for they will be shown mercy.”

Update on David
Day 18 in ICU: they removed the bladder catheter, stomach catheter and staples yesterday. He sat up in the chair a total of 12 hours. He sat 8 hours, then took a break and then sat up again for four hours. He does have increased pain from some sutures that became infected. They will be using the wound vac today. He is still retaining a lot of fluid which prevents him from bring weaned from the oxygen to a level that will allow him to
Leave ICU. He is at the point where he needs to push himself to be more mobile and do the exercises past his comfort level. He had his 1st meal today- vegetable broth, Apple juice and orange jello. All of his favorites 😊. I was proud of him – he managed to force it down. Thank you for your continued support to us. We appreciate your thoughts and prayers.
Mrs. Anne Hurst is in room 10 at the St. Helena Hospital. I know she would love to hear from/see you. Keep her in your prayers.
Mansell Stinson went back for a check-up yesterday. James Rimes, who took him, said that for the first time, Mansell seems to be “pain-free”! Let’s pray he can stay that way.
Kenny Ray Gill went in for double knee replacement, but did not have surgery because he had some sort of an insect bite. So, surgery will be rescheduled for a later time.
Lisa Pitri received a wonderful report and will not need additional treatments, only periodic check-ups for now.
Bob Brooks who was hospitalized briefly is now home. Please keep him in your prayers.
Connor Corkern is still at Children’s Hospital in New Orleans, but is improving. If he continues to do well, he will be coming back to Kentwood soon.
Lisa W. Carruth is in Baton Rouge for a procedure today. Please keep her and her family in your prayers.
Continue to pray for Mrs. Hazel Smith. She is at home.
Continue to pray for Barbara Hurchinson. She has a few more days of rehab/physical therapy in Hammond before coming back to Kentwood.

Operation Christmas Child (Shoeboses)
Even though we have our boxes packed and waiting for the collection centers to open, let’s pray for other churches/schools/organizations that are still working on their shoeboxes. Let’s also pray for the children who will receive each box and each member of the families where the boxes will find a home. May many of the children and families meet Jesus through the shoebox!
