Vineyard Family House Update and a Special Prayer Request

Marty TackettNews

Dear Family and Friends: As so many of you know, we had major roof, ceiling, and other damage to our new Vineyard Family House on West Strong Street from hurricane Sally. We have turned down 42 families since September 5, 2020.    

Baptist hospital called.  The Mauldins are from Muscle Shoals, Alabama.  Both contracted Covid.  Suzanne had a mild case.  Tim became so sick he was hospitalized.  Suzanne, being positive for Covid could not even visit her husband.  December 5, 2020, Tim was transferred to Baptist hospital here in Pensacola.  He was placed on a ventilator and as of 9 days ago, ECMO, a heart-lung assist machine.  He is VERY critical.  

This is a picture of Tim Mauldin.  We received a very special prayer request last night from his wife, Suzanne.  

Per Suzanne, his condition has been up and down.  This morning, he became very critical.  Tim is just 50 years old.  No prior health problems per Suzanne.  They have two children, ages 16 & 20 who cannot visit their dad.  Suzanne had to test negative to be allowed to just see her husband wearing PPE (protective personal equipment)  through a glass window in the SINU once a day.  She will tell you she is blessed to have the support of many friends and family members from their home town.  

She has asked us to pray for Tim.  Right now, she has a place to stay.  The hospital has asked she be within 15 minutes because of how critical Tim is.   

Dennis and I are just about to put Euclid on the market.  He is sleeping there every night even though we have a security system.  I am at Strong Street.  Thanks to ALL my volunteers who have assisted us in the move.  Packing, unpacking, sorting, organizing, etc., etc.  We could not be here with out all of this support.  These same volunteers have worked tirelessly to get Euclid ready to sell.  We are just down to a few “touch ups” to finalize Euclid.  Everything got backed up while Dennis and I got through Covid ourselves.  These same volunteers dropped off food when I was too sick to even cook.  We were so blessed by all of the prayers, cards, and phone calls.  I know prayers got us through. 

Keep Tim and his family in prayer.  Our Lord hears all of our prayers.

Hebrews 11:1 (NIV)  “Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see”. 

Blessings, and may Christmas be experienced in all of your hearts!
