Hi all,

 

This is a wonderful day, our God has blessed us with life for another day, let's give him the glory and the praise.
The song writer wrote, "sing unto the Lord a new song, bless him praise him lift him higher", let's do this, if you woke up this morning with a song, sing, if a song has been placed in your heart, then sing, if you are going through something, and its troublesome, just sing, lift your head in your heart and raise your hands and sing, if something good has happened to you, then sing, my song today is "I love you lord today, because you care for me in such a special way", so what's your song, share and sing together,  Jesus will inhabit our praises. I love the Lord and he loves you too.

 

God bless.

 

Bro. Michael Haughton

1 I will bless the Lord at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth.

 

2 My soul shall make her boast in the Lord: the humble shall hear thereof, and be glad.

 

3 O magnify the Lord with Me, and let us exalt his name together.

 

4 I sought the Lord, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears.

 

Psalms 34:1-4

Marsha's story

Marsha Edwards is a Jamaican living in Sheffield. She is a committed Christian. Marsha has recently completed a degree at Sheffield University and was due to attend her graduation ceremony on 22 July 2011. She was also heavily involved in the Prison Ministry where she attended prisons in South Yorkshire to encourage inmates to have a positive outlook on life regardless of their current situations.

Marsha was removed from her house for immigration reasons on Wednesday 20th July by South Yorkshire Police and held prisoner at Moss Way Police Station until Thursday night when she was taken to Yarl's Wood Immigration Removal Centre, Bedfordshire.

Whilst in Yarl’s Wood Immigration Removal Centre Marsha has been a credit to Sheffield Church and an inspiration to many detainees who have come to look to her for spiritual leadership and support.  She has preached the message on a number of occasions and organises the choir and holds regular prayer meetings as requested by other detainees. She is highly respected by the detainees and some Detention centre staff.

In terms of her appeal we have won the first stage which has stopped any deportation action. We are in the process of submitting an application for her bail which means she will be back with us soon pending approval of her application for discretionary leave to remain. The discretionary leave will give her right to study and work within the UK for a specified period. At the end of this period she can apply for indefinite leave to remain in the UK.

We have all been touched by Marsha's life and ministry. She NOW! needs your financial support to regularise her stay. We have had to engage expensive specialist emigration solicitors to petition her case. Please give generously. You can pay money directly into the Marsha Appeal fund account at Halifax Bank:

Thanks for your financial support and PLEASE give generously.

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

Until my mother was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease about 4 years ago I never really gave the sickness much consideration.  But it is an awful demoralising and degrading condition that strips individuals of their dignity and self-respect.  My mother is at a stage now where you can’t identify the person she once was, that person as long since gone.  She can no longer recognise herself in the mirror or recognise her own children and grandchildren. That is one of the saddest parts of the illness.  Alzheimer’s is particularly hard for the families of the sufferer; especially those who care for loved ones on a full time basis because the care needed is relentless.  Imagine if strangers came into your house tonight and started trying to undress you, you would most defiantly fight them.  That’s what it is like for Alzheimer’s sufferers who don’t recognise their carers from one moment to the next.  From observing my mother through her sickness I have noticed that she is still fighting to keep her independence despite the fact that she can no longer manage on her own.

 

My hat goes off to carers of Alzheimer’s sufferer particularly those looking after their loved ones because they have emotional ties.  It take a special kind of person to maintain their care without getting frustrated and upset especially when you are receiving verbal and physical abuse from the sufferer. 

 

This disease is sweeping through our society, who knows when you may have to deal with it on a personal level.  Today, if you don’t understand the disease take the time to read the attached article that explains its symptoms more full. 

 

If you are a believer please remember carers across the country in your prayers, not only carers of Alzheimer’s disease sufferers, but any carer of individuals suffering from any long-term illness.  Many receive little to no support from the government in terms of physical support or financial support.  It’s up to us in our communities to support each other.   If you can, offer your support to a carer, even an hour’s break from the situation can help carers immensely.
