 "An urgent  prayer request came in from Sis. Duclos from our Pittsfield, Massachusetts church. Sis. Duclose and daughter contracted covid-19 and has been quite ill. Bro. Duclos who is Bro. Smith's main caregiver, has checked into a hotel. He has had two negative covid test so far. They want to be sure and are awaiting results from the third one. Sis. Duclos is very concerned about Bro. Smith and the elderly there at the church. Please, lift the Duclos's and the Pittsfield church up to the throne. Thank you in advance for your prayers!"

Please request prayer in your prayer meeting services tonight and hold Pastor Stephen Smith and the rest of the Pittsfield congregation up in prayer.  Let's take them to the throne trusting God to help in time of need!

"For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain." Philippians 1:21

Two more dear saints have gained the heavenly prize!  Melbourne and Esther Clark have received their heavenly reward.  They were both long time members of our Pilgrim Holiness Church in Brushton, New York.

 Melbourne Clark 98, passed away on January 28, 2021. His wife Esther passed away on March 20, 2021.  They had celebrated their 77th wedding anniversary in November of 2020.  They were residents at Alice Hyde Nursing facility in Malone.  A graveside service for Esther and Melbourne will commence at the Sandhill Cemetery in Dickinson, NY on May 14, 2021 at 1 pm.

The Pilgrim family rejoices in the home going of these precious saints.  We also pray for the remaining Clark family that the God of all comfort would envelop them with His love and grace.  Let us lift the Clark family to the throne today and in the coming days/weeks.

Charles Nemier passed away on Wednesday of last week.  His funeral service was yesterday.  My sincere apologies of not sending this announcement sooner.   Bro. Nemier was a long time member/board member of the Pierrepont Manor Pilgrim Holiness Church.  

May the God of all comfort bless the Nemier family at this time.  Thank you to all the Nemier family for sharing your Charles with our Conference all these years.  He is now enjoying the eternal presence of the one whom he loved and lived for down here on earth.  May we all be inspired by his life to strive to make it to the heavenly city!    

He will be missed by all who knew him.  A great man who loved God and loved people.  I remember, probably 25 years ago, of staying in his home with my young family at that time while I preached in Pierrepont Manor on a Sunday.  Just very loving, caring, hospitable person.

Prayer requested for Rev. Gary Mills. On Monday February 8th he is to have a heart procedure to fix a hole in his heart. The doctor is very optimistic about the results. This surgery is a new development in the last few years that could not be done years ago when he had his stroke (s). Below is a note from his wife, Karen.

"Surgery is early Monday morning in Camden, NJ which is about an hour away. It is a procedure to close the hole in his heart that the doctors feel has been causing the blood clots that have resulted in several strokes. He is supposed to stay in the hospital overnight. As is the "norm" these days, I can only drop him off at the front door and go back and pick him up the next day. This is cause for anxiety for both of us. But God has opened the door for this to finally be addressed so we are trusting in His care, knowing that "He doeth all things well." Thank you for your prayers!"

Let us hold Bro. and Sis. Mills up in prayer as they face this. God is our refuge and he has promised to be with us. He will not fail.

Please share this in your Sunday Services. Thanks

On Monday morning February 1, David Wilcox passed away.  Bro. Wilcox was a member of our Lake Placid Pilgrim Holiness Church.  For clarity for some who do not know, he was adopted by Fred and Lorraine McCully, hence his name Paul McCully, but later changed his name to his birth parents (Wilcox).

Viewing and Services are scheduled for this Saturday, February 6 at the Lake Placid Pilgrim Holiness Church.  Viewing will be from 1 pm - 2 pm with the funeral service at 2 pm.

As of now the obituary is not available but may be soon.  Please click on the link below to view the obituary, send condolences, or share a memory.

As Pilgrims, let us be in continued prayer for the family of Bro. Wilcox.  May the Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ and the Comfort of the Holy Spirit be the family's portion at this time.

1/24 J. Brewer Bob and Joan Lake need your prayers. Joan has been house-bound long before Covid, however, in December Joan suffered a stroke. She has since contracted Covid-19 and now pneumonia. In recent days a soft feeding tube has been inserted. She remains very weak. Bob who has also been diagnosed with Covid, has seen his wife for only a few minutes since the stroke and the brief phone calls of coherent conversation do not make a dent in the long and lonely hours of quarantine. Last week funeral arrangements were made as hope looks dim. Please help us hold them up in prayer.

Yesterday Sis. Olive Cook passed away.  Sis. Cook was a member of our Russell Pilgrim Holiness Church.  In earlier years she had been a part of our Pilgrim Holiness Church in Ogdensburg.  Later she moved to the Russell area and attended our church in Russell.  For a period of time she became disconnected from the church.  In recent years ( the last 3 - 4 years ) through the faithfulness of Pastor Charles Colton and Rev. Stephen Smith (Evangelist in Russell at the time) went to visit Olive Cook and from then on she continued faithfully to attend and became a member once again.  It was interesting to learn just recently that Olive's father (Nelson) and my mother's Grandfather (Aurthur) were brothers.  Last name was Forbes.

Sis. Cook will be missed by many.  Our deepest Sympathy, sincere love, and heartfelt prayers to the Cook family.
