June News and Notes

by Bennie Hill

Happy Birthday Israel (May 14, 1948) David Ben-Gurion declared: “We hereby proclaim the establishment of the Jewish State of Palestine, to be called Israel.” What a milestone reached validating God is not through with Israel. Christianity could not and would not exist if no there were no Jewish people. Consider our debt to Israel:

SPECIAL REPORT FROM RETIRED MISSIONARIES

Sophia Galanis, Amarillidos 27, 15341 Athens, Greece — paschost@yahoo.gr

(Info. submitted by: Emie (Galanis) Paschos) 

By the grace of God this year is almost reaching its end. My mother is 80 years old this year. Looking back at this year we can say with certainty that God has been gracious to us. Up until March my mother Sophia was staying at a very luxurious nursing home but when an opening came up in the Christian nursing home we moved her there. Now she can hear lots of sermons and be part of a prayer group every week.

No matter though how nice the surroundings of her life are, the reality of her life is hard. Her Parkinson’s, is at the final stage, and she is unable to do most things. She can hardly see any more or walk. There are some days that she can take few small steps and some that she is totally bedridden. I visit her every other day, and it is hard to see her suffer so much.

The hardest part is that we have no idea how long she is going to be in this final stage and how much worse this situation is going to get. We know that God is sovereign in the midst of all this. We are praying for His guidance in what to do with her medical needs, and for Him to give us the wisdom on what to do. If there is a new medical advancement that would be suitable for her and would make her life a little easier and more pleasant, we pray that God will show us.

We can give praise to God because He has given us a wonderful granddaughter that takes up a lot of our time and energy and we are about to have a new grandchild in April. Also my second daughter is in her second year of music studies and doing fine.

Thank you for your continuous support and faithfulness towards my mother. It is good for her to know that even though she is in this situation she is thought of by people on the other side of the world who care and pray for her needs.
