A Living Testimony
by Marion and Elaine
Some time ago I wrote and asked you all for prayer concerning our ministry. I realize that
your prayers were sent up because God has truly blessed us since we started this ministry.
Before I endeavor to spell out the blessings we have received I should give you a little
insight about us.
Elaine (my wife) and I have been married 28 wonderful years. We have two grown sons, our
eldest is married and our youngest recently graduated from college. I am an RN working in
critical care and ER. Elaine is an upholsterer and holds a degree in business management.
Approximately 2 1/2 years ago our lives took a dramatic change. Elaine and I started
attending the same church for the first time since we had been married. I attended
Catholic Church and she a Baptist previously. To describe the circumstances that lead to
this is too long a story to get into at this point. For the first time in my life I felt
fulfilled and really a part of something wonderful.
Our marriage was blooming, our income was sky rocketing. We opened our own business -- a
craft store and upholstery shop. Everything was going great in our lives. God was really
blessing us. One night I had a dream that changed me even more. When I woke up in a cold
sweat Elaine thought I might have suffered a flashback (Military). I told her I wasn't
sure what had happened but it was something to do with God. A few days later I was
immersed in conversation with our Pastor deliberating over some of the concerns of our
church. One of the concerns was his upcoming vacation and who he should get to fill the
pulpit during his absence. Suddenly I knew that God had opened the door for me and my
dream had been explained. The next day I got an advertisement for a seminary school. I
checked it out and enrolled a few weeks later. Soon after this Elaine and I felt we needed
to begin working together in a ministry of some sort. A friend had asked if I would
accompany him during a gospel sing at the nursing homes in our town. (guitar) During these
visits I was led to understand the need of someone to minister to this population on
Sundays. That is where cyber partners got involved. We came to y'all and asked for prayer.
Since that time we have purchased our own sound system. Elaine discovered a talent for
singing and we have been blessed many times over with the love and affection of the
residents. Truly our prayers have been answered and your prayers have been granted and
multiplied with results from our most glorious and wonderful God.
Thank you all so much and please keep us in your prayers as we feel that our work is just
beginning. God is so good and we want to serve him in the capacity that he chooses for us.
God Bless you all,
Marion & Elaine
