Roger asked that this message be sent out to the class –

My brother Robert was taken to the ICU in Oklahoma City yesterday with severe bleeding in his GI tract. As of this point, they haven’t located the source, but they are continuing to look today. He was pretty frail before this started, so any procedures will be rough on him. We can use thoughts and prayers at this time.

Dee Dueck is doing well

Some of you may have read in this week’s WORD that Dee Dueck was in the hospital. She is OK and will be at our sign in table tomorrow. She had an experience of fainting and was admitted to the hospital for observation. It appears to be related to high blood pressure and she is taking following Doctor’s orders, etc. to address any issues. I expect many of you and including me have experienced the random effects when our blood pressure rises and we are often not aware it is happening nor why it is happening.

Dee and I agreed that I should let you know to avoid a log jam at the sign in table tomorrow by you asking Dee about her experience. As you know, we are having high attendance and guests coming to hear Dr. Bigg’s teachings. I appreciate everyone getting to a seat this Sunday before Richard Wansley provides the prayer at 9:45 a.m.

Thanks for all you do for Maranatha and the church,

Message from Jim Griffin


I just received great news. I will be in the new cancer drug study at Moffitt in Tampa. I will be one of 6 here and one of 200 nationally. Options were running out for me so this was indeed good news. I don’t know the routine yet but expect to be tied to Moffitt for a few weeks. Looking forward to seeing all of you soon.

I want to thank everyone for praying for me. It worked — again, can’t beat those prayers..

Best regards

Jim Griffin

Dan Blevins’ Mother


Please keep my mother (Joanie) in your thoughts this week. We had to take her to St. Johns ER on Thursday with severe hip pain and trouble swallowing/eating.
She has been admitted to the hospital and is still very uncomfortable. We hope to know on Monday what the plan of action is for treatment.

Thank you,
Dan B.
