For the word of God is alive and active.
Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.
~Hebrews 4:12 (NIV)~
(This is the Scripture my sister shared with me the day of David’s bone marrow surgery this week.)
Jimmy Tolar has made good improvement while in rehab. The family is hoping he will be able to come home soon. Please continue to pray for the Tolar family.
Every report I received about the senior adult revival was good. I’m sorry we were not able to attend this year. I hope many of you were able to attend.
The backpacks packed in Youth on Mission have arrived in Appalachia. The class was able to study the area and the need for help too. Thanks to those who are there making delivery of items for the people there. I don’t know who receives the biggest blessing – the ones who donated items, the ones who delivered the items, or the ones who received the items. I think it was a win, win, win situation! Let’s all plan to help again next year in some way.
Friday, seventeen OCC shoeboxes were packed. If you paid to ship two, three, or five boxes, you boxes are ready for shipment. This week, those who paid shipping on ten or eleven boxes will have their boxes packed. If you would like to help with the packing, please let me know this morning at church. I get excited to see all the red and green boxes. Some of you have recently turned in boxes. I’ll try to get a new count of completed boxes this week.
