Christmas Greetings from The Southerlands:
by Webmaster on 12/22/15
I want to take this opportunity to wish all of our Pilgrim family a wonderful Christmas time celebration. I have so many precious memories about Christmas time over the years. Sis. Southerland and I have been so blessed to have so many friends who remember salutations and greetings during this time.
The story of Jesus' birth and the events that surround it means more today than ever before. With all the terror fears, confusion and criminal activities, we need to remember that one day every knee shall bow and every tongue shall confess that Christ is Lord of all.
Some of those we love have slipped away from us thru death's door, but they are not grieving. They are a part of that great cloud of witnesses who are cheering us onward to the finish line.
Would you please remember to pray for three of our churches who are without pastors. We are helping our Indianapolis, PHC. Pray for the folks at Corydon, Indiana. Dr. Craig Dahler is ministering to them the next two months. I'm hearing good reports of God's visitation during their most recent services. Continue to join us in prayer for our dear friends the Union Ridge PHC near McArthur, Ohio.
We deeply appreciate Bro. and Sis. David Peters helping to keep things moving forward there. If you have any names to share with us please feel free to contact us.
This month is filled with activities. It was 53 years ago on December 23rd that Rev. J Wesley Adcock traveled to Maysville, KY to marry Patsy and I. What an honor. What a wonderful helpmate the Lord has given us. Allen and Rachel's second daughter received her Master's degree from Ball State University last Saturday morning. Their third daughter is getting married next Sunday afternoon in Greenfield, IN.
Patsy and I cannot put into proper words how much you all have meant to us. God bless you individually and collectively.
James & Patsy Southerland
