Testimony from Pastor Malone:
* Jesus is my healer as I'm contending with a congestive heart failure. Last Feb. I had many tests to determine what if or anything can be done for my disease. While in my hospital bed one afternoon, I was so weak that I thought I was on my way to heaven. The angels were on standby. I told the Lord I was ready.
* God is so loving and always concerned about you. To my surprise He asked me question: Do you want to come home or remain behind to be with your family and ministry. Since He allowed me to exercise my free will, I chose the latter decision. The next day my cardiologist told me the tests were negative, and that a new modern pacemaker and defibrillator would be inserted. God is always right as you're in line with His perfect will.
* Thomas is doing a great work in the ministry. He's taking brothers with him doing all the ship visiting. I'm
helping in different ways.
* Prayer requests: Since our ministry is in transition, we're having an important board meeting Aug. 12, and Thomas ordination is Aug. 24.
* 2 requests: Anthony Siadari, please send me your testimony about your experience in Houston and present pastoral duties.
* Marshal Bundren, please send me testimony about Turko.
May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all. (2Co. 13:14)
