Obituary for his father, from David R. Buhl
I’m not sure if anyone down there will remember him, but I thought I’d send his obituary along anyway. My father, George S. Buhl, born in Philadelphia in 1916 went home to be with Our Lord on January 25th, 2011. He was the son of Lottie H. Buhl, who was a longtime member of Tenth Church. She died in 1977. He accepted Christ around the time he was 12 or 14 under the ministry of Donald Grey Barnhouse. Read more »
I am a dental hygiene student at Harcum College in Bryn Mawr. This semester we are starting to see patients. We offer dental services that include x-rays and full dental cleaning and dental health care for all $30 and under. Senior citizens get these services all for $10.

You can contact me at 410-251-9513 or email Nicole King.

Over at Gospel Coalition, they've posted a helpful piece by Ramez Atallah, General Secretary of the Bible Society of Egypt, to guide our praying about the turmoil engulfing Egypt.
He starts with this interesting report: "Christians and Muslims have been united as never before defending their homes on overnight shifts (due to the lack of police security). This is resulting for many to make friends with neighbors they never knew, and there is a real sense of camaraderie, which we never had before" and goes on to describe some of the present hardships and suggests ways to pray. Well worth the read.
