Dear Family,

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort; who comforts us in all our affliction so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.”  2Co 1:3,4

We would like to share a serious need with you for your prayer and consideration.  Most of you are acquainted with Kurt and Sheri Johnson and their situation.  Sheri was paralyzed from a car accident some years ago and since that time Kurt has been required to give almost constant care to his beautiful wife, making providing for the family difficult.  In addition to this, the expense of ongoing medical care is enormous.  They are now struggling to make house payments on the home they have lived in for 25 years.

Amid physical suffering they have continued to minister to many through teaching, friendship, encouragement and faithful prayer.  But most of all, their praise of the Father during their difficulties, coupled with their desire to press on for the glory of Christ has been a challenge to people all over the world.  They remain tender-hearted and in full surrender to the Father’s will.

Kurt and Sheri are willing to sell their home and try to find a place to rent.  However, the burden of moving would be a huge demand on their already difficult lives.  The cost of renting once they sold their house would be in line with their current house payments and the profit they would make from the home would soon be gone.  Their present home is modified to meet Sheri’s handicap, other houses would not be.  With all of this said, we ask you to pray for their situation and if possible consider a grace gift to help alleviate their need.  It would be wonderful if we could come together as the body of Christ and help them pay off their home so they could remain in it.  Can you imagine what a  great relief and blessing this would be to them?!
