From the Children’s Ministry….

I miss being with the Parkway Kids so much!  I know that many of you are also missing being together as a church family. However, after fighting Covid-19 for over a month, seventeen days of that in the hospital, I am more convinced now than ever before that Parkway is doing the right thing in remaining closed until we see a significant decline in the number of cases in Georgia.  If anyone has any doubt about that, feel free to give me a call and I will go into grotesque detail about what this virus can do. You do not want to take a chance that you will be one of the “few” that is hit hard by this virus. It is nothing like the flu.  

From my own personal experience to talking with the doctors, nurses, techs, and respiratory staff, now is not the time to relax precautions. While I was in the hospital, the emergency room was full of patients waiting for a room to open up. All the hospital staff were overwhelmed with the number of patients they had to take care of. The one message they all had was to “wear a mask!” They were also quite pleased that Parkway had made the choice to remain closed. No matter how boring staying at home is, believe me when I say it is much better than spending time in the hospital!

Even though this has been a difficult time for our family, we all agree how blessed we are to be a part of the Parkway family! You will never know what your meals, cards, messages, flowers and especially your prayers have meant to us.  I felt your prayers! Because you were taking such good care of Dave and my mother, I could concentrate on getting well!  We love you all so much!

I am anxious to return to normal, but know that at least for now, we must continue to do all we can to protect our members. When we do go back, I think everyone will be excited to see the changes that are taking place. Especially the children!

Stay safe! Wear a mask!  Keep your distance from anyone who does not have on a mask. I can’t wait to see all of you when it is safe to do so!
