Then he continued, “Do not be afraid, Daniel.

Since the first day that you set your mind

to gain understanding

and to humble yourself before your God,

your words were heard,

and I have come in response to them.  

~Daniel 19:12~

 

Koltyn Gafford has been slowly improving in many ways since his accident.  Yesterday, a doctor determined that his right eye, that had been the weaker one, is now the stronger eye.  Thank God for those who continue to work with him on a regular basis, especially his mother.  Thank God for all the “small steps” Koltyn has made.

The bad weather is headed this way again.  Pray for those in its path today.

There are always a number of people undergoing tests of various natures.  I’ll not list names, be please be aware of some of these people and offer to help in whatever way you can.  Helping people in their time of need is a great and meaningful ministry.

Week of Prayer for the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering for North American Missions (Canada & USA) – Day 2

Barry and Amy Rager – http://anniearmstrong.com/missionaries-2016/

Missions Opportunity

You are invited to FBC, Greensburg to learn about the Annie Armstrong Week of Prayer for North American missions.  The theme this year is “Here I Am/Send ME”.  We will meet at 10 and end with a potluck lunch.  Everyone is invited to come.

  •      Did you realize 33% of the people in the South are unchurched?
  •      Did you realize 73% of the people in Canada are unchurched?
  •      Did you realize 90% of the people in western states are unchurched?

Even if you cannot attend the meeting this morning, I hope you will want to support the efforts to change the statistics I just listed.  You can do this at any Southern Baptist church.  One hundred percent on the money given will be used  for that purpose.

Have a marvelous Monday.  Remember to pray the prayer that is always perfect. “Thy will be done”.

Anna Lee

 

Sunday

A verse we all need to be reminded of periodically…

Do not be quick with your mouth,

do not be hasty in your heart

to utter anything before God.

God is in heaven and you are on earth,

so let your words be few.

 

First, I want to mention three families I saw at the LA Heart Hospital in Lacombe.

  1. Robert Landry, from Amite, was leaving, but had been a patient due to A-fib.
  2. Jimmy Williams was  there for a couple of days.  I had a good visit with Linda.
  3. Gloria Gill was there for an outpatient test.  She will have a heart ablation next month.

Rebecca Williams, mother of Matt Williams, a former resident of Kentwood, will be having a heart ablation next week in MS.  Keep her in your prayers.

Carolyn Kirkfield, the wife of the late Rev. Charles Kirkfield, is very sick.  Please pray for her and her family.  Her children are Teri and Chad.

Bobby Black, a good friend of Jason’s from summer staff at Camp Ridgecrest in North Carolina, will soon be healed of cancer in heaven.  Bobby is from South Carolina and was a part of Jason’s wedding.  He is a young man, but has touched many lives.

Larry Watts is having more issues.  There is a possibility they are caused by a reoccurrence of cancer.  He is at North Oaks.

If

my people, who are called by my name,

will humble themselves pray

and seek my face

and turn from their wicked ways,

then

I will hear from heaven,

and I will forgive their sin

and will heal their land.

Easter Sunrise Services – I know of two places where  you can celebrate the resurrection this Easter morning at sunrise.  If your church has a service scheduled, please let me know so I can share the information.  We can’t be at more than one place, but  we can make a good choice if we know all the options.
