District Superintendent Weekly Update

Men and Women of Almighty God,

Christian greetings as we launch into a new month. Please know that you are being prayed for.
I have been thinking the last day or two about II Chronicles 7:14 as we find ourselves in a time of challenge and illness. God says, “IF my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and forgive their sin and will HEAL their land.” (NIV). ___ I know that many are praying for healing, but I wonder if we are praying/asking for forgiveness? Are we searching our hearts in true humility and confession of our sins? Are we being humbled or are we just a people that grumble? I want to ask your opinion about something. Would you support a Sunday that is designated as a Day of Humiliation, Fasting, and Prayer? I envision local churches using their entire worship time for praying and crying out to God. Pastors, their spouse’s, support staff, etc. live streaming the prayer time with their people and viewers. Jesus told us that His house is to be called “a house of prayer”. We have a formula for HEALING our land; will we use it? If we as a team will lean into this day together I will set the date. I look forward to hearing from you.

Well, the last couple weeks have been different for sure. You certainly know all about that. With the direction from the VA governor I have been working from home; I go to the office only if I need to pretty much. Becky is teaching piano via zoom, face time, etc. downstairs and I work from upstairs. We are even keeping our social distance. LOL Thank the Lord for good health so far. 

Last evening I hosted a DBA finance meeting and will chair a DBA zoom meeting tomorrow night. We are having to make decisions like many others are having to make. I will be following up with senior pastors most likely on Friday to announce some possible changes. With the help of Almighty God we are going to get through this crisis, but will make some needed adjustments as we move through it. Let’s “lift up our eyes from where our help comes from”; we need not despair because HE LIVES!!! God reigns, He rules!!!! 

I truly thank you for all that you’re doing in this time. I appreciate how  teammates are connecting through zoom and encouraging one another. The West VA pastors are meeting weekly under the leadership of Dr. Brady, our liaison in the western part of the region. Pastor Paul Gorsline (Newport News) is attempting to get the Eastern VA team together for encouragement, prayer, and support. In this time we can be better together as I’ve often heard Pastor Jess Holmes say. Let’s stay connected because we are a connectional church. 

I want to share with you for info and prayer purposes that we’ve had the first report of Covid-19 in our district; at least it’s the first that I’ve heard. A lady in one of our church’s has tested positive and has been very ill of course. The good news is she seems to be on a path of recovery for which we rejoice. Would you pray for Kathy? Also, Rev. & Mrs. David Henry have an adult son in Indiana that is critically, critically ill. Teammates, the Henry’s need a divine miracle. Would you pray for the Henry’s son and his large family? My heart goes out to all involved. It’s time to pray, Team, it’s time to pray! 

Please let us know if and how we can help you. I can’t do everything, but I know a Man who can!! PRAISE HIS NAME!!!!

Pastor Greg
