Our County Line community gladly said good-bye to the year 2020 New Year’s Eve. There was much celebration with the sound of fireworks in the air. It was a stressful year with record number of hurricanes, almost record rainfall of over 63 inches, and the arrival of the coronavirus with business closings, layoffs, and death of about 6,800 residents.   

Carolyn C. Ferguson has improved and is recuperating at home. Betty S. Stroud remains at Iredell Memorial Hospital.  Faye Stroud continues to rest at home while under treatment for cancer.

Join us in prayer for the Lord’s divine healing and blessings upon Carolyn, Betty, Faye, and  others who are having health problems.  Remember in prayer Dwight Bolin and family and Colby and Lauren Lewis.  Dwight’s wife Julia Ann died unexpectedly Monday of last week at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center.  Lauren’s father, who lived in Louisiana, died last week.

Continue to pray for the many families in our area affected by the coronavirus.
