday Debra and I traveled to Columbia, Tennessee (where we serve 8 years as senior pastor) to visit the long-time clerk and treasurer, Sister Earlene King. While she has been quite ill for some time, she is now more critical than any time that I have been aware of. This coming Sunday will be her 70th birthday and she has served that local church for almost 40 years. She is a faithful, loving, kind woman who loves the Lord and has always been very supportive of her pastor.

Her husband, Billy Ray King was ordained as a deacon while I was the pastor there and has served the church faithfully as well...in fact, he served long before the official appointment as a deacon. Some of you may remember that I singled them out at the 2009 Tennessee State Convention during the ordination sermon.

The local pastor, Charles Thornburg was there yesterday and has been a constant presence during this difficult time in their life...I know they appreciate that, and I know that he is modeling what a good pastor should be.

I know that a lot of you read this blog on a daily basis and I am writing today to ask you to pray for them and the rest of their family. I am thankful that I can count on you at a special time like this, and I thank you in advance for praying for my dear friends.

Dear Brother,
I am sending you a synopsis of my ministry, and my desire to work in evangelism in your States.
I preached my first message at 12 years old.

I began weekend revivals at 14 and spent my 14th summer in revivals.  My wife and I were National Evangelists working with Elwood Matthews.  I have many years of experience in Revivals.

I have retired from Kentucky state government and wish to evangelize. I wish to do so in your state/territory.
I believe my calling assignment from our Lord is to be a Demonstrator. I truly believe when I preach there will be a d…
