This and That on a Friday

May 21, 2004

Tonight we go to the renovated Westminster Hotel here in Winona Lake for an all-community dinner and hymnsing. Grace College is sponsoring it–Don Ogden leads the music, Barb Manahan will play piano and Sharon White will play organ.

We’ve heard that perhaps about 150 people have signed up for either the dinner or the hymnsing or both. Should be a great evening, one that uses Don Ogden’s best talents and showcases such groups as the Presidents’ Quartet (Ron Manahan, John Davis, Homer Kent, and…oops…Bill Male) and others.

Jesse Deloe could use prayer for recovery from illness, as could BMH’s project manager, Ann Myers. Jesse returned from Ukraine and Moldova with sinus infection, weakness, etc. and Ann is experiencing much of the same.

We got an e-mail today that Nancy Eshleman, wife of the late Pastor Dan Eshelman, was having surgery today. Dan died nine weeks ago Monday, and for eight of those weeks Nancy has been having lung infections, headaches, vertigo, dizziness, and more.

Tests showed a one-inch tumor on the lower left side of the brain. Surgery was scheduled for this morning at 7:30 a.m. in Hagerstown, MD. The good news, she says, is that it is apparently benign and not cancer. She asks prayer for physical and emotional rest for her and the children.

While we are praying, reports have come back from Florida that Arnold Kriegbaum was recently in ICU and not doing well. He and Laura were scheduled to move to Indiana to be with their daughter, Karen, near Indianapolis in mid-July.


Jerry Jenkins and Tim LaHaye, co-authors of the fabulously popular “Left Behind” series are on the cover of this week’s Newsweek magazine. A fascinating analysis of that article, along with others, is on Christianity Today’s weblog. Jerry Jenkins and Dr. Tim LaHaye will be on ‘Deborah Norville Tonight’ this evening at 9 p.m. Eastern Time on MSNBC (unless bumped for other programming); check local listings for time in your area.
