|This prayer and donation request|
was given to us at work, and I
wanted to share the plight of this
family with everyone so we can
lift them up in prayer to the Lord.
Dear Sir or Ma'am:
The Lord be with you.
Saint John writes, "In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another," I John 4:9-11
I write you to encourage you to show your love and mercy to one of our sisters in Christ Jesus, Beth Schield. She is the wife of the Rev. Kirk Schield, in Two Harbors, Minnesota.
Beth has been stricken with breast cancer on two different occassions. The Lord brought healing to Beth in 2009. However, in 2010, Beth was diagnosed with breast cancer different from the first case. She underwent surgery in 2010 to remove the cancer. She is now undergoing chemotherapy treatments. Beth and her family need the prayers of the Church. Beth is also in need of your love and mercy. How can you help Beth?
The Lutheran Church of Christ the King is hosting a silent auction, as an act of mercy, to raise some money to help the Schield family offset the rising costs of Beth's treatment and recovery.
The silent auction will take place on Saturday, April 9, 2011 at the Lutheran Chruch of Christ the King, 4219 Grand Avenue, Duluth Minnesota 55807.
You are all encouraged to come out on Saturday, April 9th, to join in the fellowship and joy of serving another child of God in the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior.
If you have something you would like to donate, please contact Mary Olafson at (218) 624-7026 or Pastor Wurst (218) 355-8546.
Always under the cross of Christ,
The Reverend John F. Wurst, Pastor
