Jennifer Watts

Dear First Baptist church of Columbia sc,

Wes and choirs,

Hi this is Jennifer Watts from gaffney sc, i lost one bff to covid in February this year and then i lost another bff just a few months apart. We went to one memorial service, it was the hardest thing ever because i never got to say goodbye in person. So please pray for me and their families one was named Brooke Haulbrooks wyatt, my bff from jr high until that horrible covid took her life at age 39,then i lost one more my age 41. I have talked to Kathy and Natalie Knotts about it. We know where the beacon restaurant is. We are mourning and grieving the best we can, but i am sad missing them. I never got to say goodbye to my other Bff named Lynn,because we were in Bristol tn for Easter, and i regretted not going. I just looked up Gaffney sc obituaries there it was. my sister lives in Australia and my brother is in Knoxville tennessee. But they couldn't come. On our way to the beach we go to Lizard's thicket to eat lunch. Please pray for me and the loss of my sweet friends that meant so much to me. I understand it was their time to go,but it hurts. It shook me to the core,i struggle getting through it.

Love,

Jennifer

During this unusual time of isolation and quarantine trusting in the Lord becomes a necessary part of weathering the storm. In addition to this we think prayer and community are also important for your emotional and spiritual health. Thankfully, live streaming technologies means we can gather together in mass despite being miles apart.

That’s exactly what we plan to do with you each Wednesday thanks our LIVE prayer meeting. Every Wednesday Rev. Richard Humphries will lead us through a prayer guide and you’ll be able to pray along together with us. This is one of the best ways we can minister to you during this time of uncertainty. What we do know for certain is that we serve a mighty God. Let’s go to Him together in prayer.
