Sunday

I’ve had my computer internet unplugged all night due to the lightning.  I’ll be brief….

The LORD will establish you as his holy people,

as he promised you on oath,

if you keep the commands of the LORD your God

and walk in obedience to him.

~Deuteronomy 28:9~

 

Read the Bible – Romans 7–8 & Psalm 136

 

This week, we are coming to a close in the collection of Operation Christmas Child items.  Bring those you have today.  I would appreciate other items as soon as possible.  I appreciate the help of any of you as you contributed funds or items.  I know it all goes to a good cause.  We are on the final countdown leading up to packing.  It’s less than two weeks away now….

Keep your umbrella’s handy!  My flowers and grass will be happy for the rain.  The neighborhood fields will be too!

Thursday

Why, my soul, are you downcast?

Why so disturbed within me?

Put your hope in God,

for I will yet praise him,

my Savior and my God.

Psalm 42:11

 

Lampton Dean Titus, son of Tedd and Kayla, had surgery yesterday. This morning, doctors are working hard to control/correct a problem.  Your prayers are needed.

Update on Lampton Dean…….. I know it’s early but please send lots of prayers!!! The doctor just told us that Lampton is starting to lose blood flow in one of his main arteries in his groin/leg where they have one of his main IV lines at. He was starting to lose color in his leg and it’s starting to get really cold so it has to be moved now!! They are having to move it cause if they leave it he could lose his leg. They are going to be doing a small procedure to move that IV line with risk of possible blood clots. We will be going to see him in a little bit whenever they let us. We will update everyone as soon as we know how everything went and how he’s doing. Please send lots of prayers that everything goes smoothly and that the feeling and color come back in his leg!! Our little man has already been through enough!! 💙💛#LamptonStrong💛💙

Mrs. Annie Bell Harrell is in Lakeview, not St. Tammany.  Doctors have identified pneumonia and are continuing with more tests.  Please be praying.

Operation Christmas Child – I will have a list of items I need to complete the shoeboxes on a black clipboard under the stairs to the balcony.  These are the items we need to complete the shoeboxes we plan to fill.  If you would like to help, please sign in the with the items you will bring by next Sunday.  Thank you for helping pack these boxes to deliver hygiene items, gifts, and a booklet about Jesus that will introduce a class to teach children about Jesus in their own language.  Or donations to pay for postage are at 51%.  You many mark your envelope “Postage for OCC”.

The shoeboxes are folded, the labels are ready, most of the gifts are in.  Packing of shoeboxes will be three weeks from tonight.  I am so excited!  I hope you will plan to be there.

 

Let your actions today show Jesus to others.

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

Wednesday Night at 6 P.M. – Children of FBC, Kentwood will have missions and crafts class.

 

“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!

 

Our prayers count!

Monday

“Do not be misled:

‘Bad company corrupts good character.’”

 ~1 Corinthians 15:33 NIV~

 

 

I’m thankful we were spared any of the problems associated with Hurricane Nate.  Yesterday was a beautiful day in Kentwood.  That makes me remember that God can take a life headed for hell and turn it around.  That life can be a blessing and an example for others.

Sunday, we had the opportunity to worship with many of our neighbors.  We enjoyed being a part of their congregation for the day.  We found time to visit our friend, “Miss” Ruby, in the hospital and to twice spend time working with Operation Christmas Child donations.  If you would like to make purchases of needed items, please ask me about current needs or check the list under the stairs to the balcony.

David and I get more excited as time gets closer to being able to ship and pack the items in three and a half weeks.  This project means so much to us because we have seen the shoeboxes as they were received and opened by children.  We know each box represents gifts, but the greatest gift in each shoebox is the opportunity to learn and accept Jesus, not only for the recipient, but for the extended family who will all get to hear about Jesus.  I’m thankful for Samaritan’s Purse!

Saturday

With this in mind, we constantly pray for you, that our God may make you worthy of his calling, and that by his power he may bring to fruition your every desire for goodness and your every deed prompted by faith.  

We pray this so that the name of our Lord Jesus may be glorified in you, and you in him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ.

2Thessalonians 1:11-12

 

When we go to the hospital or nursing home, I often wonder who is there that we would visit is only we knew they were there.  I remember the day when there was a patient list available for visitors, but understand why that is not the case at the present time.  This leads me to say that even though we saw three friends at the St. Helena Hospital/ Nursing Home Tuesday, there were at least two more we would have visited if we had only know they were there.  Mrs. Anne Hurst is in the hospital and Mrs. Judy Purvis in the nursing home.  (I forgot the new last name for the second lady and didn’t ask Rusty or Becky because I think many of you will recognize her Purvis name better.)   I appreciate receiving phone calls from some of you who help me know about friends and family members that I need to list here.

 

Read the Bible – Acts 5-6 & Psalm 121

 

The Two Rivers  meeting planned for Sunday night at FBC, Kentwood has been postponed a week due to “Nate”.  I assume we may revert to our usual Sunday night schedule.

 

Yesterday, Henry and Virginia McKenzie and David and I worked on counting and sorting the items we now have for Operation Christmas Child “shoeboxes”.  We have what we need for most items, which is very good.  The key items we still could use are washcloths, pencils. and pens.  Since I called the names of those who helped yesterday, I would also like to say Miles Hatchel, Jennie Hatchel, Diane Simons, Ora Lee Wilson, and Summer Clemsons have also helped.  Many of you have  contributed.  This is an enormous project that is possible only with your support.  Thank-you all for supporting Operation Christmas Child!  Check the poster by the piano to see how we progress on collecting postage to ship the boxes.

 

I’m thankful to hear “Nate” will not be as strong as some of the past hurricanes.  Let’s continue to pray for those in the path of the storm wherever it choses to go.

 

Make today a blessing to someone by your words and actions today.

Anna Lee
