Allergy Alert: ‘Tree and Weed Pollen’ in the HIGH range for Wednesday                                https://forsyth.cc/EAP/pollen.aspx

 

 Reminder: Fall begins ONE week from today (Sept 22)

 

“I pray, I obey” David Yonggi Cho, pastor of the world’s largest Pentecostal megachurch in Seoul, South Korea, passed away Tuesday morning. Pastor Cho was 85.

At the time of his death, Cho had been receiving medical treatment for a brain hemorrhage he suffered from in 2020.  Cho was born in 1936 to a Buddhist family and lived during the Korean War. He converted to Christianity at 17 when doctors told him he would die from a serious case of tuberculosis. Cho credits God for his “miraculous” recovery from the disease.

BTW: South Korea has one of the world’s most robust Christian communities, and megachurches grew in popularity in the years following the Korean war.
