Hallelujah, Praise the Lamb! Join Charles & Bess Kirby in rejoicing in God's miracle. We were anxious to know the outcome of Charles' recent full-body Pet scan. And, his doctor's office called this morning telling us that the scan turned out Good!  Turning out good means to us, no cancer has been revealed. We are beyond excited. We are thankful. We are praising God for His wonderful care and this, our miracle. Thank you all for your prayers for us.

Blog 320 for June 3, 2023




You probably saw the announcement from last week’s blogs concerning the apparent return of my cancer.  Any time any of us gets news like this, we know one thing for sure.  We need the prayers of our many friends. 


Here’s my situation.  My recent yearly check-up revealed that my PSA was higher, going from four to seven in a short time. Apparently, my radiation treatments in the past did not eradicate the cancer. So my family doctor sent me to Dr. Gitter, my present oncologist. He proposed a plan. I am in the first phase of his plan, which consists of one daily pill for thirty days. I am scheduled for a whole-body pet scan. That may give the location of the cancer. After that we will go to Dr. Gitter’s second phase, shots. 


As you can see, I really do need a lot of prayers.  It is so true that prayer changes things.  There’s not a Christian living that does not believe this. Not only does prayer change things, but it strengthens us for our journey.


I have so appreciated my prayer army throughout my pastoral ministry…and I appreciate you now.  Thanks for your many and faithful prayers for me.  God bless you richly.

 My June 2023 Testimony


“I’ve found a friend in Jesus; He’s everything to me.  He’s the fairest of ten thousand to my soul.  The Lily of the Valley, in HIM alone I see all I need to cleanse and make me fully whole…” (Words by Charles Fry, 1881; Music by William Hays, 1881)


My June 2023 Prayer


“Like a lily among thorns” (Song of Solomon 2:2)

Like a lily in the shade, let me help someone.

Rose of Sharon, show me how to grow in beauty 

In God’s sight.  Fairest of ten thousand, make me a reflection 

of your light. Daystar shine down on me, let Your love 

shine through me in the night…” (written by Bill



Oh God, make me a blessing to someone today. 

Thank you JESUS.  Amen.
