[1]  Focus on really staying put this week as officials say it may just get us over the hump and be praying for our world that people would be drawn to Him in this crisis !!

Many of you have been great to send your tithes to support the church through this trying time, so thank you for your love for the Lord in this !! If you haven’t as yet the addresses are:  Nittany Baptist Church at either 3939 S. Atherton St in State College, PA 16801 or to 219 Pine Tree Ave Boalsburg, PA 16827.  As we do our part to stay apart to stop the spread of the virus this month we look forward to meeting in May the good Lord willing, you are all greatly missed and prayed for !!!

[2]  Baby Asher continues to do well ! We appreciate your prayers for him and the Pecks at this crucial time in his new life !! When church resumes please do not come out to church in light of this if you are struggling at all with a cold or flu like symptoms.  That is STRONGLY advised now as a church policy in light of the recent pandemic.   Special thanks to all who participated in the virtual baby shower on Friday evening !!

[3] Keep our ailing loved ones in your prayers:  Don Rimmey, Connie Braucht, and Lois Fetzer (Sherry’s mother-in-law) who recently had hip surgery, as well as all those sick with the coronavirus in our nation and world.

[4]  Be sure to have at least two weeks of food, water & medical supplies in event you need to be quarantined but love thy neighbor and do not unnecessarily hoard and thus keep vitals from others. Keep your head and your heart during this crisis.  While its not the best week to head to the grocery store this week to conserve your supplies and help our nation consider a day or a meal or two to fast & pray !!

[5]  Pray often for our leaders especially as they deal with the pandemic.   Pray for revival in our nation and for our political as well as spiritual leaders !!!!!   
[6]  If you need anything or know someone who does do what you can to help or call the church at 466-6064.
[7]  Remember our shutins in your prayers and visit or send an occasional note !!!! 

[8] By way of encouragement and totally unfiltered from China, Missionary Justin Smith there reports an easing of the coronavirus and its effects in his region of China !!!!!!  Also Amber Myers who is in South Korea serving with her husband Ed as Missionaries told us Friday night that things are easing up there now too !!

(9)  Pray for our nation, the President’s Coronavirus Task Force  and look out for the elderly that they have adequate supplies but keep your distance from them to not jeopardize their health.  Major on washing your hands and social distancing especially to minimize transmission of the Chinese coronavirus.

(10) Don’t allow the media (man’s word) to unduly panic you as they are using this coronavirus for their evil ends, calm yourself and get into God’s Word today !!! Remember He is in control at ALL times !!!!

(11) Make it a MAJOR matter of prayer as to a permanent place for us !! ****** And the possibility of a building close by to open up, Lord willing.

(12) Pray this week especially for our world as we go through this great pandemic: for hearts to turn to God, for wisdom for our leaders, for safety and strength for our medical workers !!
