The Words of the Jenkins Family from 2009
We sincerely ask that you pray for Mrs. Nora Spurgin who will be undergoing surgery on Monday, November 12th in Bridgeport. She has a condition called diverticulitis and the doctors are predicting return to full and complete health. We visited her last week, she is very strong and faithful (she actually looks great) however this came through such a faithful attitude and the prayers and support of Dr. Hugh Spurgin her husband and so many other brothers and sisters. She expressed so much gratitude for God, True Parents and True Family when we saw her.
Dr. and Mrs. Spurgin are very early pioneers of the American movement and most loved and respected by True Parents. Father assigned them directly to head up the BIA which is an advanced academy for education from grade school thru high school. The school has both BCs and non Unification youth as students. It is a fine academy that is so precious to True Parents. When Father talks about American women -- he usually chooses Mrs. Spurgin. He has always challenged her directly because he knows that American women are strong and often made of the stuff (faith, endurance and heart for family) that allowed America to be established. No matter how much Father challenges her -- she is always first to attend and support True Parents with a smile. She loves True Parents so much. As former President of WFWP for America Nora has faithfully walked the path in following True Parents with Absolute Faith, Absolute Love and Absolute Obedience.
As an elder and pioneer of America we ask all members to pray for her. Nora's surgery is scheduled to begin at 10:15 am on Monday, January 12 in St. Vincent's Medical Center in Bridgeport.
Thank you Hugh and Nora, we are confident that through this your health and spirit will be strengthened and we believe as you overcome trials with faith - you are representing America overcoming.
All of the American movement loves you!!
