For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son,

that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

~John 3:16~


A great report: Dee Dee B. Matthews, niece of Betty Simpson and Ora Lee Wilson, has shown good improvement.  She still has a lot of issues, but is certainly better than she was right after the accident.  Keep praying.



Yesterday, I was asked to request prayer for someone, but not to give a name.  Today, I have been asked to report that Angela Headrick is the person who had a thyroid test that was inconclusive.  Results from a more recent biopsy have not given results yet.  In the meantime, you are asked to pray for Angela as she awaits the report.



Mrs. Bessie Hayden is still at home and waiting to go back to the hospital in a few weeks.  Please pray for her diabetes related circulation problem.



Adrian Phillips is having a problem with another buildup of fluid.  Pray medication will solve his problem.

The group at the cabin last night included two new guests as well as representation from eight different churches.  We were so blessed by all present, the devotional shared by Bro. Darryl, and the wonderful music shared by James Rimes and Sherman Cutrer.  Sherman has had some serious health issues and numerous (I think he said 13) surgeries since he was last at the cabin sharing with us.  It was another great Third Thursday.  Feel free to join us sometime.



The Friday Morning Bible Study will meet at 10:00 this morning in the fellowship hall of FBC, Kentwood.



Tomorrow morning at 9:00, we will meet in the fellowship hall to begin preparation of items for Samaritan’s Purse Operation Christmas Child.  Everyone is invited to spend the morning with us.  Working together on this project will help get us started on our collection process for the Christmas season deliveries around the world.  Children, K-5, the age group of the Wednesday night missions class are especially encouraged to come.  It is not too late to bring some of the items previously listed.  They can be left in the red basket at the church or left in the fellowship hall TODAY.



Another group of Bibles were delivered to the church yesterday.  Three calendars were brought to the cabin last night.  These items will be used by inmates of the Tangipahoa Parish Jail.  I will get these items to the group that ministers there on Thursday mornings.  Thank-you for doing your part in helping to collect items.  Pray for the many men and women there.
