Dr. Michael Loftis, President of ABWE, shares the following request:

Please lift your hearts toward heaven in concerted prayer for President Emeritus Dr. Wendell Kempton as we close out the year 2007.  Dr. Kempton has been diagnosed with Stage 4 cancer, likely melanoma, in multiple locations throughout his body.  This information was not expected or known about before and the picture has only become clear within the past couple of days. Dr. Kempton will not be available for any meetings or visits, but he and Ruth wish to express their deep appreciation for your love and prayers and for the gift of privacy at this time.

Cards & letters may be sent to ABWE or to their home address below.
Dr. & Mrs. Wendell Kempton
602 Northfield Road
Lititz, PA 17543

Dr. Kempton has always loved and ministered from the Psalms.  I would direct your attention to Psalm 112, especially verses 6 and 7:  “For the righteous will never be moved; . . . . He is not afraid of bad news; his heart is firm, trusting in the Lord.”
