friday dinner_steve mahoney.png

STEVE MAHONEY

Our speaker this evening Friday, September 6 is Steve. He became a believer
in the Lord Jesus Christ when he was 20 years old and soon began
telling the stories from the Word of God to others. When he was 54,
he had a health scare which could have cost him his life. After three months of recovery, and out of appreciation for a spared life, he promised God
he would memorize and dramatize the Gospel of John. Now Steve
presents the Gospel of John to individuals and groups,
making Jesus’ amazing miracles and message come alive.
Steve tells the Gospel of John from memory and in a storytelling fashion.

Scholars suggest that close to ninety percent of people in Jesus' day
could not read or write, so this is an example of how people
of the first century may have heard the Gospel of John told.

Steve tries to maintain close to a ninety-five percent accuracy
with the version of the text he is using. That version, the "Logos 21 Version"
of the Gospel of John (found all around Orange County, CA.,
in evangelistic outreach) can be found online at: LivingWater.org.

Steve has been married to Diane for 41 years, has two grown,
married sons, and loves to tell the stories of Jesus. They both hail from Minneapolis, MN, and Diane, as Pastor Leland well knows, grew up in the very church (Trinity Lutheran of Minnehaha Falls, in Minneapolis) that he first interned for when he was going to Seminary in St. Paul, MN.

friday dinner_steve mahoney.png

STEVE MAHONEY

Our speaker for Friday, September 6 is Steve. He became a believer
in the Lord Jesus Christ when he was 20 years old and soon began
telling the stories from the Word of God to others. When he was 54,
he had a health scare which could have cost him his life. After three months of recovery, and out of appreciation for a spared life, he promised God
he would memorize and dramatize the Gospel of John. Now Steve
presents the Gospel of John to individuals and groups,
making Jesus’ amazing miracles and message come alive.
Steve tells the Gospel of John from memory and in a storytelling fashion.

Scholars suggest that close to ninety percent of people in Jesus' day
could not read or write, so this is an example of how people
of the first century may have heard the Gospel of John told.

Steve tries to maintain close to a ninety-five percent accuracy
with the version of the text he is using. That version, the "Logos 21 Version"
of the Gospel of John (found all around Orange County, CA.,
in evangelistic outreach) can be found online at: LivingWater.org.

Steve has been married to Diane for 41 years, has two grown,
married sons, and loves to tell the stories of Jesus. They both hail from Minneapolis, MN, and Diane, as Pastor Leland well knows, grew up in the very church (Trinity Lutheran of Minnehaha Falls, in Minneapolis) that he first interned for when he was going to Seminary in St. Paul, MN.

You won’t want to miss this dramatic presentation. Please call in your reservations by Wednesday, September 4 at noon to (949)492-2200.

DIRK AND MARY KOS

As per Mary regarding Dirk: “We visited the doctor and the result
of the surgery was that indeed it was Medullary thyroid cancer.
The thyroid was removed, and we understand they also removed
all the lymph nodes in the neck. On the right side of the neck
they removed 67 lymph nodes and 11 had cancer in it. So far,
the result of the blood work is okay. The weakness and fatigue
are normal after such an extensive surgery. We have another
appointment with the surgeon on September 4. We are very
thankful to God and thank you so much for your prayers,
love and care. That means so much to us.”

AMELIA

Update on Amelia, Dana Pereau and Antoinette’s grandchild
Late last year we learned that she was losing what little sight she has in her right eye due to a large cataract and deprivation Amblyopia. The lens must be replaced, but she also needs an iris to help filter light and improve vision. A unique surgery can remove and replace the useless lens at the same time as placing an iris where there never was one before; a rare procedure U.S. insurance companies have no billing code for yet.
Irises for this type of surgery are made in Germany,

Dr. Snyder of the Eye Institute of Cincinnati is the only surgeon in the U.S. who has ever performed this procedure and was responsible for its FDA approval. There was an opening in his schedule. Tom, Melissa and Amelia flew to Ohio in February, only to learn the bad news. Although Dr Snyder believed Amelia was a candidate and it could be successful, her insurance company in Washington said it absolutely could not be done; there was no billing code for it and specialists in WA denied it was possible. Funds would need to be sent to Germany immediately if they had any hope of Dr Snyder doing the dual procedure in the U.S. BUT GOD.

Tom and Melissa arranged for the wire transfer to Germany,
and they flew with Amelia for her surgery on June 27th.
Pray for a successful and speedy recovery.
