Please Pray For Douglas Roark during recovery from surgery

Please Pray For Douglas Roark during recovery from surgery

Please Pray For Douglas Roark during recovery from surgery

Arden, North Carolina  — The Old Paths are requesting prayers for baritone and founding member, Douglas Roark, who had open-heart surgery today.

Over the past few weeks, Douglas noticed during times of exertion, he had tightness in his chest and shortness of breath accompanied by a spell of lightheadedness. Thinking it was just a blood pressure issue, he scheduled an appointment with a primary care physician. This led to an appointment with a cardiologist, and because of his family history, he had a series of tests that showed a hereditary cardiovascular disease with the need of bypass surgery.

The surgery was scheduled for today, Valentine’s Day, at 6:45 a.m. and as of 11:30 a.m. Doug was out of surgery, and the doctors said everything went great. As Doug would say, “Love y’all! And we covet your prayers at this time.” Please be in prayer for Doug, Andrea and his family in the weeks of recovery that will follow.

The Old Paths will continue with their full-time schedule with Jeremy Chupp filling in at baritone. Many fans will remember him running sound and playing drums for The Old Paths’ ministry through the years. They appreciate him and his family for stepping up and helping in such a major way during this time.

“Thank you all for your support during this time, and we can’t wait to have Doug back on the road with us!” says Tim Rackley, The Old Paths’ lead singer.

Jeff and Ed Harper of The Harper Agency, which books The Old Paths, said they’re also looking forward to Doug returning after his recovery.

“Ed and myself were quite surprised to hear the news about Doug, and we are so pleased that all the prayers were answered!” says Jeff Harper. “We all know this is not what Doug had on his bucket list. We will continue to keep Doug and all his family in our prayers, knowing he will be back on the road as soon as he can after doctors release him after recovery. In the meantime, please go out and support The Old Paths as they continue to travel. This is what Doug would want during his recovery, and he will see you on the next run through.”

If you would like to send personal messages to Doug and Andrea, email theoldpathsmusic@gmail.com. We will keep everyone updated on Doug’s condition.

Kristen Stanton: VICTORY IN THE VALLEY

Written by Staff on February 12, 2019 – 8:24 am -

THE VALLEY BETWEEN

VICTORY IN THE VALLEY

I Samuel 17:26: “And David spoke to the men who stood by him, saying, What shall be done to the man who kills this Philistine, and takes away the reproach from Israel?  For who is this uncircumcised Philistine, that he should defy the armies of the living God?”

In this passage, between I Samuel 17:4 and I Samuel 17:26 when David spoke these words, the Philistine giant, Goliath, had appeared each day for forty days, bestowing a challenge upon Israel to fight him.

In verse 24 we finally see just how Israel responded – “And all the men of Israel, when they saw the man, fled from him, and were sore afraid.”

Have you ever wondered just how long this stand-off would have lasted had David not appeared on the scene?  

Have you stopped to ask yourself why there was a stand-off in the first place?

The Philistines faced off against them, equally able to move from their mountaintop to advance towards Israel.

However, they didn’t pursue –they intimidated. Goliath appeared every day to remind them that they would have to face off against him.

Satan doesn’t want to fight you; he wants to scare you!   

If he fights you, he loses because he knows God has gone before you and fights your battles. If he scares you, he wins because he knows you have forgotten in whom to place your trust!

Victory begins with a change in your perception. Your mind is Satan’s battlefield. Remember, if he scares you, he wins.   

Stop looking at the weight you are carrying as a burden that is keeping you from moving forward. Instead, start thinking about it as an opportunity to grow stronger as you press on.

Stop looking at the valley as a place you don’t want to be. Instead, start thinking about it as a place of growth, a place of life, a place of rest.

Don’t forget the beauty of the valley in your hurry to get through it.  

Kristen Stanton

The reality is that the mountaintop is great for looking back at where you’ve come from and to look ahead to where you are going.

David had victory the moment he said, “who is this uncircumcised Philistine that he should defy the armies of the living God?”   

He did not run in fear but spoke in faith. His mind was prepared, and his perception was that nobody would defeat God!

Goliath was satisfied in scaring Israel because it prevented them from moving forward.   

Satan is satisfied in appearing every day in your life to scare you because that fear prevents you from moving forward in your life to the place God has for you.

Learn from Israel—they cowered in the face of fear and for forty straight days accomplished nothing for God.    

Learn from David–his perception of Goliath was that God would handle him.

Which are you emulating in your own life?  Like David, you too, can find victory in the valley.

The PromisedLand Quartet Welcomes George Thomas

Written by SGN Scoops Staff on February 10, 2019 – 1:12 pm -

The PromisedLand Quartet Welcomes George Thomas

The PromisedLand Quartet Welcomes George Thomas

From The PromisedLand Quartet

Hello Friends,

After months of searching and a number of auditions, we are excited to announce the next bass singer for PromisedLand Quartet! We’d also like to extend a very special “THANK YOU” to everyone who took the time to learn our material and audition with us. There were so many great candidates and we know we’ve come away from this process at least having made new friends.

With that said, it is our pleasure to announce that our new bass singer is George Thomas! George is 37 years old and comes to us from Bunker Hill, WV, where he resides with his wife, Kara, and their children, Alyssa, Ethyn, Elayna, and Kailyn. His passion and enthusiasm for Gospel music and reaching the lost will be a valuable asset to our ministry!

George says, “I’m so glad I get to fulfill my lifelong dream to sing the best music in the world… Southern Gospel!”

George has been a friend of PLQ for several years, and he and KC, in particular, really hit it off. George has never sung professionally before, but has always wanted to sing bass in a quartet. KC has been mentoring him, and the sky’s the limit!

George is working hard to learn our program and we are looking forward to introducing him to all of our friends as we travel. We know you’ll make him and his family feel very welcome!
