Last night the children learned about missionaries who helped people purify water, put in wells, tutor children, and provided health supplies to those who are sick. It was fun to watch them do activities and play games as they learned. We also signed a birthday card for a MK and completed a candy craft. Hurry up Wednesdays!
Plan to be a part of this special event Saturday at 6 P.M.
I’m as excited as a child looking forward to this Christmas (Party)!

Linda K. Graves of East Fork is being pampered at her sister and brother-in-law’s home. Thank God for family members who can and will step up when needed.
Services for Jimmy Wall will be Saturday at Spring Creek Baptist Church from 9:30 – 11:00 when there will be a brief service and a private burial. The family requests no food and no burial. Please pray for the family.
Continue to pray for our country as we move closer to election day.
Operation Christmas Child is one of the greatest mission projects we do at FBC, Kentwood. During the last few months, we have collected socks, hats, notebooks, flashlights, erasers, dolls, brushes, and many other items that we will pack into shoeboxes Saturday at 6 P.M. Yesterday, we did one of our final tasks, filling zipper storage bags with candy. I thank all who supplied candy and those who came to put the candy into bags. What fun it is to think of children opening their boxes and finding their bags of candy and lots of other things. Most of all, I’m thankful we are packing Jesus into each box and providing children with the opportunity to learn about Jesus through classes that will be taught in the following weeks. See you Saturday!
Thank you for reading and praying. Also, thank you for all you do!

Stan Williams, son of J.L. and Wanzie WIlliams, traveled to Houston yesterday and will begin a week of treatment while hospitalized at M.D. Anderson. Then, he will come home until time for the next treatment, until he has completed six treatments. (Thanks to David Brabham for the update.) . Please pray for Stan and his family as he is treated for lymphoma.
David and I got to briefly visit Linda K. Graves yesterday afternoon in Kentwood. Linda was released from Ochsner yesterday, after having two procedures which will hopefukky work for her. She was home long enough to pack her things to go to live with her sister in Mandeville. Linda cannot be alone in case her problem returns. She has a wonderful attitude. David was able to lead us in a sweet prayer. She reminded me that she will be only a phone call away.
Linda K. Graves of East Fork said she will have another procedure in the morning. That may tell doctors what they need to do next. Keep praying. (Betty Simpson reminded me this morning of the solo Linda sang at the WMU meeting Monday. It was “Pray for Me”!)
Shira Easley is now in Greensburg for the next 21 days to get her built up and ready for the next step. Pray for her too.
I do not list the elections daily, but it’s in my thoughts and prayers. It’s less than three weeks away.
I want to end this with something very positive. The church chimes are back in operation! I heard about them Monday and heard them myself before missions last night. Oh, how good it was to hear them again. Thank-you to those who helped get them ringing again!
