Friday

“In the same way the Spirit also joins to help in our weakness,

because we do not know what to pray for as we should,

but the Spirit Himself intercedes for us with unspoken groanings.”

~Romans8:26~

Austin Rose is doing better.  He is able to eat a little and to enjoy having company.  The family thanks you so much for your prayers.

Please read “Prayers for Eli” on Facebook.  Eli has been/is a very sick little boy.  As you pray for him, please include prayers for the family.

Some of my aunt’s immediate family were meeting with her doctor at 6:30 this morning to discuss a pacemaker.  Let’s pray for whatever decision was made.  Let’s also be thankful some of the Louisiana portion of the family were able to be in Alabama with Eva Smith.

My niece, Kristin Eudy, came home from her mission trip to Haiti yesterday afternoon.  She left another piece of her heart there.  Pray for Kristin to be able to use her experiences to encourage others to participate in missions.
