Working Diligently on an Album for Cancer Patients
Toward the end of 2012 one of our team members (Jack Roach) was diagnosed with having a cancerous tumor in the left side of his head. The tumor had become so big that it ate away the majority of nerves and facial tissue from the left side of his face. He started his treatment in November 2012 which consisted of 6 weeks of Radiation Therapy accompanied with Chemotherapy. Since finishing his treatment, Jack has attended follow-up visits with his doctors and received reports that the tumor shrunk during the time of treatment and has remained in a state of remission.
In January 2013 another one of our team members (Linda Roach) was diagnosed with Triple Negative Breast Cancer. Her treatment began immediately and consisted of 16 weeks of intense Chemotherapy. On July 5, 2013, Linda underwent surgery to have what was left of the mass removed. The Chemotherapy had successfully attacked the cancerous masses, leaving only a tiny mass for the surgeons to remove. A pathology test was conducted during the time of surgery and more samples from the lymph nodes were taken and sent off to a lab for a more detailed report. Two weeks after a successful surgery, we learned that the pathology report came back completely negative and none of her lymph nodes were cancerous. In other words, there was no sign of cancer left in her body. She went from Stage 3 cancer to no cancer!!!
Both Jack and Linda have a tremendous testimony to share. Especially because their road to beating this disease consisted of constantly seeking after God (studying his word, listening to praise and worship music, etc). We have decided to share their story through our next album which will also consist of encouraging praise and worship songs aimed to help cancer patients press through their treatments. Our hope and prayer is to give the album away to as many cancer patients as possible. In other words, it will be FREE! Our goal is to have this album finished in the Spring of 2014.

Praise report from Golden Living
On August 18, 2012 , a former resident of Golden Living, paid Mercy a visit. We had been missing her and had wondered what had happened to her. She had stopped by to inform us that the last time she had seen us that she had been healed. She was able to walk on her own without the aid of a cane or a wheelchair. She hugged us all and told us we was a blessing to her. But actually she blessed us. Although we miss seeing her beautiful smiling face when we visit Golden Living, we know that God is using her in a mighty way. GOD IS GOOD !!!!
Simply Worship CD released August 2012
During the Spring of 2012, God told us to purchase the equipment necessary to capture our live worship services. A month after purchasing the equipment we captured a move of God during a worship service at one of our regular nursing homes. A month later, we captured another move of God at one of our other regular nursing homes. After listening back to the recordings we decided to compile these two events into one album titled "Simply Worship". The album consists of 6 tracks, all leading the listener through a progression of worship. We pray that this album blesses you as much as it has blessed us.
Thank you for your support.
