Home From Haiti

My neighbor, Lloyd Frazier, former missionary overseer and church leader in Haiti, is back at home after being banged up in the Haiti earthquake a few days ago. Frances talked to his wife (Edna )about an hour ago - and learned that they have been occupied with the birth of a new grand-child over the week-end and that's why we could not reach them by phone earlier. Lloyd thanks you for your prayers and says that other than being bruised and sore he is fine.

Lovell and Ginny Cary arrived safely back in Cleveland, Tennessee on Saturday night, the 16th of January, 2010. The picture above was of a happier time when they were our special guests for the Botswana, Africa National Convention. Brother Cary is bruised and sore but has no broken bones. Sister Cary is now suffering from "cracked ribs". The best treatment for this condition is total rest...and (of course) prayer. Thank you to all of you who have prayed for these wonderful friends.

Thanks for the update Fred. I know it is impossible to understand how someone feels who witnesses that much death and destruction.

We all know there is so much more to do. Manual labor and prayer.
Thanks again
Love Jack & Sherry
PS: Watched the video about your Grandma, it was great!

About Me

Cleveland, TN, United States
I am Fred Alton Brannen, the son of Louis A. Brannen (deceased) and Bonnie Jones Brannen, Louis was an Ordained Bishop with the Church of God. Bonnie is an Ordained Licensed Minister and at 89 years of age is still actively engaged in speaking and singing engagements. I am married to the former Frances Hildreth. We celebrated 53 years of marriage this past June and we are the parents of 3, grand-parents of 10, and great-grandparents of 10. I pastored in Tennessee for 24 years and served the Church in some capacity in missions for over 23 years. I retired from full-time ministry in August of 2008 but remain active, speaking and singing and teaching whenever opportunity affords itself. In January of 2010 I received a letter of commendation for having been credentialed as a minister in the Church of God for 50 years! My family is very important to me. Our get togethers are always noisy affairs and most times will include family sing-alongs. The children love their Mom's cooking so we have the privilege of seeing them regularly! WE LOVE having them over.
