9 But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you,
for my power is made perfect in weakness.”
Therefore I will boast all the more gladly
about my weaknesses,
so that Christ’s power may rest on me.
10 That is why, for Christ’s sake,
I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships,
in persecutions, in difficulties.
For when I am weak, then I am strong.
Anna Lee would U Plz do a update on my grandchildren’s Mother Kristi Alford . She heard back from her labs concerning a mass they found on her pelvic which had a stem into her ovary . The Drs R discussing some form of treatment . She will know shortly seems as though they R leaning toward radiation . Thk U for adding her to the prayer link ..
Debi Bales wrote the above message. George Bales gave James Rimes permission for me to say that Kristi is going to M.D. Anderson for treatment. Please pray for Kristi, her family, and the great medical staff she will have in Houston.
Please continue to pray for Sherman Cutrer and his family. Sherman is in McComb.
I’m sure you’ve heard the old saying, “When it rains, it pours”, that could describe the Sharkey family and all the health issues they have experienced lately. Let’s “pour on” some prayer for them.
David’s eye issues/treatment seem to have gone on for a long time. Today, he sees the cornea specialist to be sure the new lens is properly placed, removed some stitches, and check the overall health of his eye. David has loved helping in flooded homes. Pray he has not done anything or been exposed to anything that will slow down the healing process.
There were fifteen “young” ladies present to celebrate the birthdays of four ladies who were able to be with us yesterday: Frances Gay, Fay Shoemaker, Ferrie Gene Blackmon, and Sue Connelly.
Many flood victims find it hard to believe how people, like Southern Baptist Disaster volunteers, can give of their time freely and work so hard in homes of people they do not know and charge absolutely nothing! I love to see so many of our churches and God’s people being the church throughout our state. As Dr. Wendall Fortenberry of New Zion Baptist Church so often says, “To God be the glory”.
I’m so thankful for ladies who step up to do what they can in disaster relief. They are eager to do their part. I love the ladies’ sweet, generous spirit and generosity of time, talents, and money. I suppose that deserves a “To God be the glory”.
Thanks to all who have shopped and shopped again for Operation Christmas Child. We are making good progress. Ladies will help with a “shoebox” project Friday and children will help next Wednesday. Missions is coming alive through so many of you who have shopped and contributed. God is pleased because the “shoeboxes” not only represent gifts, but also the opportunity to have Bible lessons. They change young live eternally.
