Friday

“In the same way the Spirit also joins to help in our weakness,

because we do not know what to pray for as we should,

but the Spirit Himself intercedes for us with unspoken groanings.”

~Romans8:26~

Austin Rose is doing better.  He is able to eat a little and to enjoy having company.  The family thanks you so much for your prayers.

Please read “Prayers for Eli” on Facebook.  Eli has been/is a very sick little boy.  As you pray for him, please include prayers for the family.

Some of my aunt’s immediate family were meeting with her doctor at 6:30 this morning to discuss a pacemaker.  Let’s pray for whatever decision was made.  Let’s also be thankful some of the Louisiana portion of the family were able to be in Alabama with Eva Smith.

My niece, Kristin Eudy, came home from her mission trip to Haiti yesterday afternoon.  She left another piece of her heart there.  Pray for Kristin to be able to use her experiences to encourage others to participate in missions.

(In honor of those from Spring Creek who trusted God with their lives last night! –

The best message a mama can get is when her child tells her that she just got saved tonight at church camp.)

“This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person.

The old life is gone; a new life has begun!”

~2 Corinthians 5:17 NLT~

We are thankful for the rain, almost two inches, we received Saturday afternoon.  God’s timing is always right!
