Message from Sis. Alene Stanley, The Pastor’s Wife

 

Ladies of Hopewell,

 

In October, the pink month, we observe and create awareness for a very important threat primarily to women’s health — breast cancer. Due to the pandemic, and the social distancing guidelines, we will not have the walk-a-thon.

Breast cancer is second only to lung cancer as the leading cause of cancer deaths among women in the United States. The American Cancer Society estimates that more than 270,000 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer each year, and more than 2,670 new cases of invasive breast cancer were diagnosed in men this year. Researchers say that breast cancer will affect one of every eight American women in their lifetime. However, breast cancer is very curable if caught in its early stages; an annual mammogram is highly recommended.

Now a brief message of God’s amazing love from one of my personal devotionals:

  • As He knit you together, He loved you (Psalm 139:13).
  • Before you could choose Him, He chose you (John 15:16).
  • When you had no hope, He became you hope (1 Peter 1:3).
  • When you were lost, He found you, rescued you and showed you that His mercy and justice will prevail (Luke 15).
  • When you were broken, bitter, and blaming, He made you whole and showed you the sweet taste of forgiveness (Psalm 103:8-12).
  • When you were too busy with the cares of this world, He interrupted you to show you what is eternal (Psalm 90:4).

Then, in His ultimate act of love, Jesus owned the cross and He made a way for us to be with God. Now we are empowered to know His love and bring His hope to a world desperate to know Him.

Alene Stanley
