We take a trip to Jamacia to see how the Avery Pregnancy & Resource Center is operating a mission in Jamacia. Pastor Rick Mercer share the Power of the Word. Finally, the Run for Holland returns in April. There's lots going on!

In the December issue of Blue Ridge Christian News you learned how God is using APRC to support a mission work on the island of Jamaica; it is called Pregnancy Resource Center Jamaica (PRCJ).
We are thrilled to be the hands and feet of Jesus in this work and amazed at how God is meeting His children there.

The Power of the Word

Rick and Cindy Mercer

I personally have not been on death row, nor do I know anyone in that predicament. But recently, a story was shared about a young man named Sam Tannyhill.

Run for Holland is April 25

Holland Burleson

I can hardly believe it is time for the 2nd Annual Run For Holland. The race will be on Saturday, April 25th, beginning at 8:00 am at Riverside Park in Spruce Pine. New this year, we are adding a 10K component to the original 5K and 1 mile Fun Run. The purpose of the Run For Holland is to educate our citizens about Down Syndrome. Specifically, we hope to raise awareness for parents who have had or are having a child born with a physical or mental disability.

Down on the Funny Farm

Doug HarrellAs I reminisce about my past agricultural prowess, I am still amazed to have survived so many near-misses with death at Harrell Hill Farms. There are nights I awaken, terrified of “what might have been,” always thankful for God’s protective coveringϑ.

This month I want to share two short stories, more evidence of how easily things can go awry!

So, it's on to the Hamat Suit and the Waving Watermelon.
