Be thankful the snow that is falling in Kentwood is not sticking and should not be a problem.
Emilie Faye Gelain McKenzie
Just letting everyone know that we were home and doing well, thanks everyone for the prayers.
Leslie, Stephanie, Erica & Emilie
Ernest “Cete” and Ruby Dillon
“Miss” Ruby is progressing well now. Thank-you for praying for her. Mr. “Cete” has been having an eye problem since the fall and has had procedures done to correct the problem. He will have another surgery in the near future. Continue to pray for him.
Wayne should be able to leave the hospital in Denver and go to Blake’s home until he is able to fly back this way. Pray for him and his family as he makes the big move following Tuesday’s surgery. Brent has already come home.
Sim Bankston, Chuck Baham, & Jason Duhe
Sim: He came home from the hospital on Thursday afternoon. He is feeling a good bit better. He is now taking antibiotics by mouth and will be followed closely by the doctor. Once the infection in his colon is cleared, he will have surgery. Keep him in your prayers that his infection responds to this antibiotic so he can receive the necessary medical attention that he needs.
Chuck: Chuck went into a regular room on Thursday afternoon. He is undergoing some physical therapy. They got him up 3 times today. The doctor that did the colon surgery wants him to get up as often as possible. Lessie will be checking with the orthopedist tomorrow to see if the leg should be moved that much at this time. She feels that it may be a bit much on chuck because it hurts him so to move his foot and leg. If the bone doc okays the moving around, then she will feel better about all of it herself. Chuck is jaundiced. The doctor said that it could be because the liver was so badly bruised in the wreck, or it could be because of the trauma of the surgery he has had. Either way, we need to pray that the liver heals itself and causes him no more problems. Lessie said she counted his staples on his stomach today. He has 43. 43 people – that seems like a lot to me…lol. this afternoon they told chuck that he can begin eating most everything that he wants. he is happy about that, but he is nervous about eating. He was so sick for so long, when he ate, that he is scared that he will become nauseated.
Jacob Duhe: fairly good news on him. he may get to leave the hospital tomorrow. pray for him because he is so upset over causing the accident that he can’t seem to move on…everytime larry or i go to check on him, he asks us to please tell chuck that he is sorry….it makes me so sad to see him beating himself up for what was truly an accident. He is still facing a long recovery. time
Good News Club (Texas)
Thanks for your prayers. Things went well today despite the fact that one child threw up just before the Bible lesson, the custodian ran the cleaning machine pretty much the entire time I was speaking , and two of our leaders received parking tickets. The sacrifices we make to share the Gospel! Ha! I do so appreciate your prayers. This is so fun!

“At the name of Jesus every knee should bow…” Philippians 2:10
A LADY WOKE one morning, looked in the mirror, and noticed that she had only three hairs on her head…
“Well,” she said, “I think I’ll braid my hair today.” So she did, and she had a wonderful day.
The next day she woke up, looked in the mirror and noticed she had only two hairs on her head. “Hmmm,” she said, “I think I’ll part my in the middle today.” So she did, and she had a great day.
The next day, she woke up, looked in the mirror, and noticed that she had only one hair on her head. “Well,” she said, “I think I’ll wear my hair in a ponytail.” So she did, and she had a grand day.
The next day, she woke up, looked in the mirror and saw that there wasn’t a single hair on her head. “Yea,” she exclaimed. “I don’t have to fix my hair today!”

Finally, brethren, whatever things are true,
whatever things are noble,
whatever things are just,
whatever things are pure,
whatever things are lovely,
whatever things are of good report,
if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy–
meditate on these things.”
Have a great preparation day for Sunday!
