Caregiver Support Groups provide an opportunity for Caregivers to meet and develop a mutual support system. People typically come to support groups to find others to connect with because “they’ve been there too”. ACE of SW Minnesota - Murray County invites you to join our local Caregiver Support group in the community room at A.C.E. of SW Minnesota – Murray County, 2989 Maple Rd – Slayton MN. We will be meeting at 2:00pm on the 3rd Tuesday of each month, so please join us on Tue. January 15th! For more information, call Murray County A.C.E. Coordinator Joyce Wiekeraad at 507-836-8705.

I said to a man one day as we were discussing the Bible, “Lets say that I’m a real reprobate, a great sinner and have been since I was very young. What must I do to become a Christian and have eternal life?” He replied, “Well, it’s complicated and I would have to get my study books and lesson notes to explain it to you.” I said, “That’s crazy!
When the apostle Paul and Silas had been beaten and in stocks in jail, they prayed and sang praises to God at midnight and God caused an earthquake and the prisoners were freed. The jailer awoke and thought his prisoners escaped and was about to kill himself, but Paul stopped him. The jailer then fell down before Paul and Silas and said, “Sirs, what must I do to be saved?” Thank God that Paul didn’t say, “Well, It’s complicated...” Paul simply said to the jailer, “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.” Paul and Silas then preached the Word of God to the jailer and all that were in his house. (Acts 16:30,33)After receiving Christ by faith and receiving the gift of eternal life, he and those in his house were baptized in water.
Have you done this yet? Talk to God today, repent of your sin and confess Jesus as Lord of your life. Ask Him to come into your life to wash away all your sin and bless you with His gift of everlasting life. (Romans 10: 9 &10).
