Thanks/Prayer Requests/Support

Mollie Mostert is feeling much better. She is very thankful for your prayers.

Dear Church Family,
I cannot thank you enough for your kindness, support and prayers for me and my family during my father’s illness and his passing. 
Many have asked how to help and as you are aware, one of the challenges with this whole situation is the isolation.  My mother lives alone and is grieving. Since I can’t be with her at this time, it would be very encouraging if she received cards. She is your sister in Christ with the Boston Church. 
Her name is Maria Menjivar and her address is: 14 Fidelis Way #466, Brighton, MA 02135. 
If you feel led, my brothers are: Luis Menjivar, 12 Lantern Road, Revere, MA 02151-5618; Jorge Menjivar, 2A Grove St., Wakefield, MA 01880; Cesar Rodriguez (Your brother in Christ with Anchor Point Church), 7020 Westwind Street, Weeki Wachee, FL 34607-1431.

Dear Church Family,
Thank you all for your prayers for Marina Serpa! She rallied for a week at age 97, which was so exciting to me, but she is transitioning to hospice now so she can be more comfortable as she leaves this world. I can’t describe the struggle to want to be at her side and not outside the window. God is teaching me to have greater compassion for others dealing with death and dying.
Please pray for Trista, my daughter in law, and her baby boy (Jack) who is breach. Trista’s amniotic fluid is very low so he will have a tough time with lung development in the womb. She will be 23 weeks on Thursday. Pray fervently for Trista’s water intake to get to this baby. This is very serious for this child. Because of your prayers the placenta has moved completely off the cervix so Trista is out of danger, but a part of the placenta is not connected, hence the fluid problem.
I love you all and Our Abba is in control of everything. Sorry for the detail but we need to pray as best we can for our longings.
Thank you,
Carol Pirie

An Opportunity to Help our Overseas Churches
Our brothers and sisters in our four churches in Pakistan could use help if you are able. Because they are Christian, they get only the lowest paying jobs. They are poor by Pakistani standards yet their faith is amazing! Because of the virus, no one has been able to work for a month and rent is due. Any amount given will go a long way. Their gratitude will be huge.
Checks may be made out to: Southeast Asia Mission Society (Tax deductible donation)
Mail checks to: Mollie Mostert, 245 Holmes, Athens, GA 30606

Please send a video telling us why your mom is awesome to you! Or you can send a picture of you and your mom – adults too – not just kids! (Pssst – Dad’s…you can help your kids show their mom how awesome she is to them by filming your kids talking about why their mom is so special.) Go crazy and get creative if you want! Please send your videos and/or pictures to Adam Ghafourian by the end of the day on Wednesday, May 6th so he has time to make an epic video honoring our moms that will be shown on Mother’s Day! Adam’s email is adamghafourian@gmail.com
Please video horizontally. Make sure voices are clear and strong and lighting is good (so we can see your faces).
