The righteous cry out,

and the Lord hears,

and delivers them from all their troubles.

~Psalm 34:17 HCSB~


Jason Dean is home from the hospital and doing much better.  Let’s thank God for Jason’s improvement.

Mrs. Evelyn Bridges will be moved to another facility soon, but the decision as to where has not been made yet.  Thank God for her improvement since the stroke.

Andy Taylor will be having hand surgery tomorrow in McComb.  Pray for him, his doctor, and the family.

I was going to give you “Miss” Ruby Dillon’s new room number, but I’m not real sure what the first two numbers were.  It may be 1106.  The __06 will get you to her room, which is at the back of the building.  I think our former neighbor in Roseland, Ruby King, is in the same facility, but I didn’t realize that until after we left.


Read the Bible – Daniel 7-9 & Psalm 57


Operation Christmas Child – Bring your highlighters, markers, and crayons to my Sunday School classroom before class this morning.  This next week we will be buying small glue sticks.  I have found the best price at Big Lots in Hammond, but the other stores have good prices when you purchase six or more in a package.  Happy shopping!  It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas in the OCC storage room.  Thanks to David and Miles for helping me organize, sort, and count items twice this week.


It was our pleasure to meet a missionary family in Hammond last night.  They were passing through on their way from Florida to Texas, Oklahoma, and California where they will be leaving children who will all be college freshmen in the fall.  What a joy it was to spend some time with them!  As school begins, please pray for this couple who will be working in another state during this time.  The three young people graduated with our Mallory last month in Europe.  The parents said this step was harder for them than when they were the ones leaving their families to go overseas.
May God lead you to pray for this family, those listed above, and many others I do not know about today.
