“Rejoice with those who rejoice,

weep with those who weep.”

~Romans 12:15 ESV~




Beth Brabham is doing well following her gall bladder procedure.  Pray she continues to do well.




Mrs. Betty Catherine Hatcher is in room 5404 (if I remember correctly) at North Oaks.  When she is ready to leave there, she will be going to Bell Maison in Hammond to continue improving.




Henry, Virginia, Erica, and Emily McKenzie spent yesterday afternoon helping with OCC.  We are thankful for others who realize the impact “shoeboxes” make on families around the world.  Barbara Hutchinson can to get some totes and one more shoebox.  every box packed will find its future home in the coming months.  I recently purchased some felt rectangles and some colorful foam, but I don’t remember where it was.  If you see some as you shop, please purchase some and/or tell me where to look.  Thanks.  The felt makes into the cutest pencil pouches and the foam makes wonderful toys.

August tends to have some sales on school supplies.  It’s a good time to make purchases for OCC.  It’s is a perfect time to buy composition books, pencils, pens, big erasers, calculators, pencil sharpeners, etc.  Look around and listen as God “tells” you what He wants you to ship this year.
