“This is what the LORD Almighty says:
Administer true justice;
show mercy and compassion to one another.
Do not oppress the widow or the fatherless,
the alien or the poor.
In your hearts do not think evil of each other.’
(I think these two verses give us all something to work to improve this week!)
David Wickham’s surgery will begin soon. I trust your prayers for him have already started. How about trying something special for him today? Write his name on three pieces of paper and put them in three different places you see in your house often. For example, put one on the door to the refrigerator. As you see the papers today, pray for David, his family, and the medical staff.
Mrs. Flo Hatcher and her family seem to be on a roller-coaster ride. Please pray for them as they face a new week.
Susan Rimes was able to be at Sunday School and church for the first time in a couple months. Please pray for relief from her problems
Mrs. Catherine Yarborough is still at Greensburg. Pray with her that she can go home soon.

Disaster Relief Teams are being sent to South Carolina to help people overcome the problems from the recent rain/floods. Thank God for those who have made themselves available. Pray for protection for each volunteer as they serve in the name of Jesus. If you are trained in mud-out, you are especially needed. If you are not trained for disaster relief, make a decision now to be trained the next time the opportunity arrises.
Third Thursday at the Cabin
We will gather at the cabin at 6:30 Thursday for another evening of Christian fellowship, a meal, a devotional, and some music. If these things might bring encouragement to you, please join us.
Washcloths, toothpaste. and hair brushes are the items we need the most to complete our shoeboxes. Please help us get enough for all the boxes we are sending this year.
We need stamps for Christmas cards for local prisoners. Please buy stamps by the books and turn in. I already have the cards. We’ll be collecting these for about six weeks.
How wonderful it was to be at The Lord’s Church last night for our associational meeting! Not only did we get to hear/see reports from various groups, hear a pastor from Florida share, hear a combined choir, and enjoy some refreshments, but we also enjoyed seeing many pastor friends and members of area churches. May God bless the effort of our people as we strive to serve Him better this year than ever before. May we do this through a renewal of our prayer efforts and then, our actions.
