We are eagerly awaiting the initial findings of our insurance companies for the church property. This is a critical step for moving forward with the rebuilding of the facility.
Our family is moving back to the island on January 24. Pray for us!
Pastor Kevin is organizing volunteer teams to help with yard cleanup on Sanibel. If you need help, email [email protected].
Please continue to pray for Pastor Barry and his wife, Jessica, and their children. They continue to grieve and hurt for the loss of their oldest son, Haddon. I had the privilege of being with the Joslin’s for Haddon’s graveside service, on December 30. They are in Louisville this week for a memorial service for Haddon. Barry will be on leave through January.
