“‘Tis So Sweet to Trust in Jesus”



“Anabel and a Personal Note” –



Getting involved at church is so important.  No matter what church you attend, be involved in more than just one hour of worship!

Anna Lee


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.

Anna Lee





If you declare with your mouth,

“Jesus is Lord,”

and believe in your heart

that God raised him from the dead,

you will be saved.

For it is with your heart

that you believe and are justified,

and it is with your mouth

that you profess your faith

and are saved.

~Romans 10:9-10~

it desires to have you, but you must rule over it.”

Operation Christmas Child – What a blessing to go into a store to purchase items for OCC shoeboxes and see a Sunday School member shopping for items for shoeboxes, to have messages about what someone has purchased, but will not be able to turn in until next week, or to walk into the church and find bags of items someone dropped off for us. This is a major project that takes many hands and many hearts.  I’m so thankful for all those who participate and do so over and over to help collect the many items we will need.


“Trusting Jesus”


Remember to have faith and to trust.

Anna Lee




Jesus said to him,“Receive your sight;

your faith has healed you.”  

Immediately he received his sight and followed Jesus, praising God.

When all the people saw it, they also praised God.

~Luke 18:42-43~

Operation Christmas Child – Last night, someone asked me to shop for them, as I have done before.  If you would rather not do the shopping, I will be glad to do that for you.  I will also show you what I purchased and give you the receipt.

This week we are shopping for pencils and pens. The following week we will be purchasing the $1.00 calculators.  They are on sale now at some stores.   If you find them, you may want to make your purchase now.


Be a blessing to others today.

I waited patiently for the Lord,

and He turned to me

Mrs. Estelle Raborn is also back at home in Kentwood.  As you pray for her, please pray for her faithful caregiver, her husband.

Pray for Andy Taylor as he has hand surgery this morning in McComb.  Pray for Betty as she also is a very faithful caregiver.


Read the Bible – Daniel 10-12 and Psalm 58


Thank-you to all who brought highlighters for Operation Christmas Child.  We will be collecting small glue sticks next Sunday.  I added a box under the stairwell steps for those who find it inconvenient to come to my classroom, but delivery to my classroom before Sunday School will still be an option.  I know we will have sufficient notebooks, but will check on other items and post their status periodically.  Each item you bring is greatly appreciated and will make some child very thankful.  Remember, the shoeboxes are an opportunity to share Jesus with the children.  Also, remember we will be collecting donations to help pay the shipping for the boxes.  The packing party will be the first Saturday of November.  Plan to be there to share the joy and excitement.


Friday morning Bible study will focus on Ezekiel 19 this week.


Start this week off right by checking on someone.  Both of you will be blessed!  It was certainly a sweet time when we share all the many names of those who are sick last night.  I trust each of you will make some visits….

Anna Lee
