Thank you for your prayers and continued support for Amber and the Turnham family. Rick and Deanna are getting ready to leave tomorrow morning heading to their new home in Texas along with Amber's twin boys. Please pray for them.
The court appearance was difficult. At best Amber may be able to leave jail as early as October of this year or it could be as late as April of 2009. Remember to pray for Amber that she will understand and that God would lift her heart and attitude. Since her folks will be in Texas, we need to step up our support for Amber. Please continue to write her and encourage her at this address:
Roanoke City Jail, Atten. Amber McDaniel, 324 Campbell Ave., Roanoke, VA 24016
Sunday morning Deanna shared with us, her church family, what she feels about us and thanked everyone for their prayers and support. They have been precious friends and with many of us for 4 years. Rick and Deanna as well as those precious two little boys have stolen our hearts. I ask that you pray for their move, for them to find a great new church family and for them to be put back together with their daughter, Amber, as soon as possible. You can write the Turnhams at this address:
Rick and Deanna Turnham, 1093 Burt Dr, Nacogdoches TX 75965
They will be missed terribly by this church family as Rick and Deanna are very loved here, and so is Amber. It is tough when we have to leave our family, even church family. Once again, God has really blessed our lives, and God intends for us to bless and encourage people all along the way. Keep on doing just that as you pray for Amber, Rick and Deanna and the boys, TyShawn & Demarion.
God is good....all the time!
Pastor Michael (James 1:5)
