News travels fast. I’ve heard that it is being said that Richard has stopped preaching. This is not entirely true. I have had a major set back in my health situation. In December I fell on the sidewalk due to black ice, and I fell very hard. That same day, our youngest daughter here had a heart attack in the evening. I hurt my hip and back pretty badly which resulted in a lot of sleepless nights due to pain. This lasted for 8 weeks and complete wore me out. I am so exhausted that after talking with one of my church leaders, I decided to stop all preaching engagements for 3 months. And because of my age and heart problems, I will probably preach only sporadically after that. I have sort of come to the end of my rope. I will have more time for correspondence and will continue to minister in other ways. I had a meeting with my church elders and they are 100% behind my decision, which I appreciate very much! I would value your prayers as it has been a very difficult decision to make for this preacher! And please pray for a complete recovery. Thank you.
