“Finally, brethren, pray for us,
that the word of the Lord may run swiftly and be glorified,
just as it is with you.”
~2 Thessalonians 3:1~
On Mission in Kentwood had another rewarding day. Each person who participated was richly blessed. Several projects were completed for members of our church, but most were for people who are not members. What a fantastic outreach!
Pray for Mrs. Parmys Stegall as she continues to heal from a broken shoulder. She has a good attitude concerning her present limitations.
Pray for Mrs. Susie Wales as she continues to have tests checking for heart problems. She hasn’t let that slow her down and as her usual fun spirit.
Pray for Richard Dunn. He has a two week wait before more tests and treatment. As you pray for Richard, pray for Cathy and the other family members.

“Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves.
Do what it says. …
The man who looks intently
into the perfect law that gives freedom,
and continues to do this,
not forgetting what he has heard,
but doing it-he will be blessed in what he does”
(James 1:22,25, NIV).
A Word From Billy Graham »
Solomon had religion. He built the greatest temple the world has ever known. … But God warns through Isaiah the Prophet, “Bring no more futile sacrifices; Incense is an abomination to Me. The New Moons, the Sabbaths, and the calling of assemblies–I cannot endure iniquity and the sacred meeting” (Isaiah 1:13).
Some of you have religion, but you … do not know Christ for yourself. You have depended on your parents’ religion, or you have depended on a church relationship, or you have depended on a religious exercise that you went through. But somehow, deep in your heart, you know that you are a long way from God and that sin is in your heart. Religion without a personal encounter with Christ will not save your soul or bring the peace that your soul longs for.
… Solomon said, “Fear God and keep His commandments. — For God will bring every work into judgment, including every secret thing, whether good or evil” (Ecclesiastes 12:13-14). … His experience and experiments led him back to God. He said, “Remember now your Creator in the days of your youth” (Ecclesiastes 12:1). You need to find real pleasure, real joy, real satisfaction, in Jesus Christ.
I hope you have the real pleasure, real joy, and real satisfaction that is found in Jesus Christ.
