LEISURE CENTER: The Leisure Center is reaching out to the community to ask for help in delivering meals and driving the bus. One day a week (excluding Saturday and Sunday) is all you would be asked to do. If you feel like you cannot commit to one day a week then sign up as a reserve driver or deliverer. If you should need to be off, someone will fill in. This is a wonderful service for our community and certainly helps people who do not feel like fixing a meal or just can’t because of health reasons. The saying "many hands make light work" certainly applies to this situation. Drivers need a valid driver’s license. Please call 886-3466 if you are interested.

NOTICE: AA meetings are Tuesday nights at 8PM at the Presbyterian Church.

NOTICE: The Barber County Health Department will no longer be having an open clinic on Wednesday afternoons for Immunizations. Due to insurance changes and the manner in which State vaccine is handled, it will be necessary to make appointments for immunizations. To reduce the in-office wait time, we would like for each client to call for an immunization appointment with the following information: the name of the insurance company, prior authorization phone number, and the card holder’s account number. Our office will contact the insurance company in advance of the scheduled appointment. Phone number: 620-886-3294 or 1-800-748-5788. We will still be providing State vaccine for those with State Insurance, and private vaccine for those with private insurance.

Hoersch will speak at The Father’s House

By Doris Sorg

The Gyp Hill Premiere

In our technological world, we are always looking for ways to do things faster and easier. People who rely on God for answers to their trials, troubles, and tribulations know that He has His own timing and most of the time the answers do not come instantaneously.

Mike Hoesch will be in Medicine Lodge at The Father’s House of Worship Outreach at 111 W. First on Friday, September 19th at 7:00 p.m. and at The Father’s House of Worship in Sun City at 201 E. Main on Sunday at 10:00 a.m. to share his personal testimony of the healing power that comes from God through his son, Jesus.

After a trip to the doctor in 2001 to have a sore he had had for a year checked out, he received the diagnosis of having a malignant neoplasm, a cancerous skin tumor, on his chest and was scheduled for surgery.

Hoesch had been a Christian for many years before receiving the diagnosis. He already believed in supernatural healing that came from God, but he had been taught that there were conditions that had to be met before receiving that healing.

Hoesch made the decision to cancel surgery. Over the next several years, Hoesch struggled not only with his physical condition, but also with his spiritual beliefs.

The malignant neoplasm continued to grow and he became weaker as the time passed. After he became so weak that he could no longer work, he spent much of his time reading the Bible and praying. During this time, he realized that there were things that he was learning about the ways of God that contradicted things that he had been taught and had believed.

In 2008, Hoesch was introduced to the teaching series, "You’ve Already Got It" by Andrew Wommack. The series gave him a new understanding of the love Jesus has for His people and the healing that is unconditionally available because of His death on the cross.

After Hoesch turned his focus from his growing tumor to Jesus, the massive tumor began decreasing in size.

Hoesch’s healing did not come quickly; his healing journey spans several years. He will be sharing his inspirational story while in Medicine Lodge and Sun City. His testimony is about how the power of God’s Word worked in his life to help him to understand what God had already done for him through Jesus and can do for you.

For more information, Pastor Deitra Black of The Father’s House of Worship may be contacted at (620) 248-3320.
