Eye Surgery Needed

Edward N. Quansah

I spoke to bro. Quansah this past week. An Australian doctor working at the Eye Hospital in Agogo is the one who diagnosed that he had a retinal tumor andwill be performing the surgery. They have said the surgery will take less than an hour and have assured Edward that they can help him. Following the surgery they will also provide any needed medications and follow-up visits
for the next few years.

We would like to thank everyone who contributed to help bro. Quansah have this surgery. We hope to be able to wire the funds in the next few days. The doctors said they could schedule the surgery almost immediately once the payment is made. Please continue to remember bro. Quansah in your prayers..

Ted Wheeler


"If it falls your lot to be a street sweeper,
sweep streets like Michelangelo painted pictures,
like Shakespeare wrote poetry,
like Beethoven composed music;

sweep streets so well that all the host of Heaven and Earth will have to pause and say,
Here lived a great sweeper, who swept his job well."

- Martin Luther King, Jr. -


Your Cross

Whatever your cross,
Whatever your pain,
There will always be sunshine
After the rain.

Perhaps you may stumble,
Perhaps even fall,
But God always rescues His children
Out of it all.
