Please Pray For Pastor Bob DeWaay

I saw rumblings of the following announcement on Facebook. It appears Pastor Bob DeWaay is no longer on staff at Twin City Fellowship. I wasn’t able to verify this on some of the bigger ODM sites so I was forced to Google to find the churches website. What reads below is exactly what is on the website…..

10/28/2010 — Update regarding Bob DeWaay:
We now have a clear picture regarding Bob DeWaay’s health issues. He has been diagnosed with Alcoholic Hepatitis. He is currently being treated and is making progress; the long-term effects to his health are yet unknown.

It is with great sadness that we have to report that Bob will no longer be a part of the leadership of Twin City Fellowship. Please keep Bob, his family, and Twin City Fellowship in your prayers.

For those of you who aren’t familiar with Alcoholic Hepatitis please see the following link.

Please join me in prayer for Pastor DeWaay and his family during this very difficult time……

The ODM World’s Silence Speaks Volumes….at least to me

Last night I was thinking about the events of the past few weeks and one of the questions that have been asked the most is;

Where are the ODM’s and why aren’t they publicly condemning the aberrant behavior of one of their own?

I find myself asking the same question. Continue reading
