IvaLou Chesnut

IVALOU CHESNUT A few months ago Pastor Michael asked us to e-mail him to let him know how God was working in our life that week.  Here is IvaLou’s story…. I have always been involved in ministry since I came to know Christ as my Savior.  This came to a halt when COVID shut everything down.  Lately, I had been praying for a ministry, (Ps 91 says: even in old age they will produce fruit) One morning, I was praying with…

Isabella Knapp

Written By: Matt Knapp (her dad) I’ve always told people that my middle child, Isabella (12), is the strongest person I know. She was born 5 lbs 2 oz and has always been on the shorter side. She wasn’t destined for great heights anyway (I’m 5′ 4″ and my wife is 5′ 2″), but when she turned 6 we found out why she was smaller than other kids her age. She gave me permission to tell you more about her story.……

We call them the prayer ladies, because they have committed to meeting together every week for years to pray for each other, for…
