”The most important thing is that I complete my mission, the work that the Lord Jesus gave me—to tell people the Good News about God’s grace.”
~Acts 20:24 NCV~
Mr. Jimmy Tolar and family watched the LSU game from his hospital room. They made the most of the day at OLOL. Mr. Jimmy is continuing to improve with the rehab therapy he is receiving. Please continue to pray for Mr. Jimmy and “Miss” Naomi.
Southern Baptist Disaster Relief people are on location and working to help the people who have so many needs caused by Hurricane Michael. Pray for each volunteer that they are able to help in many ways, especially spiritually, in the coming months. The need is great. The volunteers are numerous and trained for the responsibilities they are assuming. May God be glorified because of work done in the wake of the hurricane.
Tonight, the Two Rivers Annual Associational Meeting will be held at Montpelier. Most area Baptist churches will not have regularly scheduled activities so members can be at Montpelier. Monday morning, the Two Rivers WMU will meet at FBC, Kentwood for a quarterly meeting focusing on mission projects. I hope many of you will be able to be in attendance at both of these meetings.
I did some shopping for OCC school supplies. Although I found a plentiful supply of many items, I came home with only one $1.00 calculator. I hope you will be more fortunate than I was with calculator shopping. After Monday, I’ll be setting a day for us to work on the new school supplies and get them packed in shoeboxes. Stay tuned for that date. The November collection dates will be here before long. Let’s have our work finished so we can box our boxes the first week of November. The national collection week is November 12-19. If you have not returned the boxes you packed, please get them to the church in the next couple of weeks. Thanks for your help with this project.If you have any questions about Operation Christmas Child, I will do my best to answer them. If I can’t do that, I know several people who I can refer you to.
Our area churches will soon be collecting stamped Christmas cards for the inmates at the Tangipahoa and St. Helena Parish jails. They will be due to the first Sunday of December. I know of some people who have received a Christmas card that we have given. Both the sender and the receiver were blessed by the cards. The more cards we turn in, the more people who can/will be blessed.
