IC CHAPLAIN'S REPORT
ESA IC Chaplain Report Monday, November 28, 2022
“Remember your leaders…and…imitate their faith”
As you travel your journey, it can take a lot of strength at times to keep going – to keep believing. One thing I have learned that has helped me tremendously to stay strong, faithful, and forward looking is a lesson I learned long ago: make the faith of other’s a motivator. Look at your mentors and who inspires you. Mother Teresa’s story helps me believe that maybe, just maybe, I can do half as much for humanity in my lifetime as she did in hers.
“Lord, thank you for working through the lives of others. Help me draw strength and motivation from them to keep moving forward.”
~ Christine Caine
I hope you and your family had a very Happy Thanksgiving with family and friends! We lift up these members and their families, as they face a difficult season. Please send any information you would like shared to Tammy Gregg, 2022-2023 IC Chaplain at email@example.com

It is with both sadness and divine joy that we write to tell you all of our mother Marjorie’s passing. She was welcomed by the Lord on Thursday November 17, 2022.
After her stroke in September of 2021, she was happy and well-cared for in an assisted living facility. But in January of 2022, she began having some serious health issues and was enrolled in hospice in February. Then, you know our mom, she rallied and has had a happy existence until the last few weeks when her condition began declining and her passing became imminent. Even so, she has remained comfortable and as determined as ever to complete her task. We were all there, able to be with her as she neared the end and spent a very joyful and satisfying day before she returned home to our Lord and our daddy.
Her memorial service will be held at Kansas Avenue United Methodist Church, 1029 NE Kansas Avenue, Topeka, KS. on Saturday November 26, 2022, at 1 pm.
Memorials can be made to KS Ave United Methodist Church, PO Box 8184, Topeka, KS 66608-0184 or Topeka Rescue Mission, PO Box 8350, Topeka, KS 66608-0350.
