In and Around RMCC June 4, 2012


I have just learned that they have found a mass on my sister Lurette's ovary. On Friday she underwent a lot of tests of which results should be back on Monday or Tuesday.  She is in a tremendous amount of pain in her abdomen and back which is also going down into her leg. Please keep her and her husband Jim in your prayers.

Peace and Light,
Kim and Linda
Update on Alma, provided by her daughter on Jun 3, 2012: 

She is doing pretty good today has sat up in chair all day and went for a walk.  Feeling good hoping she gets better soon "she wants taco's". She sees the doctor everyday. Her surgical site is looking great and hopes to be out of hospital end of week or next week. No word on mass as of yet. Pray it's not cancer.
Keep prayers going for speedy recovery.

Love Annie (daughter)

A story is told of a man who went out each day to his backyard and uncovered his money which was buried in the ground. He would then put it back i the ground and cover it up again. To his shock one day, he dug up the ground only to discover that his money was gone! He began to cry out in dismay. His neighbor heard his cry and came to his aid right away. Upon discovering his plight, the neighbor dropped his head, walked away and said, "What's all the fuss about, you were not using the money for any good anyway. Maybe whoever took it will use it for some good!"

In Jesus' parable about money, he does not say that money is a bad thing. He is not telling us we will be happy if we are poor and sad if we are rich. Nor is telling us that it is wrong to be rich and right to be poor. Rather, he is saying that if we have money, but something that matters, do something good with your money. " up for yourselves treasure in heaven where neither moth nor rust consumes and where thieves do not break in and steal." (Matthew 6.20) Otherwise, we may wake up one day with a life full of money but empty of value.

As you know, I am heading off to Japan to teach English as an internship starting July 26 and I am really looking forward to this opportunity.  However, there were some extra expenses that I needed to pay for such as transportation fees and food and housing fees.  I was prepared to pay for these on my own until unexpected tuition statements from my college came up and I had to use my saved money to take care of that issue.  Even though I am working this summer, I am a bit panicky about coming up with $400 in order to pay for the expenses on my internship.   

I am willing to do work for members of the congregation in exchange for financial help.
