In accordance with your great love,
forgive the sin of these people,
just as you have pardoned them
from the time they left Egypt until now.”
Pray for missionary friends who were flying home yesterday and again today.

Read the Bible – II Samuel 13-15 and Psalm 90
If you have been reading the Bible according to the plan I post each day, you will have read 25% of the Bible so far. We are on our 10th book of the Old Testament. We have also read about 33% of Psalms. Best of all, we are learning so much. I find I can always learn more, even if the passage seems very familiar. You can always pick up the reading where we are OR go back to Genesis and start there.
He was despised and rejected by mankind,
a man of suffering,
and familiar with pain.
Like one from whom people hide their faces he was despised,
and we held him in low esteem.
Surely he took up our pain and bore our suffering,
yet we considered him punished by God,
stricken by him,
~Isaiah 53:3-4 (NIV)~

Paperback Bibles – The boxes are back in the church for you to deposit PAPERBACK Bibles which will be given to prisoners at the Tangipahoa Parish Jail. I’ll leave the boxes for a while. There is presently no deadline.
If you do not get in to see the movie, “Facing Darkness” about the medical volunteers who were working with Samaritan’s Purse when they contracted Ebola, there will be another opportunity in about two weeks.
Pray for those having bad weather today.
