Today, I want to tell you that the number of flu cases seems to be growing. If you haven’t had a flu shot, get on and be extra careful until it takes effect.
“Miss” Ruby Dillon has done fantastically after her eye surgery. Please keep praying for her. Mr. “Cete” has been a good caregiver, as always. What an amazing couple!
We were asked to move the Operation Christmas Child “shoeboxes” from their usual location. This is usually a good place to leave the boxes until November, but due to the expected size of the crowds for two events Sunday morning and evening, the boxes could be stored in a better location. Three of us got organized and started yesterday before prayer meeting. We had lots of good help after prayer meeting. It seemed like no time and the boxes were packed and moved to another location. Thanks to several youth and some adults, the task was taken care of quickly. We now have some newly trained packers to help us later on. There is often a “silver lining” to the clouds in our lives. God certainly provided. We are thankful.
TWO SPECIAL EVENTS SUNDAY AT FBC, Kentwood.

TWO MORE COMMENTS ABOUT SHOEBOXES
- We are still collecting the postage for the shoeboxes. It is only $10.00 per box and includes postage and additional expenses such as a Bible, in the proper language, and a special booklet ‘The Greatest Journey”, also in the proper language, for the older boys and girls. What a great way to spend $10.00!
- Dirt Cheap in Amite, and probably in other locations, has some wonderful, colorful dinosaurs this week. They are larger than your fist and are selling for $.25 each. If you can, pick up some in the next few days and bring them to me at church Sunday.
READ AND WRITE SCRIPTURE TODAY.
October 27 – Psalm 139: 7-12
Have a great day!
