Glory and Praise to God for what He has done and continues to do. Sis. Barbara P. Hampton, who became sick at the AME Church General Conference in Nashville is now in her ninth (9th) month of hospitalization. After spending 33 days in the hospital in Nashville; August 6th she was air-ambulanced to a Tulsa hospital where she remains. To date two of the original abdominal fistula's have not fully healed/closed. Sis Barbara remains in good Spirit and continues to maintain her daily walks about the hospital ward. As of the 2nd week of March she has been placed on a regular/solid food diet and the TPN which had been her primary food/nutrition source via IV has been removed. In the past few months, the leakage from the abdominal fistulas have dropped from a daily measure of 180 ML to currently about 10 ML. There are preliminary discussions about discharging her to continue healing from home. However, the date of her discharge have not been determined. We are aware that, even after her discharge, her healing and recovery will continue through-out 2013 and into the early part of 2014. We are essentially looking at Spring/Summer 2014 before she will be able to resume work and/or continue her education. (She had planned to began her Masters Degree studies in the Fall/2012.) Please be assured that our faith remains strong. We have no doubt that God will continue to see us through this. Our position yet remains that "her body is broken but not our faith". Without a doubt, God has this. My Brothers and Sister, the Lord would have you to know and understand that the "the things which have happened unto us have fallen out for the furtherance of the Gospel". While this and the aforementioned paragraph, in particular, may seem strange. Please be assured that the significance of the bonds - of our health challenges - in Christ, are made manifest throughout the whole church palace, both high and low and in many other places. We appreciate you as you continue to journey with us in faith, prayer and healing. As we journey together, you too will no doubt "wax confident" in the understanding that the LORD is in this. Oh wretched man that I am, who am I that Thou wouldst find favor? Nevertheless, at Thy command I am compelled to admonish "those who are called by HIS name" to "stand still and see the salvation of the LORD". In HIS Spirit. P. O. Box 480901, Tulsa, OK 74148-0901

From: Pastor Dennis J. & Sis. Barbara P. Hampton, 12th Episcopal District AMEC Merry Christmas & Happy New Year! Wishing you health and happiness this Holiday Season and prosperity in the New Year. We value our relationship and thank you for being supportive of us during Sis. Barbara's health challenges and ongoing hospitalization. We thank you for continuing in prayer for her healing and wellness. Please know that Sis. Barbara continues to improve. Yes, she remains in the hospital since her initial July 3rd hospitalization and surgeries while attending the AMEC General Conference, Nashville, TN. We praise God that her wound was closed November 12th - (after having been open since July 9th). However, of the initial seven (7) Abdominal Fistulas (AF) there are two (2) AF still leaking. We are thankful that assessments indicate that one of the remaining AF's is almost healed/closed and the other AF continues to slowly heal. We continue to move forward knowing that "God got this". November 1st we happily celebrated Sis. Barbara's 50th birthday from the St. John Medical Center Tulsa, OK. Subsequently, we joyfully celebrated our 15th Wedding Anniversary - December 20th - from SJMC. Sis Barbara continues to walk daily, is on a solid food diet and remains in good Spirit. Additionally, the Lord continues to give me strength as I juggle - among other things - issues surrounding Sis. Barbara's health & wellness, the demands of the Pastorate and Seminary Classes. Again, we thank you for journeying with us in prayer and expressions of love during such a time as this. Please be assured that "her body is broken but not our faith" In His Spirit.

I have lost my Brother. We had known each other ever since we were 4 years old because we played Little League Baseball together and also because our fathers served in the Army Reserves together. Quincy is 1 of my friends who encouraged me to go into the Ministry. His 2 God-Sons' Father was the other friend - Rev Brian "BC" Crawford. One week before he died he met my late wife Mrs. Brenda Kay Friley - now they are both in Heaven patiently awaiting my arrival. Rev BJ Friley - Vicksburg, MS

To God Be the Glory for What HE is bringing Sis Barbara & I through. The surgery was successful. Sis Barbara's wound is closed. Praise God, Praise God, Praise God. We were apprised in advance that the services of a plastic surgeon were required to close the wound because the flesh would not meet. She is in ICU with some degree of breathing challenges. These challenges are expected to be less of a problem in the next day or so and as her body heals. Breathing is aided by machine and tubes have been inserted down her throat. In the days ahead, her body has to heal, stomach muscles which haven't been used for over four months have to be strengthened and her body has to be slowly and systematically re-introduced to food. She has not had food on her stomach since July 9th. We will continue to keep you abreast of Sis Barbara's progress. Thank you for your prayers. Rev. Dennis J. Hampton P O Box 480901 Tulsa, OK 74148

Greetings, Sis Barbara & I are thankful for your many prayers and expressions of support since her July 3rd hospitalization at Nashville General Hospital during the General Conference and her ongoing Tulsa hospitalization. Sis Barbara was transferred via Air Ambulance to a Tulsa hospital August 6th. She is still in the hospital and to date her wound remains open. She is being fed intravenously. Therefore, it has been since July 3rd since she has had food to eat. She also continues to do her daily walks. Since her initial hospitalization she has gone into the Operating Room approximately 25 times. We are blessed that God has brought her through each surgery. We are pleased to report that surgery has been scheduled for Monday November 12th at 1:00 PM cst. The surgery is to close off the abdominal fistulas and close her wound. Please be assured that Sis. Barbara and I continue to be in good Spirit and our faith is strong. Sis. Barbara's reply to a Sister in Christ, who asked how she is doing, best speaks to our Faith Position when she stated: "My body is broken, but not my Faith". I will keep you abreast of Sis. Barbara's progress. In HIS Spirit. Rev. Dennis J. Hampton P O Box 480901 Tulsa, OK 74148 Phone: 918-809-3487

05-07-2012 30:15 Greetings, Allow me to on behalf of my cousin Sean Pillay and the family to extend a word of thanks to all those who took the time to write a note of support /call or send an sms message to our family during our time of bereavement. Men of our Zion like retired Elder Alton Paris just dropping a simple note: thinking of you and your family - making a world of difference during our time of challenge when death entered suddenly. Bishops and General Officers not being too busy to extend a word of support. It is gestures like these that that conveys a message that "your labour is not in vain". Times without number I have sent information regarding our Zion as my contribution in keeping he banner of Christianity and African Methodism flying high. Response like these only encourage the effort to keep on keeping on, someone IS listening, someone IS reading and most important of all, someone cares and appreciate the little we do Stay blessed and keep on loving.
