Remember the wonders he has done,
and the judgments he pronounced.
Mrs. Estelle Raborn is home again from North Oaks. Please be in prayer for her and Mr. Bobby each day.
Pray for two of our grandchildren who will make their first international flights without their parents Monday and Tuesday. They are very experienced travelers having flown regularly since they were babies.

Reading the Bible – Ecc. 5-8 & Psalm 9
Thanks to those who brought red beans and rice. They have been delivered to The Hope Center in Roseland and to God’s Storehouse in Amite. Thank-you for helping meet emergency food needs by local families.
There will be a number of Vacation Bible Schools this week. If you are on Facebook, you can check my posts of VBS opportunities in different area churches or you can check the posts of various churches to see when each one is having VBS this year.
It’s time to begin thinking of the 350 shoeboxes we will be packing at the end of October. Please keep your eyes open for hairbrushes, bath soap, calculators, jump ropes, bandanas, small cars and trucks, and small dolls. You may bring your items to me or to my classroom next to the choir room. We will need your assistance each month for the next five months. Let’s get busy and begin accumulating the items we will need for 350 shoeboxes. Operation Christmas Child is part of Samaritan’s Purse which is under the leadership of Rev. Franklin Graham. Let’s do our part in accumulating and packing items. In November, our church will again be a collection site for area churches, clubs, and individuals. We have ladies available to shop for you if you want to help financially. I will give you another list of items in about six weeks.
There will be no Third Thursday meeting this week or in the next two months. We will resume the Third Thursday of September. I will be happy to share my piano for some sweet hymn singing by everyone.
Have a wonderful Monday. Remember, to love your neighbor as yourself today.
