But love your enemies, do good to them, and lend to them without expecting to get anything back.
Then your reward will be great, and you will be children of the Most High, because he is kind to the ungrateful and wicked.
Shelbie Travis is scheduled to return home today and a long stay at two different hospitals. She will have home health checking on her twice a day. Thank you for all your prayers for her.

Maddie’s Miracle points our the current needs for Mattie, the granddaughter of a high school classmate and friend. The family certainly appreciates your prayers.

Last night, I had the wonderful opportunity to speak with the youth from FBC, Kentwood about Operation Christmas Child. Then, they folded 200 shoeboxes in about 20 minutes. I must tell you they were wonderful listeners and hard workers. They even moved the boxes to the room we will use for our packing party on November 4th. Those who work with them regularly and their parents can be very proud of the fine young people they are.
The Senior Adult Revival begins this morning with coffee and choir practice at 9:30 with the meeting at 10:00 followed by lunch. Bro. Randy from Mt. Nebo will be the speaker. This is always a wonderful opportunity.
Thursday is “Take Your Bible to School Day”. I think the name explains itself well.
Read the Bible – Luke 19-20 & Psalm 119:65-96

Thanks to all who have contributed to the Georgia Barnett Offering for Louisiana missions and the shipping charges for the “shoeboxes“.

Thanks to those of you who brought items for Operation Christmas Child this week. We are getting close to having all we need. If you would like to know some items we could use more of, please check the blue clipboard on the table under the balcony stairwell. You can sign for what you choose to purchase. I will replace the block with a updated list next Sunday. Thanks to the ladies who worked with me this week in sorting, counting, and preparing your donations for the packing party.
I look forward to the opportunities God has for us this week.
