This is not an easy message for me to send. Rick and I and Travis and Eric joined Tintern 30 years ago now. We love our church family very much. Some new members have come and some have left. And Now it's our turn to plant our feet with a new church family. This has been a long journey and a hard decision but we have decided to practice our faith in our own Welland community. I went to a Ladies Bible Class last Wednesday and met some really nice Christian woman. It was nice not to drive so far in the dark. It was very close to my home and Melissa Gibson also attends services with these ladies. It is a BIC church. We will be attending services soon at the Main Street location. They are in the process of another location, but are waiting for the permit. Pray for us. I hope we can still visit Tintern off and on. I owe all of you many thanks for all your service and fellowship and teachings and Noel's preaching and all the kindness and examples of God's children at work at Tintern. Also today at 3: 50 pm Rick's Dad passed away. His name was Robert Dean West. He was also my mother's husband for many years. {Long story}. My mother and I and Rick's sister, Nancy were present for his last breath. It was very difficult to witness of course. Good news is we have just finished getting my mother in her brand new little house built right on my sister's property in Port Colborne. Her birthday was April 24th. She is 84 years old now. Please forgive for me not giving you the news of our decision to go to church in Welland in person. I would not be able to. I am very emotional and stressed out these days. More good news....Rick is now working at "Vision Greens". They make lettuce of all kinds for grocery stores. It's only a 10 minute drive from our house. Eric soon will be joining him there. They have hired Eric as well. I love you church. I will keep you in my prayers. Keep growing and maturing in the Lord. Love with all my heart, your sister in Christ, Debralynn West. Rick sends his love as well.

Dear Lord, Thank You for the people who lead our church. You have led them to serve You in this way, at this moment. I pray that they will be strengthened, encouraged, and blessed today. You know what their specific needs are. I pray that they will see Your provision and give You the glory. I pray that You will help them stay true to what You have called them to do. Give them wisdom as they serve the body of Christ today. May You draw them closer to You each day, and help them to serve You out of the spiritual strength that You give them today. In Christ Jesus’ Name, Amen (https://churchministryhelp.com/prayer-for-church-leaders/)

Last Sunday I was at Wellspring Church in Welland. One of their encouragements was to pray for the pastors of the church, so my first thought was yes! We need to pray for Noel and Megan. So here's one prayer I came across that I thought I would share that we could pray over Noel and Megan: Today I pray for the fruits of the spirit in Noel and Megan’s life—that love, joy, peace, and patience will guide; that kindness and goodness will be companions; that faithfulness will be the motto, and that gentleness and self-control will be evident to all. Help Noel and Megan to see each person today through Your eyes. And help them to see You in Noel and Megan. I love you, Lord, and I thank you for Noel and Megan, in Jesus’ name.

Dear God, We cry out to you on behalf of the people seriously affected by the conflict in Gaza and Israel. Our hearts break at the devastation and suffering that we see, and we know it breaks yours, too. We ask that you would stretch out your mighty hand to bring an end to this war. We cry out for people who have been injured or traumatised, who have lost loved ones or their homes. Please provide everything they need and be their comfort, their hope, their healer, and their safe refuge. We pray for your peace to reign. We look to you as our Saviour and the hope of the world. Amen. (https://www.tearfund.org/stories/2023/10/how-to-pray-for-gaza-and-israel#:~:text=Dear%20God%2C,an%20end%20to%20this%20war.)
