This fall has already delivered a full basket of blessings and challenges to the Alderman family. Please continue to keep us in your prayers.
Last month, Capitol Commission held our annual meetings in Indianapolis. What a blessing it is to gather with these brothers and sisters each year to discuss our ministry, receive training and enjoy fellowship. As you can see in the group picture below, the Indiana capitol is a beautiful building! God is bringing more solid ministers to us as we look to advance into more states. Keep praying for our expansion!
As I was leaving Indianapolis, I learned Tracy had fallen at work, had a subdural hematoma and was in the hospital. We have dealt with headaches, speech problems and seizure episodes. She has had three stints in the hospital, several visits to the emergency room and is now in inpatient therapy. Please keep praying for her health to be restored and that therapy will be effective. There has been great improvement and we’re grateful for the Lord’s protection over her. Here we are on our 26th anniversary in her hospital room (Oct. 21, 2015).
I have also had the honor of participating in several prayer services for Maryland Governor, Larry Hogan, who is battling cancer. When the Governor received his diagnosis, State Delegate Ric Metzgar determined to have a prayer service in each county in Maryland. These services have encouraged many around the state to meet for the purpose of lifting up leaders and obeying 1 Timothy 2:1-4. Since this is such a key part of our ministry, I have truly enjoyed speaking at some of these meetings and joining with so many believers throughout Maryland in prayer for our state and nation. The Governor has completed chemo treatments and the prognosis has been optimistic. Praise the Lord!
Here, I'm speaking at one of these services in Hancock, MD (Washington Co.), and you can see some of those who came to pray in Cresaptown, MD (Allegany Co.) That's Delegate Metzgar in the middle at the podium.
Again, we’re so encouraged with your partnership in our work. Thanks you for praying for us and standing with us in reaching the political community!
