Thursday

So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him,  rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.

~Colossians 2:6-7~

 

 

Pray for Alice Faye Lee who is not feeling her best.

There will be no gathering at the cabin tonight.  Thank-you for your understanding.  David is improving, but still tires easily and is weak.  He has regained a few pounds, but has many more to regain.

Last night, we played a game about choices.  There are many we must make in life.  The most important one is inviting Jesus into our hearts/lives.  The decision is important for children, youth, and adults!  Have you made the correct choice?

“Find a quiet, secluded place so you won’t be tempted to role-play before God.

Just be there as simply and honestly as you can manage.

The focus will shift from you to God, and you will begin to sense his grace.”

Wednesday Update

I haven’t shared about David in a while, because he was undergoing many tests and we had no answers.  I can say that most of the tests showed he was doing really well.  Two areas of concern now are his stomach which has many pre-ulcer places and his gall bladder which seems to have stones.  Both of these could cause the symptoms he has had.  We are waiting for reports on biopsies that were done a week ago.

Thank-you for your prayers for him.  He does feel a little better, but is certainly not up to a regular daily routine.  His diet has been changed.  Also, he has many pounds to regain while all this is happening.  Please keep praying.  We appreciate your prayers.

 

You know we love to have the Third Thursday Gatherings in the cabin, but we will put them on hold until we get more answers and do whatever is required.

Mr. John Alan Blackwell was moved to Amite’s Tangi Pines yesterday.  I feel like he will appreciate some visits from his friends.

A great report: Dee Dee B. Matthews, niece of Betty Simpson and Ora Lee Wilson, has shown good improvement.  She still has a lot of issues, but is certainly better than she was right after the accident.  Keep praying.

 

 

Yesterday, I was asked to request prayer for someone, but not to give a name.  Today, I have been asked to report that Angela Headrick is the person who had a thyroid test that was inconclusive.  Results from a more recent biopsy have not given results yet.  In the meantime, you are asked to pray for Angela as she awaits the report.

 

 

Mrs. Bessie Hayden is still at home and waiting to go back to the hospital in a few weeks.  Please pray for her diabetes related circulation problem.

 

 

Adrian Phillips is having a problem with another buildup of fluid.  Pray medication will solve his problem.

The group at the cabin last night included two new guests as well as representation from eight different churches.  We were so blessed by all present, the devotional shared by Bro. Darryl, and the wonderful music shared by James Rimes and Sherman Cutrer.  Sherman has had some serious health issues and numerous (I think he said 13) surgeries since he was last at the cabin sharing with us.  It was another great Third Thursday.  Feel free to join us sometime.

 

 

The Friday Morning Bible Study will meet at 10:00 this morning in the fellowship hall of FBC, Kentwood.

 

 

Tomorrow morning at 9:00, we will meet in the fellowship hall to begin preparation of items for Samaritan’s Purse Operation Christmas Child.  Everyone is invited to spend the morning with us.  Working together on this project will help get us started on our collection process for the Christmas season deliveries around the world.  Children, K-5, the age group of the Wednesday night missions class are especially encouraged to come.  It is not too late to bring some of the items previously listed.  They can be left in the red basket at the church or left in the fellowship hall TODAY.

 

 

Another group of Bibles were delivered to the church yesterday.  Three calendars were brought to the cabin last night.  These items will be used by inmates of the Tangipahoa Parish Jail.  I will get these items to the group that ministers there on Thursday mornings.  Thank-you for doing your part in helping to collect items.  Pray for the many men and women there.
