King's Meadow Update
Several bits of news we thought you might be interested in:
Dr. Grant had his MRI yesterday morning. Results are due today, but it is not likely that surgery will be able to be scheduled until late next week due to the holiday week. He is disappointed because he so desperately wants to get the rehab of his knee underway so that he can resume his training for a marathon he wants to run in April.
For the first time, Dr. Grant got a mention in the nationally syndicated Dear Abby advice column. Surprise, surprise: the subject was Planned Parenthood!
Dr. Grant has been invited to speak to the Christian Officers' Fellowship following the Army-Navy game in Philadelphia on December 6. Do pray that his surgery can be scheduled for the week after the game and not the week before it. Needless to say, he relishes this opportunity to speak to the men and women who serve our nation so well.
An agreement was reached with Cumberland House today to produce new editions of The Patriot's Handbook and The Christian Almanac. The books will probably be scheduled for release this next spring.
This January, Dr. and Mrs. Grant will be in Peru to lead a retreat for our Mission to the World missionaries there. Though we decided not to send out a solicitation letter since it follows so quick on the heels of the Iraq trip, several of you have expressed a desire to help with the expenses of this trip. If the Lord has prompted you to help support this trip financially, you can send donations to the King's Meadow office. The cost of the two week mission should be just about $3000. Since King's Meadow is committed to never bury our friends and supporters with requests, your offerings are always profoundly appreciated because we know they are offered freely and generously.
Audio files of the Bible studies that Dr. Grant has been teaching each week here in Franklin are posted to the Micah Mandate website. The site recorded an astonishing 10,000 downloads of the series on Revelation during the month of November alone--according to the statistics from our hosting service! Hard to believe, isn't it? You can help us keep this free service available with your year-end gifts as well.
