I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus. ~Philippians 3:14 (NIV)~
There have been baptisms and will be more baptisms in our area churches. Yesterday, as I was getting bread and milk a teenager I know from another church proudly told me she will be baptized today in her church. I think that is exciting for her and her family. I know others who have invested in this teen’s life. We never know when decisions will be made, but are always so thankful when they are made. Today, let’s thank God for the decisions that have been made and pray for others to be made. The teen who shared with me yesterday certainly made my day! I pray that today will be a day for more decisions in our Kentwood area.
Thanks to Beth and Mary Anna Lee, as well as David, for helping with Operation Christmas Child yesterday. We had a productive day. It is a real blessing to work with others who have a heart for the “shoebox” ministry. This week I hope some of you will check out Office Depot where notebooks are ten cents and Dirt Cheap where they are twenty-five cents. I bought notebooks at Dirt Cheap and read about the ones at Office Depot. There may be other locations with good prices, but everywhere else I looked they were from $1.00 to $2.99. Pray the availability holds out until people have enough for their shoeboxes and for family use too.

Mr. Frank Erwin is better. I hope he will be able to be in church today. Kenneth Birch and the Dillons were back in church last week. Bryan Tate, Buddy Morris, and David Alford were all there. It’s wonderful to see how God’s people return to church as soon as they physically can after an illness or surgery.
I’m hoping to see you there today. If not at Kentwood, attend at the church of your choice.
