Saturday

With this in mind, we constantly pray for you, that our God may make you worthy of his calling, and that by his power he may bring to fruition your every desire for goodness and your every deed prompted by faith.  

We pray this so that the name of our Lord Jesus may be glorified in you, and you in him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ.

2Thessalonians 1:11-12

 

When we go to the hospital or nursing home, I often wonder who is there that we would visit is only we knew they were there.  I remember the day when there was a patient list available for visitors, but understand why that is not the case at the present time.  This leads me to say that even though we saw three friends at the St. Helena Hospital/ Nursing Home Tuesday, there were at least two more we would have visited if we had only know they were there.  Mrs. Anne Hurst is in the hospital and Mrs. Judy Purvis in the nursing home.  (I forgot the new last name for the second lady and didn’t ask Rusty or Becky because I think many of you will recognize her Purvis name better.)   I appreciate receiving phone calls from some of you who help me know about friends and family members that I need to list here.

 

Read the Bible – Acts 5-6 & Psalm 121

 

The Two Rivers  meeting planned for Sunday night at FBC, Kentwood has been postponed a week due to “Nate”.  I assume we may revert to our usual Sunday night schedule.

 

Yesterday, Henry and Virginia McKenzie and David and I worked on counting and sorting the items we now have for Operation Christmas Child “shoeboxes”.  We have what we need for most items, which is very good.  The key items we still could use are washcloths, pencils. and pens.  Since I called the names of those who helped yesterday, I would also like to say Miles Hatchel, Jennie Hatchel, Diane Simons, Ora Lee Wilson, and Summer Clemsons have also helped.  Many of you have  contributed.  This is an enormous project that is possible only with your support.  Thank-you all for supporting Operation Christmas Child!  Check the poster by the piano to see how we progress on collecting postage to ship the boxes.

 

I’m thankful to hear “Nate” will not be as strong as some of the past hurricanes.  Let’s continue to pray for those in the path of the storm wherever it choses to go.

 

Make today a blessing to someone by your words and actions today.
