Ponderous Thoughts

“The fact is that to do anything in the world worth doing, we must not stand back shivering and thinking of the danger, but jump in and scramble through as well as we can.” --Robert Cushing

On March 12, we will have the opportunity to meet a missionary family we have been supporting. Lynn and Sharon Fogleman are medical missionaries serving in the Red Bird Missionary Conference, in the Appalachian mountains in southern Kentucky. They are assigned to the Red Bird Clinic, which each year provides medical care to thousands of people who would not otherwise be able to afford it.
Eric reminded us yesterday in his sermon of how the US is far wealthier than most other people in the world, but the Red Bird Conference may be an area where the exception proves the rule, where there is great poverty and a lack of public services available. Lynn and Sharon are both doctors working in this area of tremendous need.
In March, they will be on furlough and traveling to some of the churches that have supported them—including Ann Street. On Monday, March 12, at 5:30 pm we will be hosting the Foglemans at a covered dish meal. We will eat together and they will share stories of their work in Kentucky. Please mark your calendars and come hear about this tremendous need and how Ann Street is working to make a difference through the Fogleman family.

  1. Being from southern Kentucky and familiar with the Red Bird Clinic, I would like to thank the missionaries for their selfless work.
