“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.

Sunday

Though the fig tree does not bud and there are no grapes on the vines,

though the olive crop fails and the fields produce no food,

though there are no sheep in the pen and no cattle in the stalls, 

yet I will rejoice in the LORD, I will be joyful in God my Savior.

Habakkuk 3:17-18

 
Let’s remember the flood of August 13, 2016 and especially pray for those who are still displaced.

Thursday

A person’s wisdom yields patience;

it is to one’s glory to overlook an offense.

~Proverbs 19:11~

 

 

Josiah Huckaby, son of Job and KK

Josiah is 5 months old as of yesterday…he has been doing really well. They decided to put a nephrostomy tube in on Friday to drain one of his kidneys because of an obstruction from a kidney stone. His other kidney has an obstruction that will require reconstructive surgery in the future. The tube ended up coming out on Sunday & they were going to have to replace it on Monday. They decided to do another ultrasound to see how that kidney was looking…and PRAISE GOD it has improved enough that they won’t have to replace the nephrostomy tube for now. As of right now, the goal is to wean his oxygen down to home settings so that we can start discussing coming home. He has been staying awake all day (he can’t stand to miss any of the action) & sleeping all night…hope he keeps that up. 😉 He loves kicking his feet constantly while he’s awake & he’s starting to smile again! He also loves sitting up & watching people. He wiggles so much the nurses are always having to make sure he hasn’t wiggled to the bottom of the bed…they are constantly having to scoot him back up. Day 155 in the NICU has been an awesome day for Josiah! God is so good!!!

Mrs. Mimi Sneed was able to go home from a friend’s house where she was staying.  She did have to go for more medical tests yesterday, but the results were good.  Pray for her as she recovers from her accident.

Bettye Fussell is moving ahead to her next round of treatment which will begin Monday.  Pray for her to have strength and endurance for this phase of her “battle”.  She certainly has faced this journey with a positive attitude.  Keep her in your prayers.

Thank-you for praying for Jennie as she traveled.  She’ll be able to speak to many of you at church Sunday or the following Sunday.

Read the Bible – Malachi 3-4 and Psalm 64

 

I hope you will be attending your church today.  If not, choose one and attend.  Of course, asking a friend if you can go with them is always a good option.  The point is to get up and go.  You will be blessed.
