Green Hill Presbyterian Church

We believe that we are here to worship and obey God, to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ in the power of the Holy Spirit so that people will come to know and trust Christ as their personal Lord and Savior, grow in obedience to Him, and become involved in service to the world.

Green Hill is a small loving and caring church family of active duty and retired military and non-military members from across the United States and the world. We are drawn together as one family in Christ to express the absolute joy and wonder of God’s love through worship, Christian education, fellowship activities and community outreach.

We minister to our permanent members and also take great pride and pleasure in providing a spiritual home for service members and their families while they are assigned to Fort Rucker. We welcome all who wish to join our family as we seek to know Christ and make Christ known.

Dear Prayer Partners,

“I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in me will never die.” John 11:25 As we enter the Easter season, it is my prayer you are encouraged by the promise of the new life we have in Christ.

Three months have gone by since my last letter; three months full of blessings, activities and situations to help us grow in our spiritual walk with the Lord. I enjoyed attending the Presbytery meeting in Tekax this past January where I sold nearly $1,000 of Christian literature. The fellowship with the pastors, many of whom are former students of ours, is always a blessing. Dave and I attended these bi-yearly meetings for 45 years.

Dr. Will Ackles and his wife, Nancy, came in January. Some of you may remember Nancy from last summer when she drove me around to visit many of you in various parts of south eastern U.S. They have been coming for 15 years during the months of January through March to teach at the seminary. He was here a year ago during and after the time of Dave’s home-going and it was good to have him and his wife back this year. It has been such a help for me to have him here for driving, preaching and taking communion to remote congregations. We have visited Chemax, Yalcobá, and Tekom, where he and Dave had last ministered communion in February of 2013. It was such a joy to these “forgotten” brothers and sisters to participate.

Another friend of many years, Julie Newton, is also here and has taken me to visit other churches. We were in Carrillo Puerto for the re-installation of Pastor Salvador Chan, who will be serving the church there another 5 years. He is a San Pablo graduate and is doing an excellent job. I was able to take and sell many Bibles and other materials they requested. During the church service, a women’s choir from Tabi sang in Maya, bringing back many memories of Dave and his Dad and the early beginnings of that congregation. The following day we visited Don Anastacio in the town of Señor. Dave and I had been there a year ago, conversing in a mixture of Spanish and Maya. We cried, prayed, sang and had a wonderful time together. His keyboard was damaged so I brought it to Merida to see about getting it repaired. Someday I will be able to go out there again and hope to bless them with a working keyboard to accompany their singing.

Camp activities, weddings, teaching, choir rehearsals and cooking make up the hours of my days. Debbie’s mother-in-law was able to return home after 6 months of therapy in Merida. They were able to find a person to care for her at her home. Being back in her own home has been good for her and she is doing well.

I am already making preparations for a summer full of activities. Seminary graduation will be held on June 5, and the following day I plan to fly to Florida for a week. My son Daniel will drive me to visit some churches and friends whom I was not able to visit last year. The first week of July I will be at Presbytery meetings again, this time in the town of Cenotillo. Later on in July I hope to travel to a low vision center in Mexico City with either Mark or Debbie. It was highly recommended to me by my ophthalmologist and I would like to know what vision aides might be available there so I can read better. Towards the end of July, Daniel will bring a construction group from his St. Louis church. They will build another classroom in the seminary extension center in Citilcum.

March 22nd was the first anniversary of Dave’s home-going. We had a small family memorial service and put a gravestone in place. It was very meaningful to all of us, but a difficult time as well. I had the title of his favorite Spanish hymn engraved on it, “I am always in the Lord’s Service” and in Maya “Well done, faithful servant.” A year has gone by but it seems like yesterday. I still miss him very much, but thank the Lord for his vast ministry.

Be Still My Soul

Be still, my soul, the Lord is on they side,
Bear patiently the cross of grief or pain.
Leave to thy God to order and provide,
In every change He faithful will remain.
Be still my soul, thy best, thy heavenly Friend,
Through thorny ways leads to a joyful end.

Be still, my soul, the hour is hastening on
When we shall be forever with the Lord;
When disappointment, grief and fear are gone,
Sorrow forgot, love’s purest joys restored.
Be still my soul, when change and tears are past,
All safe and blessed we shall meet at last.

Catherine VonSchegel, 1697

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.  For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him.  John 3:16-17

Then, we will head back to our side of the street for Sunday School at 9:30am, Coffee & Fellowship at 10:30am, and Morning Worship at 11:00am.
