With heavy hearts we are sharing an update and a request. Mrs. Cox has been diagnosed with terminal stage 4 kidney cancer and she has just a few months here with us. She has great peace about her home going and is looking forward to being with her Saviour.
Until the day she enters heaven, she desires to share her final days with her loving husband. The specialized care that they will need ranges between $18,000 and $26,000 per month depending on what is available, a nursing home or home care. They would need 24 hour care with the ability to administer medication. This will be all out of pocket. We are requesting that friends show support by financially giving to help offset these costs.
Pastor Wayne Cox, founding Pastor of Florence Baptist Temple in Burlington Kentucky, served alongside his wife for over 48 years. He suffered a massive stroke in 2020 and retired in 2022. His sweet wife, Sharon, has been instrumental in furthering the Kingdom of Christ. Please come alongside their family in this difficult time. May God bless you for honoring Preacher and Mrs. Cox.
Happy Thanksgiving. November 20, 2022
Psalms 100: 4 & 5 Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name. For the LORD is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.
What a wonderful day to enter into His gates with THANKSGIVING. We are giving Him the praise. Mrs Cox opened her birthday cards (with the help of her friends). She was so touched. She immediately called to share that there was more money to cover expenses. This is what she was wanting for her birthday.
I can't express what the generosity of so many has meant to Preacher, Mrs. Cox and the family. Later this week they will be able to spend Thanksgiving together, not in a nursing home, care facility or hospital. They will be together, thankfully, in their home. For the Lord is good. Thank you for being willing to give. Will you share this in your social media feeds, follow the campaign and pray? We have funds to provide the in-home care through Dec 12th. Folks this means so much- we are so Thankful.
Special Day this Sunday Nov 20th November 16, 2022
Preacher and Mrs Cox are feeling so blessed. The love being shown by visits, words of encouragement, home cooked meals, and financial support is amazing. This Sunday is Mrs Cox's birthday, her desire has been to spend her last days home, and with her husband. Funds raised so far will provide care through December 6th. When people ask her what she wants for her birthday it is to have enough to stay home.
For all those that have given or will give before Sunday we will print off your note and put it in a Birthday card for Mrs Cox. Just a special way to show her that we are happy that she was born and that she has touched so many.
Please continue to lift the family in your prayers.
Answered Prayers November 10, 2022
Praising the Lord.
So far we have raised funds to cover care till November 26! This is such an answer to prayer. Another answered prayer: Mrs Cox came home earlier this week and is happy to be there.
Mrs Cox has two prayer requests. Please pray with her asking the Lord to comfort Preacher. You know what he has gone through.
Secondly, please pray that her pain stays manageable. She is taking medicine. She has peace, mostly from the Lord, and "a little from her pill". She said that with a smile.
Our goal has not changed, we want to provide funding for as long as we can to keep her home, with Preacher. Please share, follow and if you haven't as of yet, give.
1 Timothy 5:17 Let the elders that rule well be counted worthy of double honour, especially they who labour in the word and doctrine.
