This afternoon we will be heading back to the doctor for one more test for Erin. She is having a more in depth MRI on her brain and hopefully after this the doctor will be able to totally rule out M.S. We thank you for your faithful prayers over the past couple of months and ask you to join us again today in prayer that all will go well. We serve the Great Physician and Healer and we know Erin is totally in His care. Pray for her health, calm nerves, and peace no matter what the outcome. Thank you so much for your faithfulness!
At the Rec Center we have been battling keeping our facility warm or cool depending on the temperature outside, due to our heating and air units being down. Last week we were blessed to have two more gas units donated to help bring down our heating costs. Also, the week before our first new big heat and air unit arrived. That being said, here comes our prayer request. In the next couple of weeks we need to raise a little over $4,000 to pay the unit off. We desperately need this unit for our heat and for our air in the very hot summer time. When it’s too hot or too cold in our facility people don’t want to stay. If there are no people it’s hard to pay the bills and even more importantly hard to share Jesus if there is no one to share with.
So how can you help??? First of all, as always please pray for us. Heat and air are greatly needed and we know God will provide the finances, so pray people will be generous. Secondly, if you are interested in helping with this need, please consider a finical donation. All donations can be sent to:
KMM, PO Box 588, Beattyville, KY 41311
Just include in the memo that your donation is for the Lee County Recreational Center heat and air units.
Lastly, one way that you can help is if you live in the area or are visiting come out to the Rec Center and join us for a meal, to work out, or to have a fun night bowling!
Thank you so much for your continued prayers and support!
I hope this post finds you staying warm and dry. Here in Beattyville between precipitation and cold temperatures it has been one nasty December weather wise. This past weekend at the Rec Center we were going to have an indoor yard sale to help raise funds for the Rec Center. Unfortunately, the weather had been rotten and was predicted to be really bad about the time of the sale we had to reschedule for Saturday, December 21st.
This week is a busy week for our family. On Saturday the Lee County Rec Center is hosting a breakfast with Santa. During this time I (Andy) will be reading the Christmas story and sharing the Good News of Christ’s birth with all who attend. We are expecting around 50 people to attend this event. Immediately after this event, we have a high school bowling match for our Lee County High School Bowling Team at the Rec Center. I will be helping as an assistant coach and also with whatever needs may arise during the match. Once all that raps ups, our family will be hosting our annual Fellowship of Christian Athletes Christmas party at our house. All of our middle and high school students are invited out to our home to enjoy games, good food, and lots of fun. When Erin and I, purchased our current home we prayed and asked God to give us opportunities to open our home to our local youth. We are excited to be able to be a witness to them in our house and hopefully show some that come from broken homes love that they need to be shown.
On Sunday evening our family is gearing up for a big first. Maeven will be participating in her first ever Christmas play! She is practicing and is really excited for her role as a cow in the stable where Jesus was born. We can’t help but smile as we remember how just a year ago she was scared to death of cows, but now is proudly practicing her mooing. Judah is still to young to participate, but he loves practicing his cow sounds as well!
Erin is doing ok with her health diagnosis, but has some pretty tough days. Since we have met our insurance deductible for the year and to erase any worries about a scar found on Erin’s brain during her last MRI we have decided to go and get a better contrasted MRI of her head next week. We pray that this MRI will lead to a total conclusion that all of Erin’s symptoms are Chronic Fatigue and Fibromyalgia related and not some more serious brain issues. The relief of finding out that would be a tremendous weight off of our shoulders, so please be praying.
As always, we thank you for your continued support and prayers. We hope that you are having a great Christmas season and are truly enjoying celebrating the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!
The month of December is full of various events and outreaches for us at the Lee County Recreational Center. We are doing several things to help raise funds for the Rec Center and many others to share the love of Christ with our community. Erin and I wanted to share with you several upcoming things that you can join us in prayer for. I (Andy) will be sharing about the first Christmas at several of these events. Please pray that myself and other speakers will effectively communicate the Gospel to our community!
Yesterday afternoon, we went back to Erin’s neurologist to find out the results of her MRI and hopefully get some answers as to what has been going on with her body these past few months. After some discussion the doctor told us his “working” diagnosis is that she has fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, and a herniated disc in her neck. The good news is that none of this diagnosis is life threatening. The bad news is that the two major issues really aren’t curable, but they are treatable. For the next three months Erin will be trying a routine of meds and physical therapy to help ease her symptoms. If all goes well we will go back to the neurologist in three months and continue on the same track. If all does not go well, there may be some more detailed MRI’s in the future. We are thankful to finally have some answers and very thankful for your continued prayers through this difficult time. Please keep praying for Erin as this looks to be a long tough road ahead.
