Do not forget the covenant I have made with you,
and do not worship other gods.
Rather, worship the LORD your God;
it is he who will deliver you
from the hand of all your enemies.”
Thankfulness, Day14: Today, I’m thankful FBC, Kentwood was asked to be a new drop-off location for the collection of shoeboxes. We will be accepting shoeboxes for the next week beginning at 9:00 each day. May God richly bless each child who receives a shoebox and each person involved in preparing and sending them around the world.
Please pray for Jeanna Lee-Newton and her family. Her parents, Ricky and Brenda Russell of Chesbrough, went to check on her after church yesterday and were heartbroken when they saw her. Many prayer are needed for this family.
Sandy Bennett Morgan, a former student, is hospitalized in Baton Rouge with a rare blood disorder. Pray for Sandy, Paul, and Zach as well as other family members and the medical staff caring for her. You may remember Zach’s Lids for Kids, collection of hats for sick children and delivery to numerous hospitals. Sandy got Zach started on this and other ministries to help children with medical needs.
Please pray for Sherman Cutrer. His is hospitalized in Baton Rouge with heart issues. I’m sure your prayers will be appreciated.
Please continue to pray for Kenneth Birch and his back issues. He has a procedure scheduled for December 7th.

This week David and I will have the Third Thursday Gathering at the Cabin. It starts at 6:30 and is always a time of great Christian fellowship.
May you be a blessing to someone today!
