Friday

For we did not follow cleverly devised stories when we told you about the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ in power, but we were eyewitnesses of his majesty.

~2 Peter 1:16~

 

Saturday night, Two Rivers will hold a Harvest Revival meeting at Greenlaw Baptist Church at 6:30 P.M.

 

The Third Thursday Gathering at the Cabin last night was special in several ways.  We had our customary great meal, a first-time guest who came with Gibby and Katera McMillan, a 90 year old Mr. Harlon Toney making my newly tuned piano talk, talented James Rimes sharing about his songs before he sang each one, guests from six churches, and a devotional led by David that tied the whole night together.  It was another fantastic night in the cabin!  We’ll meet again next month.

 

Friday morning Bible study meets at 10 this morning in the FBC fellowship hall.

 

Read the Bible – Romans 3-4, Psalm 134, and video “Atonement” found at BibleProject.com.

Thursday

Why, my soul, are you downcast?

Why so disturbed within me?

Put your hope in God,

for I will yet praise him,

my Savior and my God.

Psalm 42:11

 

Lampton Dean Titus, son of Tedd and Kayla, had surgery yesterday. This morning, doctors are working hard to control/correct a problem.  Your prayers are needed.

Update on Lampton Dean…….. I know it’s early but please send lots of prayers!!! The doctor just told us that Lampton is starting to lose blood flow in one of his main arteries in his groin/leg where they have one of his main IV lines at. He was starting to lose color in his leg and it’s starting to get really cold so it has to be moved now!! They are having to move it cause if they leave it he could lose his leg. They are going to be doing a small procedure to move that IV line with risk of possible blood clots. We will be going to see him in a little bit whenever they let us. We will update everyone as soon as we know how everything went and how he’s doing. Please send lots of prayers that everything goes smoothly and that the feeling and color come back in his leg!! Our little man has already been through enough!! 💙💛#LamptonStrong💛💙

Mrs. Annie Bell Harrell is in Lakeview, not St. Tammany.  Doctors have identified pneumonia and are continuing with more tests.  Please be praying.

Mrs. Annie Bell Harrell is in St. Tammany because of chest pains.  Hopefully, the doctor will know more tomorrow.

Maddie’s Miracles – Maddie is the granddaughter of a friend and former classmate.  You can read the posts on Facebook.  She is a beautiful young lady.

Maddie went back for her check up today (Monday). The pneumonia is still there and has moved. The pulmonologist said her lungs sound like a hurricane. She will take ten more days of antibiotics and see if it gets any better. She can’t get back on her kidney meds or get her port fixed until this clears up. Please pray for it to be gone!! She is still very tired and wheezy but no fevers so that’s a blessing. Thanks to all our prayer warriors! God is so very good ALL the time.

 

Bro. Mike Stafford, pastor of Greenlaw Baptist Church, is in OLOL undergoing some unplanned medical tests.  Please pray for him.

Josiah Huckaby – grandson of Bubba and Linda Huckaby

I can’t believe our little man turned 7 months old yesterday! Seems so crazy that it’s been that long since we started this journey. He is doing good & is off of the invasive ventilator. He is still on the non-invasive ventilator but definitely an improvement from where he was last week. He still hasn’t had his heart cath. They have rescheduled it for tomorrow. This is our 4th time being on the schedule so hopefully he won’t get bumped tomorrow for any emergencies. We are ready to have a clearer picture of what is going on. God is good & He’s got this!

Phillip Strickland‘s testimony was shared by his parents.  They also thanked those who have prayed for Phillip.  I’m passing it on to you.  Phillip is taking another treatment today.

My God is an awesome God!! In December of 2016 I was diagnosed with colorectal cancer and was told I had one of the largest tumors these doctors have ever seen. Through prayers and my faith in God, after my rounds of radiation that tumor was completely gone and everyone was amazed at the response to treatment that I had. After my surgery to remove the remaining disease we found out the cancer had spread to my liver which they think it had probably been there all along but didn’t show up in the type scans I initially had. Though this was a set back, I never lost faith because I knew God had my back and I knew I had lots of people praying for me. After my 6th chemo treatment we had another round of scans and as of today I have no active cancer cells in my liver. I still have a long journey ahead of me but I wanted to make this post today as a testament to my faith in God’s healing power and his love. #strongerthancancer

Wednesday Night at 6 P.M. – Children of FBC, Kentwood will have missions and crafts class.

 

“Holy Bible, Book Divine” – I’ve had the privilege of teaching the children at church Bible Drill classes this summer.  It is amazing what they can learn and remember.  It’s never too early, or too late, to begin teaching children about the Bible.

 

Operation Christmas Child – Only 25 days until the packing party!  It’s time to begin finalizing that we have what we need for the “shoeboxes”.  David and I are so excited to be a part of this ministry!

 

Our prayers count!

Anna Lee

 

 

Monday

“Do not be misled:

‘Bad company corrupts good character.’”

 ~1 Corinthians 15:33 NIV~

 

 

I’m thankful we were spared any of the problems associated with Hurricane Nate.  Yesterday was a beautiful day in Kentwood.  That makes me remember that God can take a life headed for hell and turn it around.  That life can be a blessing and an example for others.

Sunday, we had the opportunity to worship with many of our neighbors.  We enjoyed being a part of their congregation for the day.  We found time to visit our friend, “Miss” Ruby, in the hospital and to twice spend time working with Operation Christmas Child donations.  If you would like to make purchases of needed items, please ask me about current needs or check the list under the stairs to the balcony.

David and I get more excited as time gets closer to being able to ship and pack the items in three and a half weeks.  This project means so much to us because we have seen the shoeboxes as they were received and opened by children.  We know each box represents gifts, but the greatest gift in each shoebox is the opportunity to learn and accept Jesus, not only for the recipient, but for the extended family who will all get to hear about Jesus.  I’m thankful for Samaritan’s Purse!

These are the things you are to do:

Speak the truth to each other,

and render true and sound judgment in your courts;

~Zechariah 8:16~

 

Donna Fay Miller is still coughing and having medication issues.  She goes back to the doctor today.  Please continue to pray for her.

Theople Hurst was released from the care of her doctor who did her recent gall bladder surgery.  “Miss” Theople is most anxious to get back to church.

Jimmy Alford, David’s brother, saw his new cancer specialist yesterday to discuss the plan for treatment.  Pray for Jimmy as he begins a tough round of treatment.

Ruby Dillon has had two or three more difficult days.  Pray for “Miss” Ruby as doctors are still trying to identify her problem.  Pray also for Mr. “Cete”, her personal caregiver.

Bible Study – 10 A.M. today on Ezekiel 25

Baptist Press http://bpnews.net

Read the Bible – Acts 3-4 and Psalms 120

Operation Christmas Child – Washcloths are still needed!

Postage for “shoeboxes” is still needed.  When I think of how much it costs me to mail a shoebox size package to my family overseas, I quickly realize what a bargain this postage really is!

Georgia Barnett Offering for Louisiana meets needs.  Remember, 100% of the money given goes directly into various projects here in Louisiana.

 

 

“Work, for the Night is Coming”

 

I don’t usually include weather information, but with “Nate” quickly coming our way, I want to ask you to prepare in the way that is best for you and your family.  It looks like it will be hear during the very early hours Sunday.

 

Your prayers are greatly appreciated by others.  Keep them coming.

Anna Lee
