Thursday

“God has listened;

He has paid attention to the sound of my prayer.”

~Psalm 66:19~

 

Wendell Miller of Hillsdale

Please add Wendell Miller, brother of J.C. Miller, to your prayer list.  Wendell had a heart attack Christmas.  Tests indicate he has blockages where he already has had by-passes.  A decision has been made to not do additional surgery now, but to treat him with medication.

Mr. Edward Garner

Please continue to pray for Mr. Edward Garner.  He has developed some complications.

Gaylon Cutrer

Gaylon is doing better than he was at the first of the week.  Keep him in your prayers.

Mrs. Betty Catherine Hatcher

Please continue to pray for Mrs. Betty Catherine Hatcher as she awaits an appointment on the 30th.  At that time, she hopes to schedule surgery to improve her mobility.

Macy Gueldner

As I was typing a post to let very one know how well Macy has been, she decided we needed a little excitement. So here we are, taking a trip to Baton Rouge in the middle of the night to get a new needle for Macy’s port. Apparently she learned how to unbutton and unzip her pajamas to play with “Buddy”… her port line… and she pulled Buddy out of her port, but not out of her chest. This has accidentally happened before, but we’ve always been across the parking lot from the hospital. I guess Macy wanted a 3 hour round trip ticket to BR tonight, with her Daddy providing the entertainment for the ride (he had a few wisdom teeth pulled today, and he’s a little but silly :)
All will be well in a little bit, when she gets reaccessed… and when I can finally get to bed. 

Margie Morgon

Please add Margie Morgon from Texas to prayer list

Thanks

Cold weather

Many people are now out in the cold fixing broken pipes.  Pray they will not get too wet and cold and become sick.  Pray for safety as people use various forms of heat, often in unsafe ways, to try to stay warm.

Lottie Moon Christmas Offering

We met our goal at church two weeks ago, but it is never too late to contribute to this special offering for missions.  Remember, 100% of the money given goes to support missionaries and their missionary projects.

Dick Van Dike Bible Study

We will meet Friday morning for Bible study at 10:00.  I hope to see you there.  Remember, there is no homework or preparation.  We watch the short video, read Scriptures, and discuss the topic of the week.

Care Packages for Angola Inmates

Plan with your class or work individually to fill some ziplock bags (similar to the bags we do for the migrant workers).  The big difference is that 6,200 are needed.  Get your bags turned in by Sunday morning, January 26th.

Thanks for praying today.  Your prayers mean so much to so many!
