Over the Christmas holiday I was able to fill the pulpit at Devonshire Baptist Church in Charlotte, NC, for a good preacher friend of mine, Pastor Gene Cole. The Sunday’s and Wednesday services went very well and many decisions were made toward revival. I do ask you to keep Pastor Cole in your prayers as you come before the Lord. He has been diagnosed with cancer and has already had a successful operation. The greatest need is, now that he is recovering from the operation, is for his strength during eight weeks of non-stop radiation and chemotherapy. Pastor Cole and the Doctor’s biggest concern is how his the treatments will effect his voice. Please pray that his voice will not be effected and he will, after much recuperation, be able to return to the pulpit.
