A person’s wisdom yields patience;
it is to one’s glory to overlook an offense.
Tricia Doss had foot surgery. Pray for a good healing period and a healthier foot.
Mrs. Bessie Hayden did not have surgery as planned today. The doctor told her it will be best to have laser surgery in one eye and nothing in the other one. Keep praying for her improved vision.
Harrell Sharkey still is on oxygen and have lots of PT ahead. Keep him in your prayers.
Mrs. Mimi Sneed called yesterday to request prayer for her son, Bobby. His health has not been good for a while.
By noon today, David and I will have had five appointments so far this week. His surgery yesterday went well, but the eye has a patch on it until the doctor removes the patch this morning. Hopefully, David’s vision in that eye will go from all fuzzy to clear. Pray for some vision in his left eye.

It’s my favorite night of the week – Children’s Missions! Boys and girls from age 3-grade 5 are welcome to meet with us from 6-7 P.M. Among other things, we will be signing a birthday card for a MK. For you adults who don’t know, MK means missionary kid. We’lll also pray for him as he helps his parents in their ministry.

Do you remember the song “Love and marriage, the go together like a horse and carriage”? With the prayer link, we might say “read and pray”. They go together in the same way.
