It’s beginning to look a lot like a missions project day!  I hope to see you Saturday morning at 9 A.M. in the fellowship hall to work on some project for Operation Christmas Child.  Everyone, men, women, boys, and girls, is invited to participate.    This will be out last project day before the collection week, which is coming up in November.

 

 

I was asked to add a very sick child to our prayer list.  He is Lane Gottschalk.  Please pray for him.

 

 

Please continue to pray for the people in the path of Hurricane Florence.  Pray for the storm trackers as they make predictions that influence many lives.  Pray for electrical personnel and a disaster relief people as they head into that area to help the people who will have problems with the storm.

 

 

Many of the storms of our lives don’t come with names in alphabetical order or so much warning, but they some unannounced and without all the outside help.  That’s okay, because God is there for us.  He can handle any of the problems we face if we give him our worries.

What a day with lots of memories yesterday (9/11) was.  May today be a day of preparation for people in the path of Hurricane Florence.  May families make wise decisions regarding the storm.  I clearly remember how life stopped it’s regular routine after Hurricane Katrina. 

 

 

Pray for Baptist Disaster Relief teams as they get in place to begin hurricane relief.  Thank God for the many people who so freely give of themselves to help those in need.
