Let us bring and hold the Collins Family to the throne today and in the coming days.  The immediate message is from Sr. Judy Sherman, Rev. Dan Collins Sister.
"Please pray for all the brother is home."
The message below is from his son James:
"May 16, 2020
Our father has just taken his first celestial breath in heaven at 8:20 am this morning. He is rejoicing in heaven free of pain. Please continue to pray for the family as we work though funeral arrangements. —James"

From dad's close friend, Dennis Hartman:
"... he was the last one standing. He loved his dear sweet Jesus. He loved his dear family. He was a great man, and a wonderful friend. And he knew how to wreck blue Ford pick-up trucks too. I knew he was always there. A soldier, a defender of the Faith, and a big missionary heart all in one husband, father, and most of all my friend. My friend. Really, I guess the last preacher friend that i could see eye to eye with. O Dan, when you finish praiseing Jesus - give him a hug for me. I love you my brother. I'll see you a bit later."

To the Collins Family:  On behalf of the Pilgrim Holiness Church of NY Conference I extend to you our deepest sympathy, heartfelt love, and earnest prayers!  We love you and May God sustain you at this time with His grace.  Remember, underneath you are "HIs everlasting Arms"!

Prayer is requested for a Rev. Dan Collins.  He is not well.  

His sister, Sr. Judy Sherman shares the request below:

"Please request prayer for my brother. He is not doing well. He was in hospital but they are taking him home and his kids will all be there by Saturday. We are in lockdown at least till Sunday, so I  don't know if I can even get there. Thanks."

Let us hold Bro. Collins, his wife Deborah, and children up in prayer.  Also remember in prayer the whole Collins family.

May God's grace sustain them.  God's grace is sufficient.  I remember doing a Ministerial internship under Bro. Dan Collins in/around  July1987 on the Indian reservation in Winslow, Arizona.  I appreciate the memories and influence that he had upon my life at that time.

To the Collins Family:  May you experience the strength that only comes from our God, and the comfort of the blessed Holy Spirit.  We love you.

Please remember Sr. Rhea Dawn Owens in prayer.  She has been hospitalized this last night.  Below is a message from Bro. Owens:

"This is Richard posting for Rhea Dawn who spent the night in the Cooperstown Hospital. She has had prolonged numbness at various times, so she went to get checked out. Doctors are treating it like a mini stroke. (TIA) She is on plavix (anti-coagulant), and will have an MRI today, May 8. She presently does not have any symptoms."

Let's pray for Sr. Owens as well as for the Owen's family. This is tough on them because they can't be with their loved due to this pandemic. Let's hold them up to God's throne.

5/5 R Sickler

Steve Mills is asking us  to pray for him tomorrow evening, Wed.  He is going to visit a new family in Manacapuru that have real spiritual needs.  He needs God's wisdom and guidance as he talks with them.  Please hold him up in prayer.

Prayer is requested for Rev. Jason Morford (Syracuse, NY) and Rev. Jeremy Morford (Altamont, KS).  As you know they are brothers and they just received word tonight that their uncle committed suicide.  They were very close to this uncle as he stepped in as dad after their dad died.  Obviously, this comes as a total shock to them.  They would appreciate and covet your prayers at this time.

May God comfort and Strengthen the Morford family as only God can do.  Jeremy and Jason, we love you and we pray God's sustaining grace to under gird you at this very difficult time.  Please remember that even now God's everlasting arms are underneath you, his wings are above you, his rod and staff are beside you.  He as your shepherd is in front of you, and his goodness and mercy will follow you.  May God hide you in the cleft of the rock, sheltered safe within the arms of God. 

Let us Pilgrims covenant together to call upon God for Jeremy and Jason and their families.  You are free to send an email or text message to them letting them know of your prayers and support.
Jason  570-765-3683
Jeremy    518-688-7678

There is one request.  They are asking everyone to please not post anything on facebook.  It has not even been announced yet.  The Morford thank you for your prayers and cooperation in advance.
