After gathering with FBC on Sunday I started feeling a little rough. It really is probably just a cold, but it has affected my voice as well. Usually on Wednesday evenings I lead our adult Bible Study and then teach the students. I have already asked someone to cover both of those for me tonight. However, I've also been invited to preach tomorrow night at another church (First Baptist Church on Magazine St.) and I really want to preach there since it is a great testimony of diversity coming together to worship God and celebrate the New Year together. Please pray that my voice will gain strength and I'll feel well enough to celebrate Christ with my brothers and sisters.
UPDATE: Since I woke up this morning (Thursday) I have been coughing and have a very tight chest. Preaching tonight doesn't look possible right now. I'll have to make a decision soon so they can adjust accordingly. Thanks for the prayers.
