  1. The women in Montgomery have decided to offer a regular time for calling in to personally share their joys and their struggles as a way of encouraging each another in the daily walk of faith. The Lydians will be together on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of each month at 6:30 p.m. (Central Time). The number to call is 1-712-770-4700 and the code is 112165 #. Please plan to call for the next gatherings in January. And, pray for God’s direction and blessings on this heartfelt desire to give hope and strength to the scattered wives, mothers, and other women in the Church!

  2. Please include the new men and boys telephone outreach called “Sons of God” in your prayers. If God will use His servants to turn the families in the church back to His way, then it will require strong and Godly leadership from the men in this generation and beyond. The next meetings are planned for January. The meetings are at 6:30 p.m. in the central time zone on the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of the month. The number to call is 1-712-770-4700 and the code is 112165 #. More information about this effort to prepare and support our men as priests and kings in their families is included on the “Schedule” page.


    Note: Presenters should plan to record their message after 9:00 p.m. on the night before their scheduled day.

  5. Prayers are requested for Loren Saxton, member, North Augusta, GA, who slipped on one of steps in his home, resulting in three fractures in his right ankle. He is currently at the hospital in Augusta, GA where doctors are scheduling him for surgery, hopefully today. Thank you!

    Bill Gossett was released from the hospital a day earlier than expected. He must largely stay off of the left leg because the bone is so fragile from the deterioration caused by the severe infection. His wife, Aurora, said before he was released the doctor told them the culture matured finally and infection has been identified. Bill is to stay off of his feet and only do limited walking inside the house. A home health caregiver will be coming to administer the antibiotics (a six-week regimen) and to teach how to do it, since she will come only once a day and two doses per day are required. They are thankful for God’s blessing, and the prayers and concern of their brethren.

    The following is a letter from Gene Hogberg to Cledice Decker.
    Dear Cledice,
    Thank you for alerting me to the fact that I should circulate information regarding my wife Barbara‘s health to a wider audience since many brethren, even in other countries, came to know her on our many festival and editorial trips over the years.
    With that in mind, I need to report that Barbara suffered a fall in the bathroom, striking her head on the tile floor on September 21, 2018, just before we were scheduled to drive to the Feast of Tabernacles in Branson, Missouri, joining our son Neal’s family there. Her fall resulted in some external and internal bleeding, quickly abated, but it nevertheless seemed to accelerate a cognitive decline she had already been experiencing.
    After the ICU hospital stay, she was transported to a rehab center and finally to a memory care facility very close to our home in Sachse, Texas (just outside Dallas) where she is presently receiving excellent care. She has some uneventful to good days while others are challenging ones, but with a recent change in her medicine, her anxiety episodes are considerably fewer. On a positive note, what really brings her out are visits from family, especially our three grandchildren, and dear friends. She has not lost the ability to converse, even with good vocabulary. It’s wonderful to see her bright eyes and beautiful big smile on those occasions.
    The facility’s doctor says that Alzheimer’s disease is just that, a disease, and a progressive one with no known cause or cure. It’s not just a normal ageing process with the usual aches and pains. Because of this, I find the account in Matthew 4:23-25 very inspiring and instructive. It describes the incredible impact Jesus had in Galilee, his first ministerial venture. He “went about all Galilee” — and according to Josephus there were more than 200 cities and towns in the region — teaching in the synagogues, preaching the gospel of the kingdom, “and healing all kinds of sickness and all kinds of disease among the people.” Verses 24 and 25 show that His fame was so great that the sick, infirm and afflicted were brought to Him from many surrounding regions — “and He healed them.” Famed biblical expositor Matthew Henry wrote in his commentary: “What a powerful Physician Christ was . . .the diseases he cured . . . all without exception.” Perhaps we should substitute “is” for “was” in that quote, for we read in Hebrews 13:8 that “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.”
    Therefore I would greatly appreciate any and all prayers offered on Barbara’s behalf (her vision has been affected as well). Thank you very much in advance.
    I also welcome cards and/or emails. Our home address is 7619 Forest Ridge Trail, Sachse, TX 75048. (Sachse is pronounced “Sack-see”.) My email address is
    With love to all, far and wide,
    Gene Hogberg
