From Mercy's Well Newsletter of March 7, 2013:
We hope each of you had a great weekend to welcome the month of March! We know a lot of our friends and fans in the Midwest and the Northeast have been getting hammered with these fierce winter storms and are ready for Spring to arrive - it will be here soon. We will keep you in our prayers.
Our weekend in VA and NC was one that we will not soon forget! It started on Saturday night at The Church of God at Red Hill located in Boones Mill, VA. Following a delicious chili supper, we presented our service for Bro. Scott and those who had come out to support us. All three of us were battling sickness, but we made it through!
Sunday morning brought us to Concord UMC in Coleridge, NC. Bro. Steve Jones had invited us to join some of the men of their community as they gathered for their monthly Men's Prayer Breakfast. This time of food and fellowship was so special, and is something that is needed in communities all across this country! We need men in the church to stand up, join together, and make a difference in our world! We always enjoy our time with the folks at Concord, and Friend & Family Day is a great opportunity for us to fellowship with dear friends - and eat, again!
Sunday night is where things got interesting. As the afternoon wore on, Brad (who has been diagnosed with pneumonia), started feeling pretty bad. By the time we got to our date Sunday night, he was hardly able to sit up without feeling nauseous. We were able to do a soundcheck, and were prepared to hope for the best. We were NOT prepared for what happened next. Just before the service began, Brad took a turn for the worse and had to leave the sanctuary. For the first time in our 12-yr existence, Mercy's Well was a duo. Greg and I were able to finish the program - by God's grace - and survived the evening. Thanks to the folks at Totally Committed Ministries for bearing with us - you were great!
Please remember us in your prayers. Brad is still recovering and Greg and I are trying to stay healthy. We are looking forward to our trip to Florida this weekend - bring on the warm weather!
Have a blessed weekend, everyone!
Brad, Greg & Kyle
