Wednesday

In the same way, faith by itself,

if it is not accompanied by action, is dead.

~James 2:17~

 

Betty Simpson is having a problem with bursitis in her left shoulder.  Let’s pray she gets to feeling better real soon.

 

Jeffrey Brister‘s surgery for complete shoulder replacement went well.  Now, the time for recovery and therapy will begin.  Pray he gets full use of his shoulder and arm.

 

Bobby Forbes is home and feeling so much better.  Thank you for your prayers.  Keep praying for the lab reports that are due later this week.

 

I’ve been watching some weather maps showing a renewed Gulf storm named Harvey.  It looks like we are in for lots of rain.  Let’s pray He blows himself out before reaching us.

Children in Action will meet at 6 P.M. tonight at FBC, Kentwood.

The Friday Morning Bible Study will NOT meet this week.  We will meet the following Friday at 10 A.M.

We had a nice “Young” Ladies’ Birthday Party yesterday.  Next month, we will meet September 26th.

Don’t forget your items for the Fall Food Round-Up.  Leave them under the stairwell to the church office.  The truck will be here September 18th to pick up our items for the LA Baptist Children’s Home.

Items for Operation Christmas Child can be left in my classroom or in the box under the stairs to the balcony.  This week, we are collecting bandanas.  The following week we will focus on brushes and combs.  We could use a few more boxes of markers, highlighters, crayons, pencils, pens, and calculators.                                                               We are progressing well.  We have been working a little each week to keep everything organized.  I get excited every time I get to work there.   If you want to help some, please let me know.

 

Have a wonderful day today.

For in the gospel the righteousness of God is revealed—

a righteousness that is by faith from first to last,

just as it is written:

“The righteous will live by faith.”

Bobby Forbes is better and in a regular room.  He will probably be ready to return to his home in Russelltown by Tuesday.  Continue to pray for him and his family.

Jeffrey Brister will have a complete shoulder replacement Tuesday.  This is another step in recovery from his motorcycle accident.

Today the Phillip Harrells celebrated their 76th anniversary.  He said they had company off and on during the day.  I thankful to God for the way He scheduled their guests so the company did not tire them out.

The work done at The Lighthouse today looks good.  I hope many of you get to stick your head in tomorrow so you can see the improvement that was made today.

 

Don’t forget to bring you $1.00 calculators tomorrow.  If you forget them, bring them later.  This coming week, we will be buying colorful bandanas .  They can be turned in on the 20th.  Those working with Operation Christmas Child will appreciate your participation.  More than that, the children who receive a shoebox will be super thrilled.

 

Don’t forget your food for the Fall Food Roundup for Louisiana Baptist Children’s Home.  The truck will be in Kentwood early on September 18th.

 

Thanks for reading and praying.

“Near the Cross”

 

Operation Christmas Child

  • We were hoping to have enough pencils & pens to give each child a whole pack. I think we are a little short of that at this time.
  • This week we are collecting $1.00 calculators for the oldest children who will receive shoeboxes.  These are usually found at dollar stores and sometimes Walmart.  We bought the ones at one Walmart for $.88.  Check around.
  • Next week, we will be collecting bandanas of various colors.  We have found them from $.50 – $2.00.  Shop around.

 

The “Young” Ladies’ Birthday Party will be Tuesday of next week.  We had a good group last month and hope for a larger group next week.  Come celebrate August birthdays at The Cafe with us.  “Birthday ladies” get a free meal.

Last night, the boys and girls spent much of their time in Bible Drill class praying in a circle to thank God for many things and to learn how to use our Bibles.  We had a great class!  They learned so much.

 

Let’s continue to both pray and do for others.

Saturday

My soul is weary with sorrow;

strengthen me according to your word.

~Psalm 119:28~

 

Yesterday, in a local store, a worker asked me if I prayed.  When I said yes, she asked me to pray for her elementary age son, Ezekiel, who is possibly facing heart surgery.  I told her I was just leaving a Bible study on Ezekiel 20, so I could easily remember his name when I pray.  She would appreciated your prayers too as they see another doctor for a second opinion.

 

Read the Bible – I Chronicles 25-29 & Psalm 70

 

Friday Morning Bible Study – We will not meet again until September 1st.

 

“Must I Go, and Empty-Handed?”

 

Thank-you for praying today.  Don’t forget your Operation Christmas Child items tomorrow.  We’re collecting pens and pencils this week.
