The end of the 2020 Legislative Session in Maryland obviously didn’t go as we planned and we have missed our friends in Annapolis these past few weeks. We know we’ll be together for fellowship, counseling, and Bible study again in the future, but in the meantime, we still want to bring truth, hope, and encouragement to them while we’re apart. Please pray for opportunities to stay connected with those in the capitol community.
During this time of staying at home, the Aldermans have busied ourselves with several projects. Megan came home early from her freshman year at West Virginia Wesleyan College and has just finished up her classes online. We’re proud of her hard work and flexibility (and kind of happy to have her home these last few weeks!)
Tracy has kept the house together this spring and continues to be the ultimate dialysis nurse. She is amazing with the great job she does with our home hemodialysis setup and I’m grateful for her willingness to do these treatments at home. I know many people with kidney issues don’t have this option, but I’m so glad it’s working for us. We’ve kept up with effective treatments, the blood numbers are looking great, and I’m feeling so much better! Praise the Lord!
From home, I have been asked to share insights about politicians’ challenges during the pandemic in an interview on a local talk-radio program. I also was asked by my colleague Matt Barnes in Indiana to join him on Facetime last week for his daily time of prayer on his Facebook page. And this Thursday, I will be participating in the annual Annapolis National Day of Prayer event (virtual this year), praying for the category of governmental leaders. So technology is keeping us involved and in touch!
Your faithful support and prayers are deeply needed and appreciated this year. Thank you for your interest in Capitol Commission Maryland and for going through this journey with us. Please write me back to let me know how we can pray for you!
