You, LORD, are my lamp;

the LORD turns my darkness into light.

Jordan Hawkins, a football player who was injured Friday night, is better and back at home Saturday afternoon.  I’ve always been happy to hear that those who left a campus in an ambulance were able to return home with less serious injuries than first considered.  Thank you, God, for Jordan’s good report yesterday and for those of all schools who had such injuries.  Seeing both sets of players gather in one hurdle and praying speaks highly of the schools, the families, the coaches, and the players.

 

Please pray for Gloria Gill again.  Her A-fib has returned.

Pray for me as I share missions with the children who are new members of FBC, Kentwood.  Pray I can teach them in an informative, yet fun way.  Mainly, I pray they learn information about missions that will stick with them and influence them for the rest of their lives.

Maddie’s Miracles – Maddie is the granddaughter of a friend and former classmate.  You can read the posts on Facebook.  She is a beautiful young lady.

Maddie went back for her check up today (Monday). The pneumonia is still there and has moved. The pulmonologist said her lungs sound like a hurricane. She will take ten more days of antibiotics and see if it gets any better. She can’t get back on her kidney meds or get her port fixed until this clears up. Please pray for it to be gone!! She is still very tired and wheezy but no fevers so that’s a blessing. Thanks to all our prayer warriors! God is so very good ALL the time.

 

Bro. Mike Stafford, pastor of Greenlaw Baptist Church, is in OLOL undergoing some unplanned medical tests.  Please pray for him.

Josiah Huckaby – grandson of Bubba and Linda Huckaby

I can’t believe our little man turned 7 months old yesterday! Seems so crazy that it’s been that long since we started this journey. He is doing good & is off of the invasive ventilator. He is still on the non-invasive ventilator but definitely an improvement from where he was last week. He still hasn’t had his heart cath. They have rescheduled it for tomorrow. This is our 4th time being on the schedule so hopefully he won’t get bumped tomorrow for any emergencies. We are ready to have a clearer picture of what is going on. God is good & He’s got this!

Phillip Strickland‘s testimony was shared by his parents.  They also thanked those who have prayed for Phillip.  I’m passing it on to you.  Phillip is taking another treatment today.

My God is an awesome God!! In December of 2016 I was diagnosed with colorectal cancer and was told I had one of the largest tumors these doctors have ever seen. Through prayers and my faith in God, after my rounds of radiation that tumor was completely gone and everyone was amazed at the response to treatment that I had. After my surgery to remove the remaining disease we found out the cancer had spread to my liver which they think it had probably been there all along but didn’t show up in the type scans I initially had. Though this was a set back, I never lost faith because I knew God had my back and I knew I had lots of people praying for me. After my 6th chemo treatment we had another round of scans and as of today I have no active cancer cells in my liver. I still have a long journey ahead of me but I wanted to make this post today as a testament to my faith in God’s healing power and his love. #strongerthancancer

“Holy Bible, Book Divine” – I’ve had the privilege of teaching the children at church Bible Drill classes this summer.  It is amazing what they can learn and remember.  It’s never too early, or too late, to begin teaching children about the Bible.

 

Operation Christmas Child – Only 25 days until the packing party!  It’s time to begin finalizing that we have what we need for the “shoeboxes”.  David and I are so excited to be a part of this ministry!

Thursday

I desire therefore that the men pray everywhere,

lifting up holy hands,

without wrath and doubting.

~1 Timothy 2:8 NKJV~

 

Rene Terrell of Osyka had a 99% heart blockage that was repaired with a stent.  She is home now and feels thankful.  You can join her in thanking God for a successful procedure.

Jake Fowler broke his right thumb in the Sumner football game.  He required surgery, which was yesterday morning in Covington.  I called Wendy yesterday and found her mom was there with Jake as he rested.  The break was worse than everyone first thought.

Dominic Terrese, a classmate from Amite High is hospitalized following a hear attack.  As you pray for him, please also pray for his wife, Jane, and other family members.  Dominic and Jane live in Loranger.

George Cutrer had a post surgery check-up.  All seems to be going well.  Thank God for George’s good report.

Donna Fay Miller was able to return home late yesterday afternoon.  I’m sure she is so thankful to have her procedure done and be back at home.  Thank you for praying for her.

Remaining Faithful

School has been underway for at least a month, just long enough for students to get settled in to new routines, teachers, and classmates. Many missionary kids (MKs) are homeschooled, some attend local national schools, and others go to boarding school. College-aged MKs are usually thousands of miles and oceans away from their families. Please pray for MKs as they face unique challenges like extraordinarily slow internet, homesickness, or adjustments living in a different culture than the one where they grew up. Pray that they will remain faithful to God as they grow in knowledge of Him.

(This came to my computer this morning.  Since I have four MKs, one a college freshmen and three in an international school at home (Europe), I felt it might encourage others to pray for children who live in cultures and environments different to what children around here do.

 

Operation Christmas Child – If you are interested in making some purchases this week, please check out the blue page on the black clipboard on the table under the stairs to the balcony.  Sign the page for items will will purchase.  Thanks!
