Dear Friend & Prayer Partner,

In November of 2012, my mother was diagnosed with breast cancer. She bravely fought and endured a year of doctor visits, tests, chemo treatments and, ultimately, surgery. In 2013, she was declared cancer-free and has enjoyed good health for the past year. As some know, she sang publicly for the first time in many years at my 25th Anniversary event this past August and touched many lives – including mine.

My sisters, brother, and I have no doubt that God touched my mother the first time she faced cancer, and we are just as confident that God is working in her life yet again. The devil is a liar, and we believe only the report of the Lord, our God. Our faith that she will be healed and restored once again has not been shaken one bit.

In the meantime, we are also believing God for a financial miracle.

Both of my parents had retired. But now, at age 67, my dad has returned to the floor covering business to help make ends meet. Of course, my mother can’t return to work in her condition. (She worked in the medical field for nearly 20 years.)

Since retiring, my parents have no insurance. Of course, they do have Medicare. But even that does not pay 100%, and the medical bills from this bout with cancer now mounting on top of the expenses they are still paying from the first bout has simply caused a huge financial hardship on them.

In an effort to relieve them of some of the financial stress and catch up on past due bills, our family and friends have organized a benefit concert for my parents. Trusting God to meet their needs, we are reaching out to the body of Christ for help.

YOU are invited to attend this special concert event at Stockbridge Assembly of God, 3910 N Henry Blvd, Stockbridge, GA. Saturday, November 8. Doors open at 5pm, concert begins at 6pm, featuring Tony Gore & Majesty. This is Tony Gore & Majesty’s first appearance in the Metro Atlanta area in more than ten years and I am really excited about this special occasion. Also singing tomorrow night is Robin Collins and Reyna Barrios. These ladies will absolutely bless you. Also, depending on how she feels, my mother may be singing as well, along with my dad and me.

This is a FREE concert…there is no admission charge. A love offering will be received on the night of the concert. For those who cannot attend, or for those who may simply wish to give online, we have provided a donation link for online giving. Please prayerfully consider a gift of any amount.

There are no words to convey my deepest gratitude for your kindness. But I want to thank you in advance for your offering. Your kindness and generosity are deeply appreciated. Please know that 100% of the donations received will go towards the bills and medical expenses as mentioned above. Again, thank you for your prayerful consideration during this trying time. I know God IS able!

I hope to see you Saturday night. Click Here For More Information.

Love & Prayers,

John Lanier
