Dear Rich and Robin,
My husband and I continue to pray for you.

We surely understand the stress of these trials; we are both 4[] pastors and had to leave the f/t pastorate (our church) when he was diagnosed 2 years ago with stage 4 prostate cancer and given just months to live.
We too,have the financial trials and are finding that He remains ever faithful...we are living from faith to faith...and we too are learning to live a sabbath mode life- resting completely in Him :)
My husband recently had his last chemo session as it is no longer working.

Interestingly, he too have experienced the same oppression from the cumulative burdens.
We cling to His word, "Though my soul melts with grief, He will strengthen me according to His word". We've been praying that for you guys too.

An interesting note for you:
The healing rooms in Seattle have contacted us and will be corporately praying for healing of cancers THIS SUNDAY from 9:00 am to 10:00 AM. We are also praying specifically for PASTORS who are afflicted with cancer. You are welcome to join Seattle in this prayer, the Holy Spirit has no geographical limits!
We believe.
Many blessings to you both.
Sherry & Terence Luttrell

Dear Rich,
You are correct in saying God is not through with you, for you are ministering through your writings on this website. I for one am blessed with your words and blessed by your honesty of emotions. You help reel me back to the cross everytime I read your entries. I am praying for a door to open for you and Robin. Wait on the Lord.....

Dearest Rich & Robin,
My heart bleeds for you and I am crying with you as I know your sadness and sorrow all too well. We are supposed to be strong because we have Jesus who will care for us. Yeah right!! Even Jesus cried in the Garden. Your strength is still remarkable and you have a right to cry.
I still cry for Erika at times for days on end and people tell me that she is in a better place. I Even wanted to make sure that she is ok, but she sent me a sign that was unmistakably from her. The pain of my loss is felt so strong and so real as nothing is the same anymore.
My friends, you are in my prayers every waking moment. Tears are not all bad, even we think we should be strong for others.
All my love, Emilie

Hi Guys!
As I read the latest posting I was brought to tears at the thought of my friends going through such a difficult time, wishing there was something I could physically do to help. The only conclusion I could come to was to pray, although somehow that doesn't seem enough. Sharon brought to mind that even Christ cried in The Garden. As I sit at my computer here in Colorado Springs, uprooted from all that has been familiar to me for the last 11 years I find my self somewhat isolated in a large town yet comforted by the following of God's calling here. Sharon and I can only begin to know what you are going through but know that, in a way, we share your pain and sorrow. Wish we could give you a hug and tell you it will be ok.

Love and Peace through Jesus Christ our Lord and Comforter.

Rich & Robin,
Dave and I have been praying for both of you...Know that on those days when you don't feel strong, you can draw strength from the One who is. "The Lord is my Rock, my Fortress, my Deliverer; my whom I will trust" (Psalms 18:2 AMP). As I have been reading your blogs about your journey...between the tears and prayers for the both of you, we have realized that "You are both leaving a legacy of encouragement, a legacy of purpose, and a legacy of love". Your legacy will embrace generations to come. As I read your latest blog, I was reminded of the song, "Tears are a Language God Understands". God sees the tears that you cry. He not only sees your tears Rich & Robin but He hears them when they fall. He weeps along with you,and is holding on to both of you. I can think of no better place to be than in the shelter of His arms.remember we serve a God that makes the impossible, possible.
Love in Christ,
Dave & Darlene Crumrine

Dear Rich and Robin,

I've been reading your blog for quite awhile now and have been touched by your trials as viewed through the eyes of a fellow RCCer. Know that I, too, pray for you. You are inspirational in ways you don't even realize!!!

May God Bless both you and Robin as you continue your journey.

Dear Rich & Robin,

You are such an inspiration. God will provide and he never fails us. We all have to realize that we need the Lord in our lives without him we have nothing. He is all in and always there. If God choses to
take us to heaven (he Wins) and if he choses for us to stay on earth (its still a
win). So when he comes to take us home I am
ready. He gives me so much peace and I thank him for everyday. I ask him every morning what it is he wants me to do and what direction he wishes me to go. Bless you and your wife, you have given so much
to so many. JUDY
