St. John's Group Email update on Robyn McNew's brother Ken Meyer

What a miracle!!!

Ken is now at St. John's Mercy Rehab Hospital at Hwy 40 and Timberlake Manor Pkwy (this is not part of the main hospital at 270 and 40).


He has a rigorous therapy schedule during the day (Mon-Sat) with Physical, Occupational and Speech Therapy. He is doing wonderfully! Still a little confused, some vision problems, working on dexterity in hands and standing/walking, but when you talk to him, you can hardly believe he is where he is today after everything that's happened.





St. John's Group Email FW: House For Sale

From your St. John's Board of Evangelism & Outreach!!!
While most of you have no trouble sharing your faith in Jesus Christ with others, many of you still are not comfortable doing so. is a really "easy" way to do that for you ALL - BOLD OR MEEK!  This week-end is a great opportunity to learn more about sharing your faith.  Come meet and "join" the Ongoing Ambassdors For Christ (OAFC) that will be with us at St. John's.  Even 30 minutes of your entire week-end with one of these awesome young folks will change your life.
Today is another opportunity to share your faith in Christ with others.  Who you talk to about Him TODAY may be the last time the other person has to know Christ as their savior.  Or...TODAY may be the last time YOU have to tell someone about Him before you meet Him face to face! 
I'm sure there must have been some kind of closing prayer or benediction of some sort at the high school graduation in Joplin last week.  And, before many of those in attendance (graduates and/or family and friends) ever got back to their earthly homes, they went "home" to the Lord. 
MAKE TODAY COUNT & God's peace to you as you live for Him!
Matthew 28:18-20    -    Ecclesiates 9:12
