Andrea Delorenzo was not able to have her chemo treatment last week because of low platelets. This week the doctor approved a lower dosage chemo because her platelets were still lower than they needed to be to get the full dosage. Andrea thought she would be going back to teaching in August but because of the delay of chemo sessions her Mastectomy was rescheduled for July 20 and now she won’t be healed from surgery until September and then has radiation treatment from October to November…so no teaching this fall. Please pray for Andrea’s platelet levels to be in the desired range to continue her chemo treatments and continue to pray for Andrea, Mike and the family through this challenging time.
Cards of encouragement may be sent to Andrea at 1244 Alcovy Ridge Drive, Loganville, GA 30052.

THANK YOU FROM ANGIE WADSWORTH: Dear brothers and sisters,
I want to share the good news that my father-in law Johnny Baca is at home now making significant strides in his recovery everyday. He is a walking miracle.
He is cautiously optimistic he will be able to attend Terri’s graduation next month. I praise God for that!
Thank you for your prayers and the cards. He was very encouraged so many of his brothers and sisters from our ministry thought enough to send a card to lift him up during this time. I am deeply grateful for you all.
Your sister, Angie

WOMEN’S MIDWEEK TOMORROW NIGHT!
In person and online starting at 7pm
Athens Church of Christ Facebook page
If you need childcare for tomorrow night, please RSVP at this link:
Below is the link to volunteer for our children’s ministry. We are in need of 12-15 volunteers each week. For April, May, June and July we are looking for a 1 month commitment. We are reopening all the kids classes 0-5th grade (with Covid restrictions). This is a great way to get to know some of the sweet families and children in our church.
The Young Professionals Ministry will be meeting at the church building this Thursday at 7pm to continue the study of the Fruit of the Spirit. This week’s devotional is on Goodness led by Amanda Biddlecome. We ask that everyone wears a mask!
SWAMP CAMP REGISTRATION OPENS THURSDAY AT 12AM!
Swamp registration opens up on April 15th, which translates to midnight tomorrow night.
After a much needed break we are ready to continue with the series “Carry One Another’s Burdens”. The classes will be every two weeks beginning on Saturday morning May 1 from 9:00 am to 11:00 am. There are 7 sessions. This series is a transformation of perspective. In order to carry someone’s burden we must understand it enough to have empathy for them. Our own experience, perception, and biased views can blind us from having this understanding and limit our ability to love someone that is not like us. Jesus told us to bring the nations together in his kingdom. This series will help us do that, to have closer relationships, and much more. If you want to be a part of this next series please reply to this email or contact Terry Morrow at 770-337-4455. It will be a Zoom meeting so you can attend from anywhere you have Internet. Most smart phones can access Zoom through your service provider as well.
Your fellow servants,
Terry & Cricket Morrow
