Psalm 23 Ministries

Ya'll know that I'm an Internet junkie. I think it's the best thing since sliced bread. I check out a lot of sites. I like some, and I don't like others. That's the way the cookie crumbles. I would like to pass on a link to all of my bloggy buddies and silent readers. It's a great ministry and mission with a kinda twist from a lot of missions.

When the hubs was in school working on his BA in Divinity he met another preacher by the name of Tom Shuford. Bro. Tom has a great life story, and more importantly has a lot of love for the Lord. His ministry, and I guess maybe you could call it his mission, is "Psalm 23 Ministries". Bro. Tom is a missionary to those with a terminal illness, and their families. At one point, quite a few years ago, Bro. Tom was diagnosed with Leukemia and was given a very grave prognosis. But the Lord chose to spare Bro. Tom and let him continue his journey here on this side.

Even though I knew of "Psalm 23 Ministries" I would have never thought I would have a need for such a ministry. However, God had a different plan for my life than I did. Oy, I'm glad He does, I'd be in a heap if He wasn't in charge of things. After learning that my daughter will most likely die before she turns 1, I again looked into Bro. Tom's ministry.

"Psalm 23 Ministries is physically located in Valdese, NC, but they have a website that can reach anywhere the Internet reaches. Please check them out. Also, keep this ministry in your prayers. Pray that God would use them to spread the joy of Christ to people at a time when their joy is limited.

I love this ministry because Brother Tom can go in and talk to people because he has been through the same thing. That's more of an impact.
